Software Architecture & Strategy Team (Niels Braczek)

Talk Topics:

  1. Volunteers Portal: Which skills are needed for the different positions? We should provide a list of skills linked to (affiliate) places, where people can learn those skills.

    Advice: VET should provide a (MarkDown) template that can be filled by TLs and provide a list of possible tutorial sources.
  2. Discuss incentives for companies devoting time for Joomla in VET - a nice idea in principle, but we don't have sufficient financial power.

    Advice: VET should investigate possibilities for other than monetary incentives.

  1. For 3.9.23, we did a lot of testing in the areas of the security fixes within the last 48 hours before release. Still missed the bug - issue 31482
