Great idea, Eric. By the time you're plotting out a budget (if it's
needed), I would suggest the goals be measurable. How about something
* Prepare Release Notes by completing the following tasks (not sure
what this is nowadays, but it might be something like):
* Review and ratify organization (essentially, confirm Docs team
is happy about the way it works, and if not, change as desired)
* Erase old content from wiki
* (insert stuff here)
* Complete the following chapters in the User Guide:
* For the translation bullet -- figure out the process changes needed
on the list (with trans@ folks), then figure out what needs to
happen at the FAD to make them a reality.
By the way, I sent in proposals for some talks in Ohio, and if I'm
selected and can swing the travel, I would love to participate.
Thanks for the suggestions, Paul. I've tweaked the goals a bit to
make them more measurable. Still need to quantify what we want to do
for the guides, though.
