Update / Review DRAFT - Koa Platform Release Notes
Site Configuration & White Label
update: it seems like the Open edX community isn’t interested in supporting this functionality
Can we talk to enterprise about removing these with assistance from DEPR?
We have code, templates, and data that all should be removed, but can be removed separately
talk to the service owners about removing site-specific code as well. does it make sense to deprecate this directly?
exclude: theming for now
Check in with Revenue team about https://openedx.atlassian.net/browse/DEPR-90
- Nimisha Asthagiri (Deactivated) write a DEPR ticket to gauge community reactions to the deprecation, offer up eduNext model as an alternative
- Diana Huang communicate with enterprise team about future plans to deprecate white label and get buy in and support

Last XModule removed from edx-platform!
Set up pinata celebration?
“One idea: When we retired Vertica recently, we each wrote Vertica tributes that were poems/odes/prose/limericks - and bbeggs read them all. That could be expanded to add PPT/Sheets presentations? And maybe fanfiction? Songs?” - Data Engineering
Round robin reading of odes
Mail everyone in the company one (1) piece of candy
Origami pinatas that people can make it at home
Ask Usman to stream himself destroying a pinata

Removal dates for DEPR tickets: can we just say this is the acceptance date?
Community is not comfortable with replacing front ends with MFEs
No Tutor plugins or single-install support yet

Can we measure the metric of DEPR work?
Agenda (3/30/21) -
Discuss metrics discovery
lines of code metric
recouped cost of upgrade
Focus on fewer metrics
Remove XQueue Watcher? Only 1 Partner uses it: MIT only for 7.QBWx and 6.00x courses. What is the purpose of this feature? Can it be either deprecated or deemed to be useful for other partners?
caused problems with the 20.04 upgrade
if we deprecate this, can we also deprecate XQueue?
we need a followup discussion (maybe with TNL? Ed? Feanil? Peter Pinch?) about what we need to do to get rid of this
- Understand the need for XQueue Watcher and its future
- Diana Huang to respond to just mention the general guidelines.
