New Features and Changes

Weekly Reports


Here are the UI module meeting notes from ~2 weeks ago, the announcements section contains some quite important info: 2021-02-17 - User Interface.

Basically, the module is headless, or owner-less now, meaning it can only work on operational tasks (bug tracker, code review, documentation, …) and tasks that are preapproved by product management (currently Ton as stand-in). We’d like to find better ways to organize this though.

(Didn’t want to retroactively edit the previous notes).
