The Sprint 4 software is running well with most committed features.  There are some privilege restriction failures that should be easily fixed by OMBU.  We have completed S4 Beta Testing, submitted the defects, and marked all high priority defects that must be fixed to get our acceptance.

We will have more detailed conversation with OMBU regarding some challenges with the data model after the holidays.

We are making great progress on both Sprint 4 and data migration effort this week:

  • The Sprint 4 SW was demonstrated, deployed, and being tested. Sarah also created a training video to help beta testers to get up to speed.
  • The early Sprint 4 Beta testing showed very positive results. Most functions seemed to be working well.
  • Making great progress on Data Migration effort. Drafted more data migration templates, including Place, Badges, Activities, Activity Instances, and Climbing & Hiking Routes to facilitate data curation & migration work.

We are making great progress on data migration, but stalling on Sprint 4 this week:

  • All major defects reported for the Sprint 2 release have been fixed and verified. The Sprint 2 release is officially accepted by Mazamas!
  • Created draft data migration templates to facilitate both classes (education) and activity data curation work.
  • The Sprint 4 demo and software deployment was delayed from Dec. 8 to Dec. 13 due to illness on the OMBU team in WW48.

We are making great progress on both Sprint 2 and Sprint 3 software this week:

  • All major defects reported for the Sprint 2 release have been fixed and mostly verified. The only remaining fix to be verified by Mazamas is defect#19717: “when a Member’s Membership is soon to expire, a Membership Renewal Campaign will start automatically.”
  • The Sprint 3 release supports most committed features well without major issues. Thanks for a great effort from OMBU to complete features on time and fix major defects per plan. The test case and instruction videos from OMBU were very helpful for Beta Testing Sprint 3.
  • There are some outstanding Mail Chimp Synchronization and Customization Issues. The solution for the customization issues relate to email authorship and can be solved via a form submission of email text data from Email Authors instead of a direct login to MailChimp.
