#37 Jul. 22nd, 20:00 CEST

Present: Nico, Gilles, Robin, Andre, Gaetano, Joe

This meeting

Re-organization of team-work

JIRA tracker created, thank you André. Successful test for everyone on the call.


Action[André/Nicolas][done]: simplify JIRA configuration, workflows.

André created a board, that can be configured and then used as a sprint-board between two meetings.


Topic: management of tasks

  • users are not supposed to assign tasks to others, but only to volunteer to take responsibility for tasks
  • it is desirable to be able to involve community users (non-CPB), in case anyone shows-up / volunteers to participate in some tasks
  • focus is not given to task deadline; if current sprint-based interface turns out to be too cumbersome,

Catch-up open tasks

4 vs. 5 spreadsheet

Jira issue: CPB-5

Update: issue blocked

Action[Andre]: André coordinating a short meeting (~30mins) between eZ Engineering, Gilles and other community members (including CPB members) to go through the spreadsheet.


API doc page

New design by Joe available at, open to pull-requests.

Jira issue: CPB-8

Idea: make a php version out of that page which self-updates, to avoid maintenance

Idea: integrate the feature comparison spreadsheet right in to this page

Next possible steps: make it a template.

Gilles: linking back to downloads for both CP and Enterprise versions would make it easier for users (a notice for Enterprise versions that only partners can get it)

Nico: due to composer usage, we might have to change naming scheme for CP versions, eg: 2013.06 instead of 2013.6

Decision: publish current version of Joe’s page (votes: 5/5); refine further and integrate with the page maintained by eZ Engineering later (there could be at least some branding added to it)



[gg]: publish current  version

[gg]: give to Joe list of all directories with sources

[Joe]: make the page dynamic

[??]: generate API docs for CP 2013.5 and EE 5.1



  • docs for EE5.1, 2013.5 and 2013.6 in the process of being generated
  • simplified shell scripts developed to make generation of docs for specific releases a simple process
  • previous “preview” homepage by gg currently online, as short-lived replacement for Joe’s version
  • Source code added again in Doxygen (only for Trunk version). Example: 
  • available
  • other actions being worked on


Available options:

  1. Keep two separate home-pages
  2. Pick one, ditch the other,
  3. Mix the two into one (keep the hostname on top of => set up a new git repo for easy collab

Decision: option 3


  • [Andre] Create GIT repository under ezsystems organization
  • [Gaetano] Push existing code + directory specs to the repo
  • [Joe] Rework the page a bit.

2013.7 build

A few roadblocks prevented Sylvain from finalizing the build last week. Tentative: this week.

Content Factory

Short Introduction by Nico

Opening-up the JIRA tracker to the public

Decision: Board needs to use it a bit for a few weeks to be sure to stick to this choice, and then open it up.


Picking up on CPB-4, will ask on our mailing list for ideas/input for nurturing and growth of the Diff Squad.


Having a catalogue of sites built on Community version would be a boon

[gg] hand-curated catalogs take a lot of time

[gg] inviting partners to submit to this is easy, but sites managed by customers will most likely not submit by themselves as they see little value / have little time

[Joe] taking existing info from partner data and laying it out on a new pagge could be a good 1st step

Next step: make it a task :-)

Next meeting
