As an incremental step, we are going to stop using the main Search
Team workboard to track "current" work, and will shift that into a new
(to be created) "Sprint" workboard. Despite the name "sprint", we
won't be using fixed-length iterations. This new sprint workboard will
last indefinitely, and will work like the team board has been doing.
The columns will track tasks as they flow from a small backlog,
through in progress, needs review, and finally into done. Speaking of
which, we'll document and formalize that at some point.
As soon as the new sprint board has been created and the existing
current work has been moved/copied to it, Nik will let you know, at
which point it should become your day-to-day focus. We'll also clarify
where to look for more tasks if there is nothing in the sprint backlog
that makes sense for you to grab and work on.
We haven't yet worked out the details of how we'll use the team and
freezer workboards. When we do, we'll let you know.
Imagine a world in which every single human being can freely share in
the sum of all knowledge. That's our commitment. Help us make it a
