12/7 Opscode Ticket Triage


Today we learned in triage that having four people in a screen share
doesn’t make reading CAPTCHAs any easier. That was apparently a
difficult lesson for us as we worked around the CAPTCHAs
administratively instead.

Chef 0.10.6.rc.5 went out yesterday. I really, really want to ship
this. Probably Monday, maybe Friday if my schedule for the weekend is
open enough to be around in case of disaster. It’s full of win and now
we’ve got win piling up behind it.

We’re seeing an increase of people getting past the CLA step and now
understanding that their CLA has to be processed before they can
continue on JIRA seems to be the pain point. As it turns out at the
summit, a number of people were finding the ticket site through a web
search and didn’t see the How to Contribute page. We’ve re-written the
introduction on the dashboard of ticket site and hopefully it stands
out a bit more now: http://tickets.opscode.com

We have had a solid supply of tickets lately. Missing triage last week
put us a little behind, but we’ll catch right back up soon.
