This is the retrospective for the most recent Core Contributor (CC) sprint from June 24th - July 8th:
This is what the core team needs help on now. Note that anyone can help – you don’t need to be a Core Contributor (yet!) for that. The question was “Is there anything where you could use help from others? Or that you would like to collaborate on?”
|I’d like to understand why the various frontend packages seem to have a lot of conflicting dependency specifications and if there’s a reason why so many core packages don’t even support React 17. Context: fix: support running this frontend in "developer mode" on Tutor · openedx/frontend-app-library-authoring@76c1756 · GitHub||Kyle McCormick|
|What is a CourseOutline? What is a CourseOverview? When/where do they get created? Why do I seem to be missing them sometimes?||Peter Pinch|
|Reviews needed on the draft charter for the election of the TOC community board members – see TOC Community Members Elections - Brainstorm thread - #3 by antoviaque . We will need to discuss further some of the TOC elections aspects - like whether to include learners in the voting or not.||Xavier Antoviaque|
|@maria - let’s work together on getting some of the course stuff defined that you were asking about||Sarina Canelake|
What went well these last two weeks / sprint?
|Made progress across diverse initiatives.||Edward Edward|
|There are a lot of documentation improvements going on!!!||Maria Grimaldi|
|Coordination with edX/2U is getting smoother
Discussions about the CC nomination process were productive, and helped clarify our policies.
|We’re starting to make better connections between the product working group and the BTR working group. I’m looking forward to having more and better forward-looking information feeding into the release process.||Peter Pinch|
|Many governance topics moving forward! And good discussions and advances on them recently.||Xavier Antoviaque|
Did you experience any blockers or have suggestions for improvements?
|Retrospective - Improvements||User|
|Improvement: I completely forgot to attend the virtual community event :cries:. From now on, I’ll block my calendar so this doesn’t happen again.||Maria Grimaldi|
|The backporting process is pretty convoluted, especially when it involves adding a patch to Tutor.||Kyle McCormick|
|We seem to have run into a lot of issues with nutmeg and database configurations. Perhaps this is inevitable with the migration from mongodb to mysql, and the fact that our table character sets, etc. may not be in sync with edx.org. I am concerned however that tutor users have reported similar issues, e.g. Emoji in subsection title not supported since Nutmeg - #3 by pdpinch||Peter Pinch|
|The migration process from older versions, especially from native to Tutor, is complex and problematic||Andrés González|
|Retrospective - Blockers|
|My other client work is taking up all my brain space at the moment, so I’ve found it hard to make time for CC.||Jill Vogel|
