Why is this a symptom?

This symptom refers to a consistently high level of activity on weekends, indicating that team members are working outside of regular work hours. This could be due to pressure to meet deadlines, an excessively demanding workload, or a lack of support from management. High weekend activity can lead to burnout, reduced productivity, and decreased job satisfaction.
If team members have coding and review activities over the weekend, it can be considered a symptom of the development process.
