Looking for Feedback

Proposal: Creating GitHub project boards for SMEs and Translators

In a recent Faculty survey, we received feedback that Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) aren’t clear on how they can effectively contribute to the Training Team. In particular, the current “Topic Ideas” column in the Content Development project board has over 140 items, making it difficult for SMEs to identify which items fall under their areas of expertise. Additionally, the recently concluded Content Localization Foundations project also received feedback that it is difficult for Content Translators to track translation items in GitHubGitHub GitHub is a website that offers online implementation of git repositories that can easily be shared, copied and modified by other developers. Public repositories are free to host, private repositories require a paid subscription. GitHub introduced the concept of the ‘pull request’ where code changes done in branches by contributors can be reviewed and discussed before being merged be the repository owner. It has been proposed that two new Project boards be created for more clarity.
