  9. 9. Roadmap card vs. JIRA states: mapping Roadmap Card JIRA equivalent Meaning Concept Drafting Strategic direction and topic identified to have further planning, before resourcing and prioritization decision can be made. Preliminary JIRA/ blueprints and artifacts may exist but they are being drafted. Forecast date is for rough target want to aim for. Approved Drafting The TSC has reviewed the concept and has prioritized the EPIC with timescale and resource limits. Roadmap cards that need to be associated with the Approved Concept EPIC can proceed at the engineering/OPSCOM review level. Planning Planning Planning has been done for a task, JIRA card/Blueprints exist and resource estimates and gating dependencies are known. Owner team has been identified and TSC agreed prioritization has been secured. Some preliminary development maybe in progress. Forecast date may change based on when dependencies are met. Development Engineering Engineering teams are actively working on the task. Expectation is that resources are available and dependencies have been met and forecast date reflects high confidence. Released Delivered Work item has been made available to target audience (Members or Public) and all associated artifacts are updated to reflect status. (JIRA cards, Blueprints, etc. have the correct status). see:
