  1. Documentation

    Website tab for documentation is not up to date. Link to users guide or something that is updated frequently. Need to know if we can now create geometry, generate Title 24 and LEED documentation, to name a few items

  3. 3rd-party friendly build system and software refactor

    Problem: It is not clear for all developers how OpenStudio is deployed per each platform. Opportunities for refactoring are known but not explicitly tracked. "Design intent" is not explicit in all cases resulting in coherency in methods in, for example, ApplicationPathHelpers.

    Solution: Document deployment process and design intent in sufficient detail that others could begin executing a code refactor under guidance from the development team.

    Context: ported from GitHub: https://github.com/NREL/OpenStudio/issues/1405
