In September 2022 the RA SIG agreed to talk about how to assist POs in their work. Julie Bickle initiated this group and led it for several meetings, teaching on how o create features and enriching existing issues with stories.

Idea for the PO assistance group from the notes:
As there is a lack of POs for RA, Andrea asks is there something we could do to try to move things forward
Julie: there is also a huge backlog because there is also a lack of developers and features turned out to be more complicated
Julie hosted a Wolfcon session on recruiting new POs and there is the idea of PO assistance, like helping with documentation and testing or consider everything necessary for stories
there is a list of needs here: Product Owners
writing stories is the hardest and also means of communicatin with the dev teams
unlike in the other SIGs, there isn't a lead PO for RA - that has to be a full time job, we feel like we are losing advocacy for RA issues
Thomas: could the SIG take over ownership for a feature?
suggestion: we form a subgroup acting as a partial PO collective, choose a feature as an example and Julie is going to lead us through the PO work process
possible features: 3-part item state (too complex for a start), notices for actual cost (Julie needs this to get ready and can adapt it to other notice features), or something that doesn't have a PO right now?, new notice schedule for recalled items
next Monday Julie can talk us through a feature's life cycle and we call for volunteers
