End of MozCI QoC term

We recently completed another edition of Quarter of Contribution and I had the privilege to work with MikeLingF3real & xenny.
I want to take a moment to thank all three of you for your hard work and contributions! It was a pleasure to work together with you during this period.

Some of the highlights of this term are:

You can see all other mozci contributions in here.

One of the things I learned from this QoC term:
  • Prepare sets of issues that are related which build towards a goal or a feature.
    • The better you think it through the easier it will be for you and the contributors
    • In GitHub you can create milestones of associated issues
  • Remind them to review their own code.
    • This is something I try to do for my own patches and saves me from my own embarrassment :)
  • Put it on the contributors to test their code before requesting formal review
    • It forces them to test that it does what they expect it to do
  • Set expectations for review turn around.
    • I could not be reviewing code every day since I had my own personal deliverables. I set Monday, Wednesday and Friday as code review days.
It was a good learning experience for me and I hope it was beneficial for them as well.
