Utilities PMC - 2015-11-09 Notes


Mike Dalessio
 

Hello CF Community!

Here is an update from the Utilities PMC, as of 2015-11-09. The full notes
are available at:

https://github.com/cloudfoundry/pmc-notes/blob/master/Utilities/2015-11-09-utilities.md

but I've reproduced them below for your convenience.

Please also join me in congratulating *Dies Köper*, of Fujitsu, who has
taken over as the PM of the CLI team after a "PM Dojo" that ended on
October 29. (*hold for applause*) Many of you know Dies from his presence
in the community and his previous contributions to Cloud Foundry, and so he
likely does not need a formal introduction.

Greg Oehmen, who previously filled the PM position for CLI, has moved into
a new role within Pivotal. I'd like to personally thank both Dies and Greg
for their amazing efforts on Cloud Foundry, and I'm looking forward Dies
helping to make a great product even better.

Cheers,
-mike

CLI

Dies Köper, of Fujitsu, has taken over the PM responsibilities for the CLI
team after completing a "PM Dojo" on October 29.

Dies has embarked on cleaning up the icebox (evaluating around 300 old
stories) as well as going through open Github Issues and PRs.

Congratulations, and thank you, Dies!

Risks

- Team resource levels unstable, with one engineer added and two rolled
off. This brings up the risk of loss of knowledge and context.
- Many days this fortnight we had only 1 engineer working (others were
sick, on vacation, had jury duty calls). Low staffing to continue with
anchor visiting upcoming CF Summits.
