We're not talking about a Stage at the theater! Image result for clipart stage at theater Ha ha!


Please read this thread on slack, along with a few articles that were referenced.


  • "When do you need to really test on Stage?"
    • Can it be replaced with a staged rollout via Waffle?
    • Can it be replaced with careful monitoring in Production?
    • Can it be replaced with testing on a Sandbox?
    • Does it need to be tested at all?

  • Recommendation options: Keep it, Kill it, or Need more info.
  • Depending on discussion, we can follow up with "What would it take to remove usage of Stage within a month?"
