A RESOLUTION to Release ShowInfo v1.0 by June 30, 2006
WHEREAS I had this really great idea a couple years ago about creating an open-source software package to allow fan sites and artists alike to share information about shows, and
WHEREAS this really great idea really hasn’t gotten anywhere in, oh, the last year-and-a-half—no, really, check it and see! :sigh:—and really needs to be acted upon, because, well, that whole SandraMcCracken.org thing really could use it, ya know?, and
WHEREAS the biggest reason that I’ve gotten nowhere is, well, inactivity, and
WHEREAS I have the basic idea mapped out in my head, but need to avoid the pratfall that all such hobbyist, would-be coders face of feature bloat, and
WHEREAS I recognize that I need to just declare basic functionality to be 1.0 and leave the fancy shit for later, because a fait accompli beats the hell out of a pair of aces, and
WHEREAS I’m clearly quite frustrated with myself here, because I just said “shit” in a resolution and am not upbraiding myself at all, and
WHEREAS my hangups with this subject have had this entry’s window open for, literally, twelve hours, and
WHEREAS I really need to get on with this resolution,
THEREFORE Let it be hereby resolved by the Board of Directors of GFMorris.com that:
- The scope of ShowInfo 1.0 be clearly defined by 31 Jan 2006.
- A milestone plan be developed by 15 Feb 2006.
- Milestones, being short, be aggressively scheduled so that the inevitable slips can still be absorbed and this likely-unrealistic deadline has a hope of being met.
- A final version of ShowInfo 1.0 be release by 30 Jun 2006.
THEREFORE Let it be further resolved that a report on the success of this effort be made no later than 2 Jul 2006.
RESOLVED on this, the seventh day of January, 2006, by the Board of Directors of GFMorris.com, Geof F. Morris, Resident Slackass, presiding.
