Re: [epf-dev] Issues for Friday August 18th General and Overarching Issues Telecon


Steve,

There was an initial proposal and review related to bug 150707 - Usability of OpenUP/Basic Tree-browser. The current tree-browser in the published web site captures this proposal. As a consequence of that, new pages were suggested, mainly under the Getting Started section.
I'd recommend us to double-check with the current list of bugs, to verify if we are not missing anything. My first cut is:

- 150767 Getting Started  - this could be the text for the Getting Started node in the tree-browser
- write content for OpenUP/Basic Roadmap - relates to bug 140019. I'd move this bug from the 'to be reviewed' category and would reopen it.
- write content for Guideline: Using OpenUP/Basic - we need to create a new entry in Bugzilla for this.
- Additional Resources: Articles, Training Material and Presentations, Tutorials and Demos - this may be something new we haven't captured in Bugzilla yet.
- About page - does it relate to bugs 146450 and 146452?

Please ping me if you have any question or let's discuss that tomorrow.
Cheers,

[epf-dev] Issues for Friday August 18th General and Overarching        Issues Telecon





Hello everyone:
 
There is a wonderful _expression_ that goes “…nothing else focuses a man’s attention like a noose” and right now after disappearing for three weeks there is a very tight noose around my neck…sigh. There are currently 35 bugs associated with the General and Overarching issues. In my view most of these bugs fall into one of five categories:
 
1)     Minor issues (e.g. 146494 – index/contents.htm) which could be fixed with fairly little effort.
2)     Issues which have been resolved but not yet verified and therefore I cannot close them yet.
3)     Supporting document and presentation issues which require significant work still (examples are 150786 )
4)     Won’t fix, the bug is not important enough to divert the resources for.
5)     Not a general or overarching the bug will not be fixed as a general or overarching issue (a lot of documentation bugs have ended up here).
 
Of course there are a couple that I have no idea what they are about….
 
I believe a few of these issues have been resolved but the bug has not been accepted, nor has it been verified. For example, I assume that 133269 (“Add stake holder role to BUP) are done, but have not been moved to resolved yet.
 
Some of these bugs will not be resolved by September 30th. For example, 146443 (No examples). Some bugs like 146489 (Index seems light) could be worked on in our spare time. For the related 146487 (glossary is light) someone could accept this and act as a clearing house for updates. Perhaps our buoyant colleague Mark could take this on now that architecture is done J
 
The challenging work that remains part of the General and Overarching issues are those bugs associated with creating and reviewing content for the core principles. During the DC face to face Jim, Ana and myself began a review of the core concepts. Fortunately this review suggested that much of what is already written can be simplified. In my personal opinion, there are three “must have” white papers or guidance ready with the October release of OpenUP
 
1)     An OpenUP overview – Bug 150768 (this could also cover bug 150767 getting started)
2)     A user guide to understanding the core principles – Bug 147135 (which I have taken on sigh…)
3)     The look and feel of the intro page and the overall presentation of OpenUP – Per’s infamous bug 152354)
 
 
Here is my categorization of the General and Overarching Issues Bugs….

For a successful telecon on Friday what I really would like to do is simply keep the call topic restricted to bug fixing, who will take what. So at the beginning of the call I will ask for volunteers to accept defects from the “Trivial Issues” and “Requires Review” categories. It would be lovely if all of these could be resolved, verified and closed within the next two weeks.
 
If time remains, for the second part of the call I would like to get commitment on proceeding with creating introductory and user guide content for October (Intro/getting started, user guide to core principles, and  Per’s re-architecting bug). I regard these issues as critical because they influence how OpenUP shall be perceived and positioned.
 
Looking forward to a productive call tomorrow and to soon be able to say general and overarching issues are complete.
 
Best regards,
Steve
