I would like to thank all the companies and sprint organizers who made all this work possible. I would like to thank:
- Fourdigits for hosting amazing sprint about which I already blogged.
- Timo Stollenwerk for organizing Cathedral sprint hosted by GFU Cyrus AG.
- Syslab and Starzel for organizing Beer&Wine sprint.
Basically I just returned from Munich and while I really want to finish this report I needed some some time to catch some sleep (slept 20h in a row) and then again wind started so I "had" to hit the waves. Anyway lets see what I've prepared for you.
I don't want to talk what all was achieved at above mentioned sprints, but I would like to give you deep insight about what needs to be done in order to get Plone 5 out. Introduction to Mockup recorded
At each sprint I gave introductions and luckily at the last one we even recorded it. My English haven't improved a bit, so please native English speakers don't cry while I torture your language.
When will Plone 5 be ready?
I thought that with projects like plone.app.widgets and wildcard.foldercontents we would see more contributions. Maybe I'm just impatient and this is still to come, but I want Plone 5 to be out this year :).
Planning your next project?
Just by using above mentioned project, which already reached some level of stability, you can indirectly help test future Plone 5 code. Yes there are probably bugs to be fixed, but you're not going to be alone. At least I'm going to help fix as many as I can bugs or at least point/help your developers solve it faster/easier.
And my offer still stands. If you or your company needs introduction to Mockup ping me and I'll make sure you get that afternoon session to get you started. All I want in return is commits to Mockup in Plone 5 direction.
So Rok, what needs to be done?
In short: A-fucking-lot!
For next release of `plone.app.widgets`_ we need:
- finish upload pattern for tinymce
- use tinymce translations (currently only English is supported)
Most exciting tickets for plone 5 are:
- finish last bits of toolbar
- use querystring pattern for search and livesearch
- replace select2 pattern with selectivize
- many improvements needed for modal
And there is more. Best way is to get in touch with me on irc and i'll get you the ticket of your dream :) And here is a link to Trello where I try to keep todo what needs to be done.
