Currently, StoryBoard is maintained by a small (but active!) team. This roadmap was written when the StoryBoard team was much bigger. We hope to go back to it as we grow, but right now we don't have the resources. For now:

  • SotK handles new features (currently worklists and boards)
  • Zara handles bugfixes, planning and maintenance (all over StoryBoard).

Priorities (in roughly chronological order):

  • Boards and Worklists-- due dates, then automatic boards and worklists
  • Making search nicer to use
  • File Attachments-- emphasis on pictures and logs
  • Tracking other task trackers-- launchpad would be nice

We estimate we'll achieve 2 items per cycle, so file attachments and tracking other task-trackers will be the two features to focus on in the Newton cycle. Other ongoing things:

  • Refine notification
  • Update story statuses from gerrit

Below is the old roadmap. The priorities look a bit different these days, but parts are still useful, as is the history! We'll still update things in it where we complete them.


This roadmap looks at the features we want in the OpenStack project StoryBoard deployment. It is derived from the features needed by the various groups we expect to switch to StoryBoard first, and lets us prioritize features. Tasks in italic are simpler and could be used as introduction or for internships.
