  11. 11. 30 October 2010 Copyright © 2010 Open Source Matters Inc. PLT Summit 2010PLT Summit 2010 • We talked a bit about 1.6. • But mostly we talked about the future. • We discussed and agreed our new development strategy. • We sketched out our vision for the next release. • We discussed a process for approving new features.

  14. 14. 30 October 2010 Copyright © 2010 Open Source Matters Inc. PLT Summit 2010PLT Summit 2010 • Release cycle is too long (2 to 3 years!). • Too many changes in each release. • Uncertainty about when a new release will be available. • Most development right now is focussed on bug-fixing, so... • There is a lack of excitement in the developer community. What's wrong with the current development process?
  15. 15. 30 October 2010 Copyright © 2010 Open Source Matters Inc. PLT Summit 2010PLT Summit 2010 http://developer.joomla.org/strategy.html • Time-based instead of scope-based releases. • Stable trunk, development in branches. • Only those features that are ready will be merged in to the trunk. • Decision on what goes in rests with the PLT.
  16. 16. 30 October 2010 Copyright © 2010 Open Source Matters Inc. PLT Summit 2010PLT Summit 2010 • New release every 6 months. • Every third release is Long-term Support. • More emphasis on testing. http://developer.joomla.org/strategy.html

  32. 32. 30 October 2010 Copyright © 2010 Open Source Matters Inc. eBay, San Jose, CaliforniaeBay, San Jose, California "Enterprises need to learn how to embrace open source. Open source is not about downloading free software and installing it. It is about contributing. It should be used for non-intellectual- property aspects of the company. Seventy percent to 80% of a company runs on standards, on products that are not the core of the business. Companies need to realize, if you can work with an open source community, contribute back, the sum of all moving parts is so much bigger than what you can ever do by yourself. We don’t want to own custom code." Oliver Ratzesberger Senior Director of Analytics Platform, eBay
