Hello Foswiki community,
Time for an overdue update of the Foswiki project. Read on for notes on the Foswiki Association meetings, the upcoming Foswiki 1.2 release, Foswiki Translations, the Foswiki Task Teams, and the Foswiki infrastructure and GitHub migration.
The Foswiki association held its Fifth General Assembly on .17th May 2014. OliverKrueger and CrawfordCurrie have stepped down from the board. GeorgeClark was reelected as a board member. LynnwoodBrown and JulianLevens were elected into the board. All three accepted their election. The "new" board consists of: PaulHarvey, MichaelDaum, LynnwoodBrown, JulianLevens and GeorgeClark.
The Board of Directors met on 23rd May 2014. LynnwoodBrown was elected as Chairman, and JulianLevens as treasurer.
The complete minutes of both meetings can be found at: FifthGeneralAssemblyMinutes and AssociationBoardMinutes20140523
We are beginning the release process for Foswiki 1.2 and wanted to pass along the news. I've agreed to serve as the Release Manager for Foswiki 1.2. There has been a lot of excellent work done on Foswiki 1.2, and it's time to get it out. See Development.ReleasePlan for details of what's in the release.
We will be starting regular release meetings to drive forward the release process. We are still in the early stages of picking a schedule for the meetings. Given the time zones involved it appears that a weekday around 1200Z seems to be mostly waking hours for many of our developers. Release meetings will be held in the #foswiki channel on IRC, and we'll start off with bi-weekly meetings. Meetings will be limited to 1 hour if possible.
If you have any opinions regarding the proposed schedule, please speak up! Everyone is welcome to participate in the release process. Planned agenda for the meetings:
In the meantime if you have a favorite task that has not seen
much activity, please mark it urgent so it bubbles up to the top
of the development effort.
We've established a new email list for the translators: [hidden email]. We will use this new email list to keep the translators up to date with the efforts. You can subscribe here: https://lists.sourceforge.net/lists/listinfo/foswiki-translations. Please pass along this information to anyone else in your organizations who might be willing to help in keeping Foswiki translations current.
In the annual meeting, the Foswiki Association decided to retire several of our Task Teams. The Translation team is being split into the Infrastructure and Release task teams. Translation is integral to each new Foswiki release. You can see the current and past team information here: http://foswiki.org/Community/TaskTeam If you can help with any of the teams, please let us know:
And last but not least, we have some critical decisions to make regarding the foswiki infrastructure:
