See Roundtable Meetings for a detailed description.


  1. Git another step forward
    1. Documentation
    2. Questions to be answered
      1. Should trunk and the main version branches (18.x, 19.x, 20.x, ...) be "unprotected" so that commits from known developers (those who passed the commit access ceremony) can be pushed there without pull/merge request at all?
      2. Should developers merge in Tiki branches / Only in their fork and wait for approval / Mix solution ?
      3. Should all developers be equal ? (trusted vs untrusted)
      4. Should all contributions be equal ? (non-risky vs risky / new feature)
      5. What about email notifications for work on Git branches?
    3. Sub-question
      1. Do we keep IRC or we move to XMPP (integration in Tiki)
