So we currently have FF tickets autocreated for each sprint, to block time for FF work.
Now that we have the sprints app, the app could instead auto-block time for FF, and we could do away with the tickets.
- Once the sprint starts, the FF and CR tickets are useless. We don’t log time to them, we don’t need to comment on them (in fact, we shouldn’t comment on them; we have the forum, ops review logs, created tickets for FF tasks …), etc.
- The tickets add a lot of noise to the sprint backlogs.
- They are annoying: you need to move their status along throughout the sprint, not forget to mark them as deployed by the end of the sprint, they get in the way of other tickets visually.
- Their only use (afaik) is to block time, and sprints app can do that now.
- We’re gradually moving to sprints app for more automation and general planning niceness.
- These tickets continue to block time by default, which adds to the issues planning time commitment for the next sprint.
