2015 was a year full of progress for eZ, and with the recent release of eZ Platform, we’ve opened the door for an exciting 2016 for the eZ community.
Since 2011, the eZ Publish Community Project Board, made up of members from eZ and several eZ partners and customers, led the eZ Publish community. Now that eZ is putting its focus on our new platform, the Board has decided to update the way it works, starting by simplifying its name to the “eZ Community Board”. An update on the eZ Community Board’s mission and rules is available at http://share.ez.no/blogs/community-project-board/draft-updated-governance-framework
To put it in a few words, the eZ Community Board will be simpler and more open than ever before. The Board will help coordinate and drive all initiatives in regards to the development and growth of the eZ community, and especially the most fundamental part of it: collaboration on the development of eZ Platform.
On February 17th, the eZ Publish Community Project Board will vote on the permanent members for the new eZ Community Board. The new eZ Community Board will be composed of 5 permanent members and as many additional participant as the Board wants.
Nominations are currently open for the eZ Community Board and will be closing February 17th in the morning. To apply, simply comment at the bottom of this post!
