Team Organization: Llewellyn van der Merwe, Jaz Parkyn

  • Llewellyn was elected as Team Lead for another term.
  • Jaz fortunately agreed to stand as Assistant Team Lead again.
  • Need clarity on the rules of the JED extension listings, so the review and voting on the updated documents internally is urgent.

Extension Listings: Tom van der Laan, Oh Martin, Jeroen Moolenschot

  • When to check “ext. Specific addon” and when to select a “parent” extension.
  • The naming conventions and when what rule applies is unclear.
  • Also for extension owners what rules do we enforce on them when it comes to plugin naming. There are some edge cases that are not very clear.
  • We need to have the internal document reviewed and finalized.
  • When we have that done, we use that as our basis to update the documentation on github and also the documentation in the knowledge base of the JED itself.
  • We should also expand the documentation about system naming so it’s more clear for us and the developers also.
  • All extension listing rules must be applicable to old and new listings to avoid partiality.

JED Extensions: Llewellyn van der Merwe, Denis Ryabov

JED Extension Checker [J3]

  • We need a set of edgecase extensions as testing subjects to iron out false positives.
  • Working on PHP syntax validation
  • Would like to give information to developers of depreciated methods and classes.
