Winter 2022 Telescope 3.0 - Seneca-CDOT/telescope Wiki

Winter 2022 - Telescope 3.0

The Seneca community develops and maintains the Telescope project. Over the past few years, this has included managing and shipping major releases 1.0 and 2.0 via the DPS911 and OSD700 course. During the Winter 2022 semester, we will continue this trend, as we work on shipping Telescope versions 2.5 through 3.0.


We will be doing a release roughly every two weeks on a Thursday:

  1. 2.5 Release Jan 20, 2022
  2. 2.6 Release Feb 3, 2022 - Planning
  3. 2.7 Release Feb 17, 2022
  4. 2.8 Release Mar 10, 2022
  5. 2.9 Release Mar 24, 2022
  6. 3.0-alpha Release Apr 7, 2022
  7. 3.0 Release Apr 21, 2022

Sheriff Schedule

Each week, two people are put on-call as Sheriff, overseeing the project's issues, PRs, CI, infrastructure, and leading meetings. A third backup Sheriff is also available in case of illness or other circumstances. See How to be a Sheriff.

Everyone on the team is required to take regular rotations as Sheriff and Backup, please sign-up and make sure every slot is filled.

The initial list of priorities, and areas of interest by person for Telescope 3.0 is also available.


A number of students have contributed significantly to Telescope's 1.0 and 2.0 releases, and are either still actively involved, or contribute sporadically. These people are a tremendous resource, since they know so much about the existing code (e.g., for questions, reviews, etc):
