Core Contributor Check-in: Mar 2nd - 15th , 2024

:stopwatch: Core Contributor Hours

Before I get to it, we need your help.

All CC’s would have received an email with the subject line: What do you REALLY think about the Core Contributor experience? It would really help us, help you, if you schedule some time to fill it in :wink: Thanks to those that already have!


Okay, let’s dive into the last sprint:

There was a total of 457 hours of contributions reported, which is about 10 hours more than the previous sprint of 447 hours.

The overall checklist response rate was 45% for this sprint, which is a 2% decrease from last sprint.
