What milestones represent

We use milestones in GitLab to represent Sprints. As such each milestone will have a start and an end date corresponding to the start and end of the associated sprint.

All work associated with a sprint should be added to a milestone. When addressing a GitLab issue make sure to add any related Merge Requests to the milestone.


Milestones have a board associated with them. We have a board for the current sprint which lists all the issues for that sprint.


Merge Requests are not listed on the board. If you want someone to pick up and review your Merge Request in good time, make sure it has a related issue which appears on the board.
