How to demarcate Jira issues for A11y across projects

  • Current Sakai of how to Demarcate Jiras
    • based around Sakai performance issue Jiras
    • 3 month study of the effectiveness of "labels"
      • Results in June
  • Downside of using labels is that adding them to Jira tickets does not automatically assign the Jira ticket, unlike a component
  • Joe biggest concerns
    • Hard to search for A11y issues across tools and projects
  • We need consistency across projects
  • We need to make sure we are capturing all A11y issues and addressing them
    • Suggestions to accomplish
      • A11y group tag
      • Come up with policy
      • Create components
        • Joe suggested we wait to create A11y components until label study is done
      • Add both a label and component
  • Label to use if we decide to use a label
    • A11y
    • Neil cautioned labels are free form and can't be controlled
