Set JIRA component lead to the component best expert

      Description

      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.

            Do we need to make this https://jira.lsstcorp.org/plugins/servlet/project-config/DM/components compatible with the product list

            Wil O'Mullane — per your comment of 30 June and the policy in LDM-294, the answer to this is definitely "yes".

            ...more generally, as we've discussed, I'd really like to see lists of products and components made consistent across the system — so that LDM-294, LDM-148, Data Facility documentation, JIRA, etc use the same words to mean the same things. I think that would make this RFC much more tractable, and solve a bunch of our other problems. It's a significant job though...

            Once KT and Gabriele sort out the products/components yes I think Gabriele Comoretto can take over this.
