Discussion Points:

  • working with Systems team is in transition
    • Current point of contacts include Krish Seshadri (System Owner and Architect); (please include and cc: Mark on any communication)
    • We don't have anyone specific yet for building out the rest of the VMs
    • Going forward, there are two teams, organized by tiers:
      • System Engineering team is responsible for the system integration and deployment activities in the lower tiers (Dev/QA)
      • Systems Operations team is responsible for the production tiers (QA/Prod)
  • Trying to get attention from systems, so we went a list of tickets that are currently open, asking for attention
    • working on a list of tickets will hopefully keep the conversation organized and communicate our needs clearly
    • And thank you for keeping this list current: Systems Ticket Chart
