Thank Owen,

Sorry I missed the meeting.
Hopefully I'm not repeating something that was already discussed, but I was wondering if it would make sense to create GitHub issues for the work you are starting on, and use a GitHub project to track their statuses (https://github.com/AcademySoftwareFoundation/openexr/projects ) they look like trello boards and I've used them quite extensively before. One benefit would be more transparent progress communication with low overhead, and well integrated with existing GitHub processes. Another benefit I experienced was the feeling of dragging an issue across to the "Done" column which I found quite satisfying, but that could be just me :-).

Cheers,

Aloys

I have no objection to using this system. I think it might be better than maintaining a google doc (more integration with GitHub and permission control / sharing is easier etc). Unless anyone were to object to it I don't see a reason not to switch?

I vote we try it, if for no other reason than as an excuse to all get more experience with it, maybe we'll find it useful for lots more planning as we move forward on other projects.

I agree, let’s try it out. I didn’t know about the GitHub project thing, I would like to try it out.  I mostly started the sheet as a place to gather and organize stuff, and because I do like google sheets in general. 

I’ll work on filling out some issues later this weekend.

Since GitHub Projects are a component of a specific repo, the right place for this project is the new not-quite-yet created Imath repo. Creating it and moving the code over is the first step in the project. Once it's there, I'll set up the Project and create Issues for everything in the spreadsheet.

Thanks Cary,

Just as a FYI you can also create project at the Organisation level ( https://github.com/orgs/AcademySoftwareFoundation/projects that's a feature we dearly missed at the beginning! and you can link to some repos from there), but in this case it might still make sense to keep it to Imath.

Cheers,

Aloys
