New CLT Liaison Appointed: Anibal Sanchez


Anibal reported on the following items.


New listing specialists

These have been recruited and are nearly finished training, the listing queue will now begin to reduce due to this new manpower.

Template Migration.

Anibal requested access to the template repository, which has now been granted and is working on implementing the latest version of the official property template with help from Rowan and Mark Lee

Development Status.

New Elasticsearch

This is being worked on by George Wilson and initial results are very promising.

General Development

Anibal will put out a call for volunteers in order to help with the workload.

Joomla! Update System requirement (January 10th 2017)

This will no longer be a requirement for listing, as CLT understand that many extension developers use their own update system and making this a requirement would unfairly remove them from the JED.  The JED will simply display whether an extension uses the Joomla! update system or not.

Development Clone Sending Emails to Developers

It was reported that a clone copy of the JED was found to be sending erroneous emails to extension developers.  This has been addressed and the team has noted how important it is to ensure that all email triggers are disabled whilst working on a clone.

Twitter Account Blocking

It was reported that several Twitter accounts had been blocked by the JED Twitter account for no apparent reason.  This was found to have been done by a management bot by accident and this has now been resolved.
