    • The features needed by LC:

      • Clean up permissions
  • We will need a new PO.
    • Current time commitment has been low because we did not have a development team.
    • Responsible for creating Bugfest Tests and maintaining existing tests. Ensure bugfest tests are completed.
    • Tasks:
      • Writing features and User Stories
      • Attending meetings where the specs are refined
      • Working with the Dev team especially testing the feature and testing in Bugfest.
    • Often difficult to determine approaches to implementation
    • Generally it would be better to have more FOLIO-wide conventions for approaches to development and implementation
      • Cross-App SIG (formerly App Interaction) is a group where folks work to improve consistency across FOLIO Apps
        • Determining dependencies for the sake of making dependency checks for deletion
        • Reviewing workflow engine options in an attempt to find a solution that could be recommended for community use
        • Large portion of work is done asynchronously.
        • Maura, as convener, usually attends this meeting.
    • The new Product Owner would also be expected to attend the Product Owners meeting.
    • The expected time commitment, especially with the new features that will have to be made,  should be between 10-20 hours a week.
    • Function Owners would also be helpful for Users.

Patty will be available to help the new PO to get the hang of the job.
