  1. Unknown User (ccsya)

    Re the Holburne - could Muse be prettified at the same time (would need new header includes)?

  2. Unknown User (ccsya)

    Is there anything in the Wishlist we could work on?

    My thoughts on this sprint for the retrospective etc... (requested by Alison as I will be away on Wednesaday)

    • There were a lot of things I coudn't actually do
    • I enjoyed doing the KeyMatches for the GSA and the user interface for the Opus macro
    • It was difficult to focus with so many different little tasks
    • It was nice to have the daily meeting with everyone and only be on one sprint, not two in parallel
    • It's difficult to comment on the outcome as I haven't actually seen much; most of the dev review tasks were code-related as far as I could see
