Public Dev Meeting 3rd June
It's been a short week this week, and also please note that next week there will not be a meeting. This week's meeting was mostly a very large and in depth catchup on all the various issues that are open in the Ember milestone.
There are ~48 open issues in the Ember milestone. At least a half of them are assigned and in progress, with a further 1/4 bugs and small related issues that will likely be resolved by one of the main issues. There are still a handful of unassigned open issues to grab and also no doubt countless small issues we've missed, and bits of cleanup or refactoring work that anyone is welcome to send us PRs for.
The Ghost Roadmap, and the milestones on GitHub have been updated with a new timeline, with an aim to ship Ghost 0.5 with multi-user support at the beginning of July. To that end, the aim is that all the currently open and assigned issues will have a PR in time for the next meeting in 2 weeks on 17th June. The following week will be spent wrapping up the final pieces of the Ember admin, which will close for PRs 23rd June.
We will then have one final week to focus on wrapping up the last pieces of Multi-User, which should be mostly complete by this time, with the Multi-User milestone closing to PRs on 1st July. At this point we will follow our standardrelease procedure, aiming to release the following week.
These timelines are incredibly ambitious, however it is already more than 2 months since our last release and we need to push forward and deliver something awesome to our users. We've recently gained a few new regular contributors, who are really helping us to push forward faster, so we are aiming high. I'm particularly excited about delivering the Ember admin, because of what it means in terms of delivering other features more quickly in future.
Wrapping up Ember
To help us get a bit of a booster on the Ember admin, we have @rjackson, a.k.a rwjblue on IRC, who is a member of the Ember core team helping us to get past some of the problems we've encountered. To that aim, he will be hosting a Google hangout on Wednesday at 5:30pm UK time, to go over some high level concepts and help shape some parts of the admin which are proving tricky. This is open to anyone who is or wants to work on the Ghost Ember admin.
Update: For details of what happened during the hangout see the IRC logs or @halfdan's write-up.
The full logs of the meeting are available from Slimer, our IRC bot (who is also on GitHub by the way!).
What is this?
We hold a public development meeting pretty much every Tuesday at 5:30pm London time in the #ghost channel on freenode. In this meeting we discuss progress, important issues, and what is and isn't on the Roadmap. It's a chance for everyone to get involved and have their say about where Ghost goes next.
Note: There will not be a meeting next week,. Hope to see you at the next meeting: Tuesday 17th June, 5:30pm UK time.
