Product Dev Back to Ghost

Public Dev Meeting 28th May

This week's meeting was a shortened 'catchup' meeting held on Wednesday as we were unable to do a proper meeting on Tuesday.

Over the past week, I have been on a bit of a rampage on GitHub, trying to close as much stuff as I can, get the PR list back under one page (25 PRs) and attempting to reduce the open issues down as low as possible (aiming for ~200) to make things more manageable. After this, I'll start working on improving the roadmap, making it a bit clearer with milestones and deadlines fleshed out ready to discuss in next week's meeting.

There is now quite a bit of work going on towards shipping multi-user, as we're now far enough along with Ember to start on it and not everyone wants to work on Ember / frontend stuff. We hope to wrap up Ember and ship multi-user around the same sort of time as Ghost 0.5, hopefully pretty soon.

Two little bits of news: firstly, @pauladamdavis is now making a bit of a surge on Ghost-Ui. He has commit access and is pretty much taking the lead on that project. If there are any Ghost-Ui issues impeding the Ember migration project, please contact him for help. Secondly, @sebgie now has commit access to Ghost, he will be taking on a little bit more PR management, particularly whilst I am on holiday 6th-16th June.

There is still quite a lot of work outstanding on the Ember project, most notably that we need to complete the work to integrate Ember data so that the admin works with real blog data, and integrate all of the more complex bits and pieces around validation, progress, etc. In next weeks meeting, I hope to be able to set a firm deadline for when we will complete the work.

Full details:

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 (note that the UK has just moved onto Daylight Savings Time, so the meeting is an hour earlier than it was previously). 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 3rd June, 5:30pm London time.
