Thanks for the great call today everyone! I’m really excited about the decision to focus for the first use cases being lab and medications. Were there any other specific decisions from the call that we should summarize for the community at-large here? @ccwhite23

In response to this:

  • JJ proposes a one approver policy
    • Squad agrees to move to one reviewer

Is that because there are no people to review? My humble advice is that, since the people raising these pull requests and the reviewers are both new to the module, it would be safer to require two reviews than one. With time, as they both get more comfortable with the code base, this can be changed to less. More reviews also have the added advantage of helping people get more familiar and up to speed with the code base. It does not hurt to have a pair of eyes on ones’ code. :slight_smile:

@dkayiwa - yes this is because we currently only have two people actively working on the code for the module.

@dkayiwa you make a great point about people here learning, and having two people could improve the oversight of the quality of the code. Let’s do this as a continuous improvement process, starting with single, keeping an eye on the result of that, and then revising to have two if needed?
