Release Dates


1. Joomla 3.9.24
Harald reports about the next release, RC probably on Dec 29. If there will be some security fixes, we will plan extra time for testing.

2. Plugin for "End of support 3.10"
Discussion when the EOS plugin should be published. There will be also a post-installation message for information on upgrade. Proposal that we should learn from the experience with 2.5
The plugin will ship with 3.10 and activate it on a certain date. The exact process needs to be agreed on. Tobias will arrange a meeting.

3. Testing results in component
Short introduction - needs usability improvement to save us time. For the next release we will still work with the spreadsheet.

4. Status of (non-)active team members
Please check your status here:
Sigrid will update the volunteers portal after the next release.

5. How the team works when testing
Information for new team members and for documentation
Release test documentation is in the official documentation:

6. Tester profiles and testing environments available
We want to collect profiles of testers, i.e. multi-lingual sites, complex users setups, online-shops, 3rd party components, template frameworks, php versions, joomla versions ...
Sigrid will create a spreadsheet where everybody can provide the testing areas.

7. Regular Team meetings
Regular meetings on Wednesdays at 16:00 UTC
Next meeting: January 20, 2021, 16:00 UTC

8. Happy Holidays
