We should have started this blog immediately after the release of beta 8. My apologies for the lack of communication recently. This year we'll be looking closer at our processes and formalising our organisation more. This is also one of the reasons it's been pretty quiet these past months.
As I pointed out in the release discussion for beta 8, we had a little setback due to temporary inactivity of one of our architects. I'm mentioning this role on purpose as it's fundamental in understanding our (currently informal) team structure. Nevertheless we are deciding how to move forward with a recent IE bug which is the only item blocking a release of beta 9.
Something I have been working on is a strategic document for Flarum that defines our vision, goals and lays out a plan for governance. This document holds the foundation for growing our team, ecosystem and software.
