The second sprint day has started, let’s have a recap from yesterday.

The sprint officially started yesterday. At the kickof all PLIP champions said what they would like to do this week and convinced others to join their teams. During the day new people arrived every hour and we will start today with 30 people.

As you can see, there is a main focus on removing stuff from Plone 5 to make it better and easier.

Breaking the build means cake for everyone

Buildstatus Screens

At the sprint there is one simple rule: If you break the Plone 5 jenkins tests then you have to buy cake for everyone. The tests failed a few times yesterday but of course that was nobody’s fault, so Four Digits got some cake to close the day.

Current excuses list:

  • It was already broken [tisto]
  • Its not a error, its a jenkins feature [bloodbare]
  • There is no excuses, i can fix it [bloodbare]
  • Its not even used, its the plip [tisto]
  • [garbas] Hi Timo, heard you broke the test! [tisto] WHO said that!

On to a good sprint day!
