    In this thread. However, outside this thread this certainly has not been the candor of speech impressed in our daily/weekly/monthly attitudes. Someone's butthurt is always seemingly more important.

    Quite right, Idiocy like a cancer grows.

    However that's not here, I'd leave other threads to be other threads.

    Because that's always a great idea.

    I didn't mean no oversight when writing that, but as it is (Or rather, as it was), Department Leads didn't have power over their own departments, there was so much unnecessary red tape that solely existed for the sake of appearing professional.

    I don't recall nor do I see currently any unnecessary red tape. We can and could pretty much do whatever we wanted already (within events).

    The comment wasn't directed at the EC's, GMs or Support members themselves, it was directed at the leaders of said departments.

    Hi Zalaxy. I'm the Scrum Master for the project so I'd be happy to comment on this particular question.

    There are several conflicts of interest and priority between the role of Scrum Master and anyone who is a member of the Scrum Team.

    By definition:
    • anyone who has accepted work in the Sprint Backlog to get a Player Story and one or more dependent Tasks "Done" will be members of the Scrum Team for that particular Sprint
    • Scrum Masters are never assigned work in the Sprint Backlog

    Any activity that a person is responsible for performing who can potentially be a Scrum Team member inevitably constrains our capacity for development within any Sprint. You would see this in the Sprint Backlog where the work commitments by the Scrum Team for each Sprint are documented.

    In our case, we have limited developers who can work on Core3 and in the case of our Development Team leader, the best use of his time is focused on developing and leading that effort.

    The responsibility of a Scrum Master, in our case myself, is primarily to ensure that Scrum practices are being followed and to remove impediments and obstacles that are affecting the ability of the Scrum Team to finish their work.

    That is the priority in use of time for the person in this role, and takes precedence over any other responsibilities such as potentially accepted work in a Sprint Backlog.

    In a business setting, Scrum Masters typically come from the Project Manager ranks and one Scrum Master may perform that role for multiple concurrent projects.

    In RL, the Scrum Team members do 100% of the documentation in the Sprint Backlog and Burndown Charts. We'll be using a tool called JIRA for that.

    However, in our case we want to absolutely minimize overhead that detracts from our limited Developer resource doing development, so I'll be doing most if not all the work in JIRA. Again, accepting work in a Sprint Backlog would be a conflict of priorities and time with that responsibility.

    Is there or will there ever be space?

    Holy necros batman.

    Likely, but that will not even be approached until after a vanilla 14.1 release.

    If I am correct, once the 14.1 is developed and put into 1.0 form, other things can be considered. I would not set your alarm clock for it if that helps. No ETA's are given for any current milestones for project. Sry.
