CMS Release Team Meeting March 17, 2021
Wed, March 17, 2021, UTC 18:00
Duration: 60 min
Sigrid Gramlinger (Team Leader), Jenn Gress, Philip Walton, Rachel Walraven, Tobias Zulauf (3.10 Release Lead)
1. Joomla 4.0
George has asked for testing of the following issues. We shortly talked about them, what and how to test.
[4.0] Migrate data for repeatable fields
[4.0] Re-Implementing FTP-layer during CMS installation
2. Joomla 3.10
Tobias asked for testing the Pre-Upgrade Compatibility Check on complex environments.
3. EOS Plugin
Jenn and Rachel had provided us with two versions of suggestions for the plugin messages. We discussed the balance of Marketing and technical messages.
Rachel will work on the next draft of messages this week. We will have about 6 returning messages for the first weeks. We will have links to marketing articles and to the pre-update check, as well as to the documentation about planning and processing a migration.
Philip and Tobias will publish the plugin without a date for the release. For testing purposes, there is a date field in the plugin options to simulate different weeks/stages of support time. This field will be removed before final merging.
4. Testing check component
Sigrid gave some information about the current status of the com_release_checking component. There needs to be some more concept and we might wait for Joomla 4 to have the component there. Then we will proceed with more functionality.
Next meeting scheduled for Wed April, 14th 18:00 UTC. (beware of Daylight Saving changes!)
