Subject Re: Suggestions for Design Proposal Template
Date Thu, 09 Aug 2018 03:37:17 GMT
Hi Patric,

Design template is some preliminary work that I did and plan to propose as
part of the PR best practice(criteria). I am still working on the PR

Thanks for feedback on the Design Template and you make a great point. I
discussed a similar idea with a few contributors nearby (Steffen, Andrea,
Da, Haibin, Kellen) about adding a Shepherd to every medium and large
feature(what makes a medium/large feature is yet to discussed and agreed
upon) so authors can partner with another contributor to take their PRs to
completion. This will also expand the understanding of the code base.

Your suggestion aligns very closely to what I was thinking, I will add a
section called `Shepherd` in the template. I would suggest we have the
feedback happen on the cwiki document (you can double click a line to leave
inline feedback) or on dev@ list and the author can apply the feedback to
the design. I think the decision who would(or should) like to shepherd a
feature should also happen on dev@ as a part of the design discussion.

Yes I agree suggestions/feedback should be timely, whether it should be 1
or 2 weeks can be discussed and agreed upon here.

And also thank you for writing the design documents.

I will come back with a more concrete set of proposals shortly on the dev@
and meanwhile if others have suggestions happy to take them.

Thanks, Naveen
