Handling issues across all documentation

Discussion on adding a dedicated time for repo triage :

by @milana-cap

The easy and straightforward issues don’t need triage but for issues that need discussion and the team’s decision, we could add a label like “discussion” or “needs discussion”.

Based on the number of issues under that label we can plan the meeting time for triage.

@kenshino: The triage is required so we can build the habit and for people to pick up issues.

DECISION: Dedicate 15 mins to triage issues during the weekly doc meetings. Depending on the number of issues we can make changes to the triage time if needed. Keep this in mind when making meeting agendas.

Discussion on adding labels to issues requesting new document/article:

by @milana-cap

This is related to the PR – issue template that’s requesting a new page/article.

@milana-cap has added labels for 5.6, 5.7, 5.8, and 5.9 for releases.

@kenshino: At some point, we should have documentation tied to specific releases.

DECISION: Add “new document” label to the issues requesting new document/article, for now. @femkreations to update the issue template with the label.
