Set JIRA component lead to the component best expert


    • Type: RFC
    • Status: Adopted
    • Resolution: Unresolved
    • Component/s: DM

      I propose we ensure every component in JIRA has a component lead, and we set it to the best expert of that component.

      We considered assigning components to TCAMs in the past (see RFC-51), primarily because TCAMs could then catch issues with story points / PMCS etc, but I'd argue that TCAMs should be actively monitoring all activities that are happening in their area (RSS feed etc), so assigning components to TCAMs does not bring any extra value here.

      The component list and their leads are here: https://jira.lsstcorp.org/plugins/servlet/project-config/DM/components

      Based on discussion in the comments, this proposal now includes keeping the list OUTSIDE of JIRA.

      Thanks to Gregory Dubois-Felsmann for reminding me about BaBar package coordinators and making me open this RFC. Gregory said:

      BaBar "package coordinators" were meant to be, in general, the most knowledgable developer associated with a package - someone who could answer questions and make technical decisions about a package. I thought that was a good concept.
