Summary 1 9


Minutes: Ivo explaining both options. Open discussion on both options, what challenges option two brings. Breaking changes is one of the important challenges when maintaining option two.

Option 2 could be hosted on the eZ System repo’s. Option 1 could be moved to the eZ Community repo.

Option 2 needs a name: ezplatform-bridge could be an option. Sylvain to check with marketing what we should not use.

Discussion around support on Option 2: eZ Platform and kernel would the the same as for the official eZ Platform. Legacy and the bridge would be the part where “best effort” would apply.

Communication: important, which version to use when, for what. Clearly define all options (eZ Publish, eZ Platform, and the to be named option 2).

2 Opening up contributions

Opening up contributions (to eZ Platform and community release): How, what, who?

Minutes: topic skipped

3 Community platform

Community platform; share, projects, what can we simplify/change? I sent an email (Mar 19, summary previous meeting) to all, and Ivo gave the following response on this topic:

- remove several blocks from the homepage of which moslty talk about legacy stuff (like learn box)

- add an intro box to the homepage to explain the current situation in few words as possible, use some part of the get-involved page

- link from the intro box to 2 pages: ezpublish5 and ezplatform to go into details about each and link to certain pages

- remove get-involved page, it is very rarely visited

- remove roadmap page, explain it in on the ezplatform and link to jira

Minutes: topic skipped
