Public Dev Meeting 21st October


This week we have successfully shipped Ghost 0.5.3, whoop! Please see the release blog post for more details on that.

In the meeting we introduced a minor update to our workflow, where we now have 3 milestones on GitHub, which roughly corrolate to the public roadmap:

  • Current Backlog - which contains ~10 high priority items that are currently being worked towards or are very much wanted for the next release
  • Next Backlog - other lower priority issues which are ready to be worked on and free to pickup
  • Future Backlog - issues which aren't ready to be worked on yet.

We placed 9 items into the Current Backlog for now - we want to keep it around ~10 and as features are completed, we'll add in bugs or amendments. This effectively acts like a monthly sprint with the aim being to release new features and refill the backlog every 4 weeks or so.

There are 2 items in the Current Backlog, #4262 and #4263 which need a champion to work on them. They are both updates to the API needed to ship important features. We'd love to see a new contributor come along and give us a hand with these!

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.

Hope to see you at next week's meeting: Tuesday 28th October, 5:30pm London time.
