  • We need an auto deployment path of the CMS in the Docker world.
  • Images were updated to v4.1.3 and v3.10.9

Documentation Team (Mike Brandner)

  • This article might be useful for the documentation of the Two Factor Authentication, either linked or partially copied (read: taken as inspiration).

Software Architecture & Strategy Team (Niels Braczek)

  • Investigating possible approaches for extended composer support.

CMS Release Team (Sigrid Gramlinger)

  • For new features, often user documentation is missing. This makes it sometimes difficult for testing, for marketing, for documentation… We had the idea that all new features could have a short video introduction by the contributor or some other person involved in the feature development. This could be just a recorded meeting with a team member of documentation or release team (i.e.) where features and behaviour are explained. The video might take only a few minutes. Sigrid and the team will try this with at least one new feature in 4.2 and evaluate.
  • We are discussing our team role.

Finalised Motions

  • Motion “PROD2022/002 - Captive page for login” passed
