Release Leads (Benjamin Trenkle, George Wilson, Tobias Zulauf, Harald Leithner)

* Release lead 4.0 (George Wilson):

  • Release Candidate candidate 3 due today.
  • We will call language string freeze after RC4 as there are low numbers of issues being created around the RC’s at the moment. There will be at absolute minimum an additional two RC’s beyond this to give TT’s a full month to work on packs uninterrupted.

* Release lead 3.10 (Tobias Zulauf):

  • Joomla 3.10.0-alpha8 to be released after this meeting.
  • Getting close to the final strings of the EOS plugin so we can get that into the PR soon.

  • 3.9.28 Release planned for 06.07.2021

Documentation Team (Mike Brandner)

Software Architecture & Strategy Team (Niels Braczek)

  • Continuing on tasks started, mostly elaborating architectural improvements. One major point is the requirement for event handlers (plugins) that can not be disabled.
  • Stats API is not sufficient to get data usable for identifying trends to estimate point of mass adoption or phasing out of parts of the tech stack.

CMS Release Team (Sigrid Gramlinger)

  • We had our first RC-Meeting on Wednesday after the last 4.0-RC. We will have another Wednesday after the next 4.0-RC (tomorrow June 30, 18 UTC).
  • 3.9-4.0 Migration Code Sprint did not take place, as there were not enough migration specific issues.
