Results of the Core development merger applications in 2020

Categories: Development Created by Benni Mack
People have applied, and have been selected. Welcome some old and new people for help shaping TYPO3 Core.

Every year, we're heading for a new round of people responsible for merging code into TYPO3 Core's code basis.

Today, I’m proud to announce the people behind future Core development:

Component Mergers

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

Component Responsible person
Extbase & Plugin API Alexander Schnitzler
CLI Integration Helmut Hummel
Fluid + Performance/Caching Claus Due
Persistence & Database Manuel Selbach
Issue Reporting & Triage Riccardo De Contardi
SEO Richard Haeser
Dashboard Richard Haeser
Tests & Testing Framework Anja Leichsenring
Content Import & Export API Tobi Kretschmann
Documentation Daniel Siepmann

Framework Mergers

Framework mergers will be reviewing and merging your proposed changes to the core, if they fit our coding standards and common API development - they tackle all the other parts of Core that aren't exactly fitting into a specific area or component:

  • Andreas Fernandez
  • Benjamin Franzke
  • Christian Eßl
  • Daniel Goerz
  • Frank Nägler
  • Georg Ringer
  • Helmut Hummel

The TYPO3 Product Team, consisting of Susanne Moog, Oliver Hader and Tymoteusz Motylewski, and myself are happy to continue with people who re-applied and who joined our group the first time - building a better TYPO3 experience for everybody in the future.

At this point I would like to thank Arno Schoon, Daniel Sattler, Josef Glatz and Ralf Zimmermann for their efforts in the last 12 months.

Happy coding, reviewing and merging!

FYI: For those who want to take on responsibility: The next merger application phase will start March 2021. Until then, keep handing patches, join initiatives and support us by getting our review and issue queue down.
