Here's David J - Release Manager for 1.3!Published by Skenow on 2009/12/25 (3697 reads)
As discussed in our forums, a new leadership role has been established for ImpressCMS - that of Release Manager. The release manager will have the responsibility of leading the release from beginning to end, considering each feature request and making the final determination if it fits within the roadmap established for the release. No stranger to the community or to project management, David Janssens (fiammybe) will be filling the role of release manager for 1.3.
David will be working closely with Marc-Andre, the lead developer for 1.3. David will focus on the 'what' and Marc-Andre will focus on the 'how' of the 1.3 roadmap. A general overview of the upcoming release is found on our project site and the technical details are found on Trac. When asked about the release and his role, David responded
1.3 will be a release out of the ordinary, because contrary to the normal open source lifecycle, there will be no new functionality added.
...I think we all agree that this 'house cleaning' needs to be done to get the core slim and clean to prepare for the next few years of hacking and coding. It will be an interesting challenge, and I would be very happy to take on that responsibility
We welcome David in this role and look forward to a successful release!
