Sugar Labs Roadmap

Phase I

Focus on Mission, Vision, and Values. This is a pretty high level discussion which builds on top of similar work we did last years. The emphasis will be 'what we share in common.'

Phase II

How we get there?

  • building capacity - building product
  • innovation - implementation
  • supply side - demand side
  • education - technology

The emphasis will be on what trade offs and compromises are required given our current and near term resources and how do we leverage our strengths while minimize our weaknesses.

Phase III

Iterative process between:

  • Personal Roadmaps
  • Team Roadmaps
  • Project Roadmaps

The emphasis will be on setting personal, team, and project level goals to make Phase I happen while considering the constraints identified in phase II.

Out of date

The Sugar Labs Roadmap provides a system for all of the individuals and organizations who develop and deploy the Sugar Learning Platform to coordinate their schedules and work flows.

The defining feature of the roadmap is the Release. Approximately every six months, Sugar Labs releases a updated version of the Sugar Learning Platform. Time based releases are effective methods for coordinating the efforts of loosely coupled organizations without introducing excessive amounts of managerial overhead.

Release dates up to and including .86 have been determined by the development team. Starting with .88, the release schedule will be determined by the Sugar Labs oversight board.

Rationale

The Release cycle is primarily a synchronization and coordination device. It is a iterative device, as such we are not going to get it 'right' the first time.

XXX clarify Currently, the primary release cycle driver is the development team. This is not because the development team is most import. It is because it was, and continues to be, a foundation block of the project. Now, it is time to add marketing to the foundation.

The second tier of blocks are the Activities team, Translation team, Documentation team, SoaS team. These teams build on the foundation team to create an enduser user product.

Support tier - Infrastructure, bug squad, deployment and education.

Tie it all together - Oversight, marketing and design.

Project Level

XXX Articulate Project level goals and targets. In general, describe how team level goal and targets affect project goals and targest

Schedule

Mile Stone Date Champion Notes
.86 String Freeze TBD TBD Necessary for Translators
.86 Design Freeze TBD TBD Necessary for Documentors and marketer for screenshots and other visuals
.86 Release 18 Sept 2009 Simon Necessary for downstream pickup
Unified SoaS release TBD Sebastian

XXX define .86 release date. In general, describe how the various team affect that schedule.

XXX define SoaS release date. In general, describe how the various teams and external organizations affect that schedule.

XXX anything important enough to be listed on this scheudal is important enough to have an assigned champion to insure that it happens on time.
