Process

  1. If you want to think about something ahead of prioritization, write fanfic and link to it in the future projects list. Expectation is not that people will read or respond immediately, but that it exists for later use.

  2. Prioritization of the list

  3. Fill out specs for projects that are prioritized — anything prioritized is fair game

  4. Have project kickoff call after spec is written (or async deadline)
