Kick-off project with expectations around time, schedules, vacations, and how to adjust as needed.
Lots of questions being raised was useful, but could we have anticipated this, and what would it have changed?
Co-developing may have helped. Potentially on same PR for certain types of actions.
More synchronous meetings when an issue has more than 2 back-and-forths?
Completed high-value work that is in Production and affects the Open edX community in a positive way.
Merged a large amount of pull requests with very few issues.
Create bookmark for all open blended ticket PRs, and keeping a project prefix [BD-21] in PR titles.
Making development schedule transparent.
Making use of
__future__ for introducing backward incompatible changes worked really well.
