TYPO3 Community in April 2011

Tue. 7th June, 2011

After the Berlin Code Sprint in March the version control system for V4 was changed from SVN to GIT. A webbased frontend interface (Gerrit) is available onhttp://review.typo3.org. The V4 core team definitely needs to get used to the new system. The number of contributions has dropped significantly. Documentation on GIT can be found in the TYPO3 WIKI (http://wiki.typo3.org/Git). Together with folks from the current release team we are investigating what can be done to improve the situation. One option is posting from Gerrit to the core mailing list. When a patch is attached to a bug report or a bug status changes, that could generate an automatic email to the core mailing list to inform the community that a fix has been made available.
