Upcoming Agenda

  • Settle down patch submitting workflow alsroot 07:59, 25 October 2010 (EDT)
  • Requirement to use sugar-lint (or so) in git pre-commit. alsroot 07:59, 25 October 2010 (EDT)
  • Increase a level of trust within core team, make patch reviewing workflow more clear:
    • Any submitter, to particular core project, might be a reviewer (we either should trust all these people or drop them from committer list) alsroot 07:59, 25 October 2010 (EDT)
    • To accept regular (reviewer decides are patches regular or not, of course better to discuss it with other committers if there are doubts) patches, only one reviewer is needed alsroot 07:59, 25 October 2010 (EDT)
    • Not regular patches should be formed in Features. These patches might take several tens of K. This is by design that it is hard not only to develop but to review as well and should involve several committers for reasonable amount of time. alsroot 09:28, 25 October 2010 (EDT)
  • officially dropping support for 0.86? (e.g. #1838)
    • do we need to discuss thing like that on Development Team meeting, is it more appropriate task for Deployment and Platform teams? alsroot 07:59, 25 October 2010 (EDT)


  • Quick update about what we have been working on and eventually the problems we have run into.
  • Discussion about the implementation details of tickets we are planning to work on. Figure out how to split up the work and who should be owning the various parts.
  • Questions from activity authors about specific aspects of the platform and more in general on how to better integrate their activity in Sugar. Report about problems they run into.
  • Help out new contributors to figure out where to start. Point out the tickets we need help with, discuss with them the implementation.


The meeting is mainly targeted to Sugar core and activity developers, but everyone interested is welcome to join. It's primary purpose is to try to open the development up a bit, make it more transparent and allow the community to participate more easily. For when to join see 'When and Where'.

How to add topics

You can add the topics that you want to discuss during the week to the topics section for the meeting. They will be collected during the week and send out in the meeting announcement on Thursday morning.
