Call-for-participation: ROSIN software quality Working Group


The ROSIN project aims to raise awareness and improve the quality of ROS and ROS-Industrial through various initiatives.

As part of this we’re starting a working group that we’d like to help us with input to, and support for the implementation of these software quality initiatives. This working group will provide the main feedback to and prioritisation of these software quality improvement efforts, and thus has an important role in guiding the project efforts towards what the global ROS community finds important.

As we depend on input from the community (ie: all of you), your expertise and knowledge of what quality issues you encounter in ROS are immensely valuable to us. This role goes beyond merely advising: this group also has the authority to render decisions or judgment on specific issues that are raised within the group.

We’re planning to have monthly (or maybe bi-weekly) meetings where we’ll discuss past and future work and issues that may have popped up.

The kick-off meeting is currenty planned for the second week of January 2018. The precise date will be determined by availability of participants, and a meeting agenda will be circulated before meetings, which will be virtual and be held using Skype and / or Google Hangouts.

Applying: contact me (@gavanderhoorn) if you’re interested either via email or by sending me a personal message on Discourse.

We in ROSIN are excited about this opportunity and we are hoping that we - together with you - can have a real impact on the quality of the software that we all daily use.
