- Quick post-sprint status recap
- Server info update
GitHub Repo: https://github.com/plone/ploneorg.core
Attendance: Christina, Victor, Coen, Lennard, Paul, Rob, Fulvio, Gil
- Plone.org fully migrated from Plone 4.something to Plone 5! Upgrade easier than anticipated!
- Final migration of all content done (including sprint info Christina & Kim worked on)
- New (production server) info: on agenda for the Board to discuss at next meeting (to fund server)
- Dev site to stay on old server, we’ll just have to deal with how slow it is
- Launch by Dec 1: yes, we can do it!
How can we develop locally and have content?
- Sensitive info (nothing major, just not for public consumption) will be removed until just before launch
- Designers & themers need some content to work with
- Be smart: don’t develop on a public machine and don’t change content workflow status
PAS plugin for GitHub being worked on, likely to be completed this week
”New to Plone” page discussion:
- something similar to https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/contribute/signup/, but what is the purpose of our page?
- Could make 2 pages:
- New to plone with demos, docs, etc
- Teams landing page (community landing page?): team info, how to get involved, etc.
- It’s ok to have multiple landing pages for different reasons
- This item is on Marketing/Communications team meeting scheduled Fri, 10/30; Christina will update issue with meeting outcomes (info needed before can create design)
Stats Discussion: what stats should be on profile pages?
- Twitter integrated
- community.plone.org stats being worked on
- could count # packages contributed to
- could show last 5 github commits
- could show last tweets, etc.
- Showing total Github contributions could exclude those who contribute but aren’t programmers, could be intimidating to new programmers/community members
- Idea for launch is to keep contribution stats general
- ex could do “last year” or “last month”
- Would be great (post-launch) to incorporate fun metrics like who deleted the most lines of codes (more thought & discussion to come later)
- Other stats like sprints, conferences attended, etc. will be visible with badges
Goals of the site:
- To show that there is a community around Plone
- Show that Plone is being actively developed all the time
- A medium to help cultivate and grow the community
- Ended by assigning unassigned issues in issue tracker
- Lots of minor problems likely to be resolved with upgrade to Plone 5, which is great because we’ll be able to close several issues!
