Public Dev Meeting 9th September


We kept this week's meeting super-short, due to a timing clash with a certain event in Cupertino where more interesting announcements were being made ;)

The introduction of the Core Team last week has had a real positive impact on the project as we're no longer dependent on me for progress. This means I don't have to spend quite so much time on GitHub and have a little more time to focus on bigger picture things like Ghost's memory usage, and long term planning.

This week however, I am on a mission to reduce the PR list back down to as few open items as possible. I'm also working on getting a better understanding of Ghost's memory usage, and seeing if we can put together some tooling so that we have memory usage information as part of our build.

Toward 0.5.2

We've now got open PRs for all the user interface issues which prevent us from doing a release. Once those are merged, there will be some minor items to clean up, but nothing release blocking.

In addition, there are a number of feature PRs that have been merged, or which will hopefully get merged this week, and a few more which should be relatively quick to cross off. This means that we will be able to do a release next week, although we may hold it an extra week to cram in some extra awesome.

An update on Apps

Since we shifted our focus to the API, Ember, and then Multi-User, the Apps project has had almost no movement. Over the next couple of weeks, the open issues for the App project are going to get a review and an overhaul, to make them more independent and easier to pick up. We'll then continue to work on apps behind a config flag, until we're confident we have a usable toolkit.

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. 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 16th September, 5:30pm London time.
