Announcement of Core Mergers 2023

Categories: Development, Community, TYPO3 CMS Created by Benni Mack
TYPO3 Core development depends on continuous contributions from the TYPO3 community, making the product better. Each year, an application and selection process adds new members to the team that shapes the future of TYPO3's Core.

In April 2023, we announced the call for Core Mergers. Today, I'm proud to welcome new and familiar faces to the team!

Component Mergers

Component mergers have a clear vision for one specific topic, and merge proposed changes that touch their area.

  • Backend User Experience: Andreas Nedbal, Annett Jähnichen, Benjamin Kott and Jasmina Ließmann
  • Testing Infrastructure and Testing Framework: Christian Kuhn, Stefan Bürk
  • CLI Integration & Composer Improvements: Helmut Hummel
  • SEO: Kevin Appelt
  • Documentation: Lina Wolf
  • Issue Tracking & Reporting: Riccardo De Contardi
  • Fluid Engine + Integration: Simon Praetorius teams up with Christian Kuhn and Stefan Bürk to move the Fluid templating engine to the next level.

Framework Mergers

Framework mergers will be reviewing and merging changes proposed by the community to the Core, ensuring that they adhere to our coding standards and common API development. Framework Mergers tackle all the parts of Core that don't fit into any specific area or component.

Oliver Hader and I are happy to continue working with everyone who re-applied, as well as those who joined our group for the first time, to build a better TYPO3 experience for everybody.

I would like to thank Ralf Zimmermann for his efforts in previous years.

Happy coding, reviewing, and merging!
