(uncomplete list; please improve)

  • SWOT analysis was reviewed, and some options discussed.
    • Since there was some sort of agreement that it would be interesting to explore how to implement the "opportunity" listed to offer free tiki site for new admins (reusing code and experience from show.t.o linked to dev.t.o), Xavi indicated that he would explore that option further, and that he had already started to schedule online mettings with amette and jyhem about it. Nelson offered some economic support if that meant at som epoint solving some critical factor to get a test going.
  • Nelson agreed to see Roles and Teams in Tiki as one of top priority topics to facilitate that new people can join the community in effective ways.
  • ...
  • Nelson reported that in order to have Teams in Tiki work effectively as organic groups, some Data Channels of Nelson's company can be reused into Tiki's main code base (through workspace UI or by other means) to have better Organic Group behavior at least in Tiki14.
  • Some discussion was held about the Profiles Wizard and a proposal of refactoring started, to follow the discussion in the previous Webinars about this topic. Xavi informed that will perform the refactoring based on this idea as a starting point within the next days.
  • Tiki13 is now being prepared for the release. Once Tiki 12.1 is released in the week of Tiki 28 Apr 2014, we are then ready to create the 13.x branch, and then the first alpha for Tiki 13 can be released shortly after this branching, and aim is to have final release by second week of June. The release coordinators are Bernard Sfez and Nelson Ko.
