[maemo-community] maemo.org November sprint planning meeting

Hi, today is the day where we should have the IRC mneeting...

... however, it is too late to make a call today. Let's have it next

Some thoughts:

- As maemo.org goes community-driven, the role of the product owner
should also be filled by community members. I propose that the council
takes that role next week. I can assist if needed, but there is no need
for me to keep driving the meetings.

- There is an increasing detachment between the tasks and bugs committed
and the real work and discussion happening. Is this ok, not ok? The
product owner should decide.  :)

- Reporting is still weak and it is really not easy to know what is the
real status of most of the tasks committed. This is of course ok for
volunteers but (frankly) I think this is a problem for those getting
paid - myself included. Tero (equivalent to scrum master?) is the
project manager responsible of making good use of the money Nokia pays
for maemo.org tasks. Then again, if the council and Tero are happy, I
have no reasons being unhappy.

- There are still 100 Days tasks open. No information about the delays.

- It would be good to check regularly the 2010 agenda in the search of
new tasks to propose and commit. There is plenty of work to do, many
dependencies and (crazy as it sounds) 2010 is not that far far.
