Other Business

Talk Topics:

  1. [TZ]: I would like to archive the old and unused joomla-projects projects as they are not updated nor used but generate regular reports from GitHub about outdated dependencies. They can always be reopened when needed.
  2. [TZ]: Do we want to backport combat issues in libs that we ship in 3.x but that are no longer maintained? Example: https://github.com/joomla/joomla-cms/issues/30569#issue-693193984
  3. [TZ]: What is the plan on translations for weblinks and search in the joomla-extension org? There should be a setup with crowdin right? When this is the case anyone can translate where needed and on any new translation crowdin can send a PR to update the files similar to the patchtester.
