Working on unscheduled issues

Everyone at GitLab has the freedom to manage their work as they see fit, because we measure results, not hours. Part of this is the opportunity to work on items that aren't scheduled as part of the regular monthly release. This is mostly a reiteration of items elsewhere in the handbook, and it is here to make those explicit:

  1. We expect people to be managers of one, and we use GitLab ourselves. If you see something that you think is important, you can request for it to be scheduled, or you can work on a proposal yourself, as long as you keep your other priorities in mind.
  2. From time to time, there are events that GitLab team-members can participate in, like the issue bash and content hack days. Anyone is welcome to participate in these.

When you pick something to work on, please:

  1. Follow the standard workflow and assign it to yourself.
  2. Share it in #g_manage to encourage transparency
