Ozzie Rules Blogging : 3 More of the Rosario Specifications posted

Pretty cool! I like the fact that they (Microsoft) are actually showing us their specs! That’s just awesome! Charles asked for feedback on whether we wanted to see more spec like this or not; my answer is a simple yes. It’s awesome to see how Microsoft does this and to see what you guys are thinking. How will VSTS/TFS look/feel/act in the near future? All good stuff!

As for the features; The bug submission feature doesn’t really attract me all that much, but it looks like a nice feature though. The linking spec was just too much for me, I lost track after like 3 minutes of reading. Looking forward to a new drop of Rosario CTPs to test though. The e-mail feature looks nice, especially when paired with TSWA. Not sure how I feel about the requirement to use Outlook though… Could this be done in a more open fashion?

Something just dawned on me; why aren’t WI queries available as RSS feeds? That would be an awesome feature!

Teams WIT Tools : FAQ #7: Can I combine a list of valid TFS users and a fixed list to present as an option for an “Assigned To” field?

We should probably add “Testers” and “Devs” to our list. That way we don’t have to know/care about where to send items, just that some dev/test person will pick it up. Add some notification magic and you can make sure that the correct people are notified when they should. Easy does it!
