Hello all,

We will now be tracking our maps-related work in the Discovery-Maps-Sprint project[1], rather than the Maps project[2].

Maps will continue to exist, as a feature-centric list of tasks. However, it will not reflect the status of tasks (e.g. "In Progress" or "Needs Review"). That will be handled by Discovery-Maps-Sprint, along with the Maps column of the Discovery project[3]. In Maps, I have moved all the tasks into a single column, and have hidden the other columns, to avoid them accidentally being used.

I have copied all the Maps tasks over to the Sprint board, into the appropriate columns. Note that the columns in Sprint are a bit different than they were in Maps, to align with other Sprint boards within the Discovery department. For details on how tasks are handled, see the Discovery department process page[4].

I will be requesting phab herald rules to automatically ensure that Maps tasks automatically get sync'd between these three related projects.

Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.
