So it has been quiet for the last two months. Only some small changes have been made to the code. But before going into this years plans I first want to thank all the contributors from last year: yoavf, Secretmapper, vanillalounge, nacin, nbachiyski, DJPaul, koke, dimadin, juanramondiaz, wonderboymusic, stuwest, extendwings, Nao, ocean90, knome, joostdevalk, waclawjacek, cfoellmann, ramiy, hew. And that is without mentioning the people who submitted still waiting patches and tickets. It was a good year where great improvements where made.
So for this year already quite some tickets and patches have been created and I will try to review this month. There will be three focus topics for this year which are increasing contributions, build a new default theme and rebuild part of core (to increase performance).
To increase the amount of contributors we will try to be more proactive when tickets, patches and issues are raised so people feel more connected to the project. Also from March there will be a weekly meeting where we can sync planning and work on new ideas. currently I’m thinking to do this meeting on Thursdays at 15:00 UTC. If you have suggestions then please let my know. I will create blog posts for the other two topics.
As last, from this point on I will be actively leading the project. Due to the fact that we have active contributors now, it also means that my role need to be active instead of committing things that I like to work on. Also GlotPress has become more important for open source projects and there is a lot of things that could increase the usability of GlotPress.
