As recent news announced, further development of TYPO3 CMS will focus on development through initiatives (read more). Initiatives consist of independently working teams, driving a specific research area or improvement forward. With initiatives it’s possible to simultaneously handle the development of several bigger topics spreading contribution over more people and therefor relieving the burden on mergers. Framework and component mergers as well as the strategy group have the task of coordinating and mentoring the development. Initiative topics will overlap and initiatives might profit from exchange between the teams. While the strategy group will foster this kind of exchanging in an ongoing effort, we decided to introduce a dedicated event, too: The TYPO3 Initiative Week - T3INIT19.
This is a companion discussion topic for the original entry at https://typo3.org/article/introducing-the-typo3-initiative-week-t3init19/
