Can switch down to one week iterations closer to major releases/milestones
Create user stories
Have a high-level planning meeting periodically, but less often than per sprint; perhaps every quarter or monthly?
Start by having a few people within the project team (Colin and Sepideh and Michelle?) to collect user stories and prioritize them
In the long run, aim to have user stories created by community members and our co-designers
Tasking meetings for each iteration, where we set priorities and estimate user stories
Daily stand-ups for the project team (in addition to keeping the whole community in the loop with the Daily Connections meeting)
Fine grained, technical issues are stored in JIRA (or Github Issues), but then we will use a more collaborative and annotative environment (wiki page? Google Doc?) with links to organize an iteration and/or larger milestone
Different levels of plans:
Whole project plan
Per-milestone (6 month period)
Tools we'll consider:
For user stories
For iteration plans
Simon at 80% FTE by February 11
Michelle at 40% FTE starting February 4
Avtar 80% FTE starting after his retreat
Sepideh 50% FTE after Feb 6
Create mailing list (what do we call it?) (Michelle)
"code and create"
"code to create"
"code learn create"
Gather topics for face to face meeting agenda (Michelle)
Support equipment purchases
Review the list of coding tools in our budget and work with Bert to get quotes and order them
Are there any tools that our partners would prefer?
Start with an initial "epic planning" by going through the CA milestones and creating user stories
