Goals for Sprint 3:

The general goal is to create a tutorial, like many others on TE, with our graphical indicator.

The tutorial will have an entry to open up a page with dials just for that tutorial (in the same page of the tutorial).

Individual tasks:


  • Will send an enhancement suggestion report later to help us identify where we need to improve

Lenny& Diane

  • Diane will work with Alan to set up the latest version of WMD on the server

Note: there are some changes in xml format on the WMD, when a person tests his code on the server, he should make the change accordingly, it is up to you if you want to install the latest WMD or not(you may have to spend another 3 days on that, take the risk if you want)

  • Investigate other forms of the indicator, and pick one to work on
  • Prioritise the work according to Matthew’s enhancement suggestion

Godfrey & Michael:

  • Will keep the focus on locklist scenario, try to recreate it
  • Create tickets for the next deliverable
  • Michael will merge everyone’s code in the repository and create a release. So please make sure your code are all checked into your personal branch
  • Michael will upload the videos
  • Godfrey will tailor the video into a smaller resolution (something like 800*600?)

Jean & Sylvain:

  • Check the current code into repository
  • Create tickets for the next deliverable


  • Please post on WordPress regarding Greg’s email
  • Please use the category S3 in your tickets!
