Hello community, I am delighted to have been appointed as the Platform 2.3 release manager and happy to announce the already commenced process leading to the release. You don’t want to miss out being part of the contribution to this process, so feel free to volunteer in any of the areas below

  • Developer
  • Point of contact
  • Testing
  • Documentation
  • Advise

There are a couple of issues that need to be fixed including those associated with the bundled modules. These need to be resolved as early as possible so there is enough time for testing before the final release. I’m therefore inviting the community to contribute to this achievement.

Do you want to roll through the dev stages? From the road map are some nice starters to contribute to.

Thanks to the @devs who are already making this a reality. :slightly_smiling_face:

Best regards

@ruhanga, it looks like feature Number three doesn’t match the description ticket attached to it.

Sure @mozzy, thank you very much for pointing out this. I’m going to update this wiki page.

I would also like to welcome the community to suggest more desired features and bug fixes for platform 2.3. Thank you.

@ruhanga I will try to not forget, but if I do please don’t hesitate to remind me to document the wiki about the support for alternate authentication schemes.

@ruhanga When will you have your first Release meeting ?

(Nathan Ruhanga) #10

Thank you @c.antwi, I am designing a schedule for the meetings around the release process that will take place atleast every once a week. Since this has’t been part of the recent past experiences of release managers, I will update our events calendar with effect from next week to reflect these meetings so community input can be leveraged as much as possible towards the final release.

Please also note that release process discussions have a time slot during the Office Hours on Wednesday 3:00pm - 5:00pm EAT (12pm - 2pm UTC). You are welcome as well to join every week at that time.
