The latest Islandora community sprint, announced back in October, is now underway. Sixteen wonderful people signed up for the two-week adventure into the Islandora 7.x-2.x codebase, and this morning the team met for the first time to take in a demo from Nick Ruest and Danny Lamb (recorded here for those who could not attend live). The sprinters then had their first "stand-up" where they went through existing tickets and picked tickets to work on.
We are tracking work through GitHub for this sprint, and you can see the list of issues here (you are very welcome to add your own!). We loaded the sprint with a lot of documentation tasks, with a special focus on basic user documentation to help new users get used to how to make their way around this new version.
Want to be a part of an Islandora sprint but couldn't make it this time? There will be another in December, and hopefully once a month thereafter, to keep development rolling on 7.x-2.x. Developers, documenters, and testers are all welcome. If you have the time and willingness to help, we will find an aspect of the project where you can work!
