You can see how we work as a stage at the Plan stage page.
Like the backend team, we use the standard GitLab engineering workflow. To get in touch with the Plan frontend team, it's best to create an issue in the relevant project (typically GitLab CE) and add the ~"devops::plan" and ~"frontend" labels, along with any other appropriate labels. Then, feel free to ping the relevant Product Manager and/or Frontend Engineering Manager as listed above.
For more urgent items, feel free to also share the issue in #g_plan on Slack.
In that we value Velocity over Predictability, we prefer a lightweight system of issue weighting to help with capacity planning. These weights are used for capacity planning and the main focus is on making sure the overall sum of the weights is within 10 of the average of the past three releases.
We encourage anyone to add a weight to an issue if it does not have one. We use a similar scale to the Plan backend engineering team.
The Plan frontend board always shows work in the current release. The left column is a prioritized list of items scheduled for the current release that do not have a frontend engineer already assigned to.
When deciding the next issue to take, frontend engineers should prioritize the following:
Opencolumn that have one of the following labels: ~"workflow::In dev", ~"workflow::In review" or ~"workflow::verification". This means that backend has already started work and we want to have frontend work done as much in parallel as possible.
Opencolumn that do not have a ~"workflow::" or ~"validation::" label.
It's OK to not take the top item if you are not confident you can solve it, but please add a comment in the issue if that's the case, as this probably means the issue should be better specified.
When you pick something to work on, please assign the issue to yourself and add the ~"workflow::In dev" label.
