  • As part of the planning process, all projects will complete a project planning template.
  • The Infra working group will submit an infrastructure/CI plan describing changes planned for the release. Note that all changes must be completed by MS4.
MS2Test plan shared with the test teamEach feature project team will complete a test plan, describing the test cases that they intend to use to validate their project, including pass/fail criteria, and will share this plan with the test working group and other team members and solicit feedback. The test plan will also describe dependencies on any new test capability that is not currently available through existing test frameworks and how these dependencies will be satisfied. Project teams are encouraged to attend the Test Working Group meeting, or to setup separate meetings to discuss requirements.
