Spectrum Scale Request for Enhancements Voting
October 10 @ 16:00 - 17:00 BSTFree
GPFS/Spectrum Scale Users,
Here’s a long-ish note about our plans to try and improve the RFE process. We’ve tried to include a tl;dr version if you just read the headers. You’ll find the details underneath 😉 and reading to the end is ideal.
IMPROVING THE RFE PROCESS
As you’ve heard on the list, and at some of the in-person User Group events, we’ve been talking about ways we can improve the RFE process. We’d like to begin having an RFE forum, and have it be de-coupled from the in-person events because we know not everyone can travel.
LIGHTNING PRESENTATIONS ON-LINE
In general terms, we’d have regular on-line events, where RFEs could be very briefly (5 minutes, lightning talk) presented by the requester. There would then be time for brief follow-on discussion and questions. The session would be recorded to deal with large time zone differences.
FOLLOW UP POLL
A poll, independent of current RFE voting, would be conducted a couple days after the recording was available to gather votes and feedback on the RFEs submitted —we may collect site name, to see how many votes are coming from a certain site.
MAY NOT GET IT RIGHT THE FIRST TIME
We view this supplemental RFE process as organic, that is, we’ll learn as we go and make modifications. The overall goal here is to highlight the RFEs that matter the most to the largest number of UG members by providing a venue for people to speak about their RFEs and collect feedback from fellow community members.
RFE PRESENTERS WANTED, SUBMISSION DEADLINE OCTOBER 1ST
We’d like to guide a small handful of RFE submitters through this process the first time around, so if you’re interested in being a presenter, let us know now. We’re planning on doing the online meeting and poll for the first time in mid-October, so the submission deadline for your RFE is October 1st. If it’s useful, when you’re drafting your RFE feel free to use the list as a sounding board for feedback. Often sites have similar needs and you may find someone to collaborate with on your RFE to make it useful to more sites, and thereby get more votes. Some guidelines are here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1o8nN39DTU32qj_EFia5wRhnvfvNfr3cI/view?usp=sharing
You can submit by emailing your submission to firstname.lastname@example.org
PARTICIPANTS (AKA YOU!!), VIEW AND VOTE
We are seeking very good participation in the RFE on-line events needed to make this an effective method of Spectrum Scale Community and IBM Developer collaboration. It is to your benefit to participate and help set priorities on Spectrum Scale enhancements!! We want to make this process light lifting for you as a participant. We will limit the duration of the meeting to 1 hour to minimise the use of your valuable time. Please register for the event and voting using the Eventbrite link and we’ll send you details of the online meeting nearer the time.
