Review of actions from last meeting

  • Dan remains not in a position to work on Subplot issue 22, which is fine, it can wait until he is able to help. We’re carrying this action. In the meantime we have dropped Subplot issue 22 from current-goal and filed Subplot issue 199 to deal with the bare-minimum needed before current-goal is met.

Review of the iteration that has ended

We made some progress on Subplot milestone 29.

We achieved:

We did not complete:

Review of the repositories

The subplot-web and subplot-container-images repositories have no open merge requests, branches, or failed pipelines.

The subplot repository has no open merge-requests, but has one branch for related to running subplot tests under Rust.

Issue review

We reviewed all issues last time, so we did only recent issues this time.

We agreed to leave alone:

We agreed to put into the new iteration:

We discussed the subplot-rust branch and ended up filing Subplot issue 200 and putting it into the iteration.

Current goal

Our current goal is to get Subplot the software and project into such a shape that we feel confident that we can ask a few people to give it a proper try. This requires for Subplot to have releases that are easy to install, tolerably easy to use, and to have at least some rudimentary documentation aimed at beginners.

Plan for next iteration

We created Subplot milestone 30 for the iteration starting now and ending in two weeks on 2021-06-19. We put the following issues in it:

We decided that we will both work on our two individual items before end of Friday 11th, so that on Saturday 12th we can do the “internal” release together.

What do we need to persuade others?

We’re getting close. This iteration we’re going to see if we can make a release, and make the website a little more welcoming.

Other business

We discussed issue-based agendas and decided that we would stick to our current process until and unless someone else is interested in joining in with the effort.

We deferred the discussion of flaky pipelines until after this iteration.

We discussed the Docker-images-with-subplot-in item and decided to open an issue on the subplot-container-images repository about publishing an image for building projects which use subplot.


  • Lars or Daniel to schedule pairing session with Dan to help him work through Subplot issue 22.
