    4.0.0.Milestone 4 Post-mortem meeting

    • Forum post http://community.jboss.org/message/571660#571660
    • More details in the transcript
    • Main points discussed:
      • Code Reviews
        • Either did not happen, or had very little feedback/results
        • Need to make sure we get good peer reviews to help with initial quality
      • Git migration
        • Nick has been trying it, and liking it
        • some issues with windows client
        • Any migration will need to wait until at least M5 is out
      • Markup delays
        • PanelMenu as an example
        • Looking into alternate approach
      • Req/Dev meeting still going very well
        • For some non-trivial components need more impl/design info in wiki
      • Concerns over postponing jira's
        • Priorities have forced some items to shift
        • Full reviews need to be done for CR's and that will be the main focus of those phases
      • Mojarra version changed post freeze, and examples were not up to date.
      • Initial quality of components to QE
        • Not really different from QE's point of view
        • Should check showcase and dev samples better before freeze
        • Engineering suggestion
        • QUnit test runner as part of jboss-test suite
        • Complete Alex's example template work ( part of CSV )
          • Should cover skinning, test components in various containers
      • Misc
        • Mad dash of jira shifting and resolving at the end of the milestone
          • Again - need to make sure that jira is updated regularly so we know how things stand
        • CR release schedule discussed ( 1 or 2 week cycles, still in discussion )
          • Weekly, or bi-weekly releases of showcase would help dev, qe, etc…
          • Can not be public releases though
        • Migration is critical and needs to be addressed asap
          • Jay and Ilya will meet next week
