Recently a developer was asking a question in the group chat room wondering if anyone changed a component. I coached the dev privately to review the code change log in SVN. I also encouraged them to post back to the slack room once they have the answer.
They actually did review the log and found that the code change in question was a bug fix that actually busted a few other things. However, they did not follow that information up with the team in anyway.
It’s always courteous to follow up with the team if you’ve answered your own question. Who knows – you might save the team a ton of heartache down the road!
