I'm not really experimented at planning so if something takes less time than planned, I'll start working on the next sprint. And if something takes WAY more time than planned, I'll take a moment to brainstorm about is this feature worth it or should we priorize another feature for the best of Johnny ?

Also, make some refactoring(if needed) to Johnny, retest everything we have so far and prepare for next sprint and think about jumbo support. Which thing do we want to implement? is it possible ?what are the risks ? how will we do it ? Maybe make a prototype ? Start implementing version 1.8. Make builds for major platforms and send it to the list and johnny website.

Mathieu,

Please try and expand each task that is obvious to you with a bit more words. This will help you get a better grasp of what each tasks actually implies. Don't be afraid to look in the code if you're not sure. Also please ask if you are stuck or about the non so obvious ones. Aleksey has already started on trying disseminate the jumbo and 2john tasks in a separate thread. For those two tasks we'll work together to find arrive to a plan.

You can use Google Docs for this.

Shinnok
