Product Dev Back to Ghost

Public Dev Meeting 21st October

pulse

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.
