With week 49 almost behind us, we are entering the holiday season. Makes you wonder, will Santa Claus leave a present for the eZ Community? This week’s news focuses on earlier announcements by both eZ Engineering and the Community Board. But as always, we have some fun Tweets for you as well.

In my ‘Week in eZ’ I am covering news, coming from our bloggers within the community, social media, the eZ Community on Slack, events, and more. If you have any news or events to share, please contact me, so I can include it in upcoming posts.

 

News

This week in eZ #49

eZ Publish Community support

Let’s start with important news from eZ Engineering. André Rømcke has posted an update on community versions of eZ Publish, which will no longer receive eZ Support patches. “As we get ready to release the next generation of eZ software, our eZ Support team is moving its focus to eZ Platform and eZ Studio. While they’ll continue to support existing customers on eZ Publish Enterprise, they’ll stop working on the community versions of eZ Publish (5.x and earlier).”

As André shares in his post, eZ Engineering will try to handle incoming community contributions, but they need help from the community! Help is needed in reviewing pull request. If you are interested, read André’s post, and get in touch.

Platform weekly

Bertrand Dunogier is following in my footsteps, starting a weekly post, called Platform weekly. You can find his first post on share.ez.no. These Platform updates are “intended to give news, on a weekly basis, about the latest developments on Platform from a technical perspective.”

Update governance framework

Also posted this week on share.ez.no, is a draft update to the governance framework. This governance framework describes the role of the eZ Community Board, and how it governs the community. This draft will be open for feedback until the Board’s next meeting on December 16. We will then finalize this document, and continue with renewal of the Board.

Significant changes for this new draft include a focus on the community, instead of the eZ Publish Community Project releases. With this in mind, Board responsibilities are also evaluated, and aligned to this new goal. The new governance framework will also make the Board itself more open, in terms of its membership.

Some weekend reading:
