July 2019 Meeting of the CMS Release Team
29th July 2019 6 pm UTC
Hervé Boinnard, George Wilson, Sandra Decoux, Harald Leithner, Stefan Wendhausen, Sigrid Gramlinger, Phil Walton
Unable to make it:
With the problems surrounding joomla 3.9.9 it was decided to meet and see what could be done to cover a wider and more reliable testing.
Items outlined and discussed
- Using Sheet to mark against
- Dividing up the areas of testing
- Continuing to test real sites not just the base install
- Removal of members if then do not partake in testing
The use of a sheet to record testing seemed to be working
It was agreed to split the testing process up into areas and to assign the areas to people so that there are specific areas tested by specific people. Ideally 2 people testing each area. Areas would be custom fields, media manager, multi-language
Harald reminded us that we need to be testing complex real life sites and not vanilla basic joomla sites
We discussed the removal of members of the team if they were not active. This was talked through and we moved from a release based trigger to a time period, we settled on 6 months.
It was agreed that this would make recruitment easier as people would be able to target specific interest areas. It was agreed to advertise for more volenteers in specific areas of testing and to make the process as simple as possible
Meeting finished at 6.40 pm
