Condensing my previous post and other happenings into a shortlist.
- We cut out the really unused product modules immediately. This is ongoing and a consensus is forming around the imminent death of blog, dashboard, php, profile, shortcut, statistics and trigger.
- We find maintainers or do a quick refactor for the modules listed in the previous that stay. The goal here is the stabilize bleeding patients but nothing more. This seems to be ongoing, yesterday I saw a guy on IRC who was contemplating on taking the forum module maintainer hat.
- With the "kernel" team now free, we focus on reworking our "kernel" (don't call this a framework -- maybe later, maybe never) to something nice. This is ongoing with the Configuration Management and the Web Services initiative.
- Meanwhile, people rally around onramp profile (nee snowman). This seems to be a rather nice idea with a proper process: list of personas, user stories, specification before coding. The works. If this comes to be, we can cut more of the current product modules. This seems to be ongoing, there are people interested in this enough to give it a good name instead of a joke. This is something we definitely need help with and there are people who do these steps day in, day out, please head over to the group and participate.
