Choosing something to work on

Prior starting your work on your Deliverable labeled issues take a look at the Next Patch Release issue list.

Release planning

A few days after the 4th of each month, the Frontend team goes through all the issues that have been assigned to the next milestone by the Product Manager and that have the Deliverable label applied by the Backend Lead, regardless of any frontend label it may have.

If the issue requires some work from the Frontend team, and if there is enough capacity to accept the request, the frontend label is applied. If, for any reason, an issue cannot be scheduled, a note should be added to inform everyone about that. Obviously, when choosing which issue has to be rejected, the Frontend Lead can ask for more details to both the Product Manager or the Backend Lead that are responsible for the specific issue.
