The Maintenance Concept

After the launch of typo3.org we need to be able to guarantee 100% uptime for the site . The website needs to be bug-free (security issues and functional bugs) and should run on the latest current stable version of TYPO3 CMS.

New features will be implemented in a deployment process (the same that was used during the development timeline). In the future other websites like the association website will also be merged into the current concept.

During the relaunch project we found out that it is problematic to work on such a complex and important project based on voluntary work alone. We learned that it is impossible to run typo3.org on a pure voluntary basis.

Therefore it was decided that:

  • Agencies will be the backup for voluntary work
  • Most of the work will be done on a voluntary base (also in the future)
  • If a volunteer steps back – the agency will take over

Fields of Responsibility

Teams

Sprints

We will arrange several sprint meetings in order to achieve new releases. Besides the sprint meetings our team will continuously improve the functionality of the website and fix all urgent bugs.

Each sprint meeting will be publicly announced and everyone can apply to attend these sprint meetings.

Right now we are creating a sprint roadmap for 2012 and will announce the next sprints very soon.
