Reminder: Help Give Us a Name

Here’s a reminder that we’re looking for your vote! Many communities give themselves a collective name to help define a collective identity and build unity among the community members. The CHAOSS community decided to do just that at the last community meeting. We opened a poll to help us figure out what our name should be, and we’d love love love your input!

Please help us decide by voting in this sliding poll here:

We will keep this poll open until January 31, so if you haven’t voted yet and you want to, you still have time.

Recent Changes to Metrics Template and Checklist

In case you missed it or haven’t been able to attend our working group meetings recently, we thought we’d give you an update on the state of our metrics development process. With the release of MARS (Metrics Automated Release System) in October 2021 came some changes to the way we roll out new metrics. While there were process changes, there were also a few tools that were added to keep our metrics consistent across working groups and ensure all metrics fit a high quality standard: the addition of a metrics template and a metrics quality checklist for releases.

In the last few months, we have made some improvements to both of these things:

We are also now regularly revisiting previously released metrics to make sure these new enhancements are included and to improve the quality of the metric when needed, and we are developing a checklist and process for that.
