Notes: Doesn’t have an urgency that brings it to the top.
Long runway was possibly less efficient than a shorter one
Hand-offs didn’t always happen when maintainers changed.
Need a scrum type ceremony – but maybe lower pressure.
Open questions in the wiki felt like this process was “half baked” (Ed’s word)
Pilot has been focused on one-time tasks, we’ll see what happens when we move into the on-going tasks, reviewing PRs for example.
Pinned dependencies is a solution to problematic dependencies, but we don’t always go back to them until we are, say, updating Django and have to deal with all of them.
Automate, automate, automate
Reduce work to what is absolutely necessary
Deprecate repositories we don’t need
Potential intervention: more frequent “deadlines,” smaller batches, more touch points.
