Today the Joomla! Extensions Directory (JED) team met at 2pm GMT via Glip to discuss our progress of current tasks.


In attendance: Jaz Parkyn, Anibal Sanchez, Hugh Douglas-Smith, Daniel Dubois, Johan Janssens, Claire Mandville, Dénes Székely, and Paul Franklin

TO-DO for the next month

  • A new JED Checker release is coming with updated rules for extension development and JED site.

  • Anibal is going to create a post about The new Joomla! Update System requirement and continue the campaign to inform our users.

  • Next announcements will be sent to all JED users.

  • Hugh is collaborating in a new review filtering algorithm.

  • Johan will be implementing NoCaptcha. Other bot detection and mitigation technologies are being considered.

  • Automated Security Analysis for PHP Code is under evaluation.

  • Jaz Parkyn is organising new Github repos: joomla-jed (JIRA replacement - public), jooma-jed-team (tasks and PM - private) and joomla-jed-dev (dev - private).

General Discussion

  • A new notification system has been implemented. On the 10th January, we released our new listing requirement - all new extensions must integrate Joomla Update Servers. All existing extensions that don't use update servers now have a popup when clicking on the Download link - so you might see some tickets about this. Before the notice can be removed you will need to verify the servers in the XML files and check the 'uses updater' checkbox. For more information:

  • The new Joomla! Update System requirement has been implemented
