Agenda / Topics to cover

1. CMS Maintenance Team - Liaison role and person responsible

Allon got into touch with Thomas Hunziker to be the maintainer liaison.

Marco suggests having a substitute in the group (Robert Deutz and Tobias Zulauf). May check with the other two listed above to see if they can contribute in the case that Thomas becomes too busy.

2. Milestone Discussion

Discussion of the Milestone completion date

End February for Milestone 1 which includes:

  • Drag and Drop

  • Improve UI

  • Image Editing

  • SVG Support (optional)

There may be a chance to complete Milestone 2 for 3.8?

Marco - “may be prudent to include Database Abstraction in the Joomla 3.8 release it would help making the process for migrating from 3.8 to 4 easier.”
