Different tools for different jobs. Here’s what we’re using at the moment:
Discussion & planning
- groups.drupal.org/usability for discussions and posts that go beyond fixing a single issue.
- Daily talk and weekly meetings happen in the #ux Slack channel at drupal.slack.com (get an invite automatically at http://drupalslack.herokuapp.com/)
- Weekly meetings are in Slack too. Here’s a calendar for the times and dates.
Doing the work
The day to day work of fixing things happens in the drupal.org issue queue. We tag issues to indicate what kind of skill is needed:
- Usability is the catch all term. If an issue touches the user interface in some way, give it this tag.
- Needs usability review. If an issue is blocked on design feedback, use "needs usability review".
- We're using similar tags to create the "sprint" and other topics pages here on this site
The issue queue doesn’t lend itself to design work that needs a lot of visualisation.
