Repo of the week: SQL (Metrics dashboard)

  • 29 uncommented PRs in SQL
  • 28 unlabeled
  • 20 untraiged
  • Issues · opensearch-project/sql · GitHub
  • There were a few PRs/Issues where we need to get back to people
  • We need SQL to have its own public triage. Currently it’s part of Search, but no one knew about that. Combine with a few components to make it worthwhile on its own.

Ensuring follow through on these meetings

  • Need improvement to follow up on the feedback on these meetings. Notes made in previous meetings don’t appear to have follow through.
  • Feedback on notes
  • Open an issue in the repo of the week: stating that they need to prepare and present, and then requiring a followup on actions they will take.

Keep going on feedback with this roadmap RFC:
