Date: 15th May 2018

Time: 7:00 (UTC)

The meeting was attended by Anurag Kumar, Sandra Decoux, Allon Moritz, Astrid Günther

 

Agenda

Phase: 2  According to my proposal

  • Discussing a mechanism to find correct core files which were updated in Joomla update where override exists.

 

Discussing the mechanism in detail :

We discussed the mechanism in detail for :

  • Override
  • Alternative Layout
  • JLayout

 

While discussing the mechanism of each type override we found that we have some sort of problems for finding the correct core file of Alternative Layout because in this type we change the name of the file we want and do our changes. Which makes difficult to find correct core files.

So, we decided to do this part at the end of the project if we have a time.

We only support diff view of these overrides shown below.

And this algorithm is going to implement in

administrator/components/com_templates/Model/TemplateModel.php

 

Next,  part of Phase 2:  Implementation of the decided mechanism.

 

Reviewing timeline

The timeline of Anurag proposal is up to date.
