This will help us identify and prepare for any questions/topics ahead of the call. Topics or questions of discussion are open to anyone, developers or users, but we ask that these discussion points be limited to thematic QIIME 2 questions (e.g. feature proposal, plugin idea, etc.) — we will not be able to provide technical support during these calls.

I would like to discuss q2-feature-classifier. I filed an issue here that I think is essential to address for the next release, and @Nicholas_Bokulich mentioned that we might want to (at least temporarily) use classify-blast or classify-vsearch in the moving pictures tutorial instead of classify-sklearn, as we have a better understanding of the performance of the former two methods than the latter at the moment.

I’d like to discuss how we’re going to communicate our (new) internal Scrum process to the larger community (e.g. plugin developers not in the Caporaso lab) so that it’s clear what we’re working on in the lab, what we expect to be included in a release, and what we need help with.
