Software Architecture & Strategy Team (Niels Braczek)

  • Started an RFC called ‘Release Versioning’ last week to address the feature vs. bugfix question. Discussion had a good start, although there was no activity the last couple of days. Also, the scope seems to be widening, as discussion is about fx. backward compatibility, deprecation policy and other related areas. So suggestions for a better name (‘Development Strategy’ may be too big?) are welcome, as well as contributions to the discussion.

CMS Release Team (Sigrid Gramlinger)

  • We talked about Release Leads for next versions.
  • Next Joomla Magazine Team introduction is CMS Release Team
