1. Last Release Review

  • What worked well
  • What did not work
  • What needs to be improved
  • And… celebration - a virtual cheers! :-) 

Tobias confirmed that everything went well after the release. The RC was only published two days before release date, so there was not a lot of time for testing, but the team could still test successfully.

When we are testing, we will add the tested PHP version to the top of our column in the testing checksheet.

2. Automated Testing

Sigrid had a short meeting with Hannes to get an overview of automated testing.

We need to automate End User testing for CMS Release Team.

Sigrid will support the Automated Testing Team for creating test cases starting with October.


Workshop Meeting Friday afternoon October 1st 13:00 UTC

We will have a look at the following tools.

Codeception - prepared by Harald

iMacro - prepared by Sigrid

Selenium - prepared by Phil

Puppeteer - prepared by Sigrid - prepared by Stefan


3. RC Release Process

We have some ideas how to promote testing for release candidates. The process to inform more people should not take too much of our time resources.

Newsletter topic was discussed again, also the Joomla Country/Language Forums.

We still have no final decision/process.


Idea was also JUG Teams Newsletter - Phil/Jenn will talk


4. Documentation Session

With Mike from Docs Team - Saturday Sept 18.
Session will be recorded

5. Process for “failed” releases

We collected first ideas - Sigrid will create (done already) a document in Google Drive

Idea was also to research on how other software handles this.


Next CMS Release team meeting is scheduled for Wed. Oct. 06, 18:00 UTC
