There are a number of teams within the Ops Backend group:
Each team has a different focus on what issues to work on for each release. The following information is not meant to be a set of hard-and-fast rules, but as a guideline as to what team decides can best improve certain areas of GitLab.
APIs should be shared responsibility between all teams within the Backend group.
There is a backend group call every Tuesday, before the company call. You should have been invited when you joined; if not, ask your team lead!
