As a participant in the project’s community, I can see the project’s plans, current activities, and resources in progress; I can comment, provide feedback and report bugs on these things; and I can share my own work with others.
The project’s collaboration tools need to provide:
A way to create and share Cards (descriptions of features and tasks)
A place to work on new resources that haven’t yet been published on the website or repository
An informal working space where we can collaboratively work on plans, documents, etc.
A place to share open summaries of our progress, priorities and current activities
The tool that allows us to create and share cards should include the ability to:
Combine media such as mockups, text, links
Be usable by people with varying tech skills (simple, not distracting with unrelated material or notifications, etc.)
Be publicly visible and linkable, so that it’s easy for people who are interested in the project to follow along, and to share with social media, etc.
Let multiple people edit documents
Include inline comments
A maintenance and hosting strategy—which is within the means of the project’s budget and resources today, and which will be sustainable after the project—should be identified.
See details above
Project team members (IDRC and Bridges at minimum) should agree that the tools suit their needs and expectations.
