Hi again,

Our next UX iteration planning meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, March  
18th at 10 am PDT / 1 pm EDT. My goal is to get these meetings down to  
no longer than half an hour in length so that we can all spend more  
time designing.

To help with this, I'd like to remind you to update your detailed  
tasks in JIRA for Iteration 5 by Monday evening at the latest. This  
will give me time to prepare the iteration spreadsheet in advance of  
the meeting.

1. Review the Fluid 0.3 UX project and release plans to remind  
yourself of our goals this quarter:


2. Update your tasks for the previous iteration, including the  
completion status and time spent.

3. Enter any new tasks into JIRA as subtasks of the high-level  
deliverables. Daphne has kindly done the work of creating tasks for  
all the primary release deliverables. So, for example, if your task is  
related to the File Upload component, please file it as a subtask of  

3. Mark the new and existing tasks that you'd like to work on this  
iteration with the correct label. In this case: iteration05

4. Provide estimates for your tasks. If you have any questions about  
the format for estimates, please see:


5. Come to the meeting with a sense of the prioritization amongst your  
tasks and with others.

If you have any questions or need a hand with your preparations, I'm  
happy to help.
