Elected Team Lead for a one year term: Niels Braczek.

2 Contribution Metrics

In order to improve the retention and the recognition of our volunteers, the Volunteers Engagement Program (VEP) was started. One tool the VEP team is thinking of, is to measure engagement. Niels has joined the team to design a system to gather the contributions in the different channels. He has started with the development of a StackExchange connector that will report Joomla related reputation changes. The profile page on the Volunteers Portal already provides fields for your StackExchange ids (please add them soon).

If you’re interested in participating in the development of this and other connectors, please reach out to Niels or Yves.

3 PR Priority List

#18471 [com_menus] - fix php warning

#18166 [microdata] - worstRating should be 1

#18167 aggregateRating microdata

#17856 Phase out deprecated `$php_errormsg` variable and `track_errors` use in HTTP and Language packages

#18483 [postgresql] - schema change rework

Niels talked to Anibal, he's got a tool to schedule (and programmatically create) tweets. It is possible to build something that takes this list, and creates tweets for each entry, and sends them (if still open). Nicola volunteered to take care of this.

4 Miscellaneous

Organize a Bug Fix sprint

The team members agreed to write up (in a Google Doc) their thoughts and ideas about the organisation of

  1. a (global) PBF - When can we do it? What do we expect? How can we guide? How can we assure that knowledgeable people are around all the time to support the participants? How do we get people (JUGs) to join?

  2. a real sprint - When? Where? Who should attend?

  3. participation in 3rd party events like hacktoberfest - Does it make sense? What's needed?

until the end of the month, so the team can start reading and discussing and make a decision in the next meeting.

5 Volunteers Portal Reminder

Please add your address on the Volunteers Portal, if you haven’t done that yet. It is a legal requirement for voting members.

This is the last reminder. Members without their address on the Volunteers Portal will be moved to Contributor state at the end of this month.

6 Next Meeting

Regular team meeting each month on the 3rd Friday at 19:00 UTC on Glip.

Next time Friday, Mar, 16th on Glip.
