Hi, this a call for comments about setting up a new foundation (not a CIC, not a real foundation), but to promote better what the Flowpackers are doing, …
This team maintains high quality package for Flow and Neos, like the ElasticSearch integration, JobQueue, …
I’m part of them and mainly working on ElasticSearch currently. I want to improve communication & support for Flowpackers, so my plans are the following:
- Quick Start a new landing page that showcase the current Packages et Team members
- A call for Stargazers
- Create an OpenCollective to support the team
This is proposal for a new design for the landing page.
Call for Stargazers
It’s really important for the team to have an idea of who use the differents packages, so if you are a user, please go to github and start the repository you use / love / support, …
TLDR: OpenCollective require a minimum of 100 stars to create a collection, so don’t be shy a show use your love (or not)
Some packages, like the ElasticSearch ContentRepository Adapter, need a lots of love to keep in sync with the differents versions of Neos and ElasticSearch, so we have currently 4 running version for this package, and we support Elastic 1.x, 2.x, 5.x (upcoming). Like every opensource project, the development is driven by passion and love, sometimes sponsored by client work, sometimes by family times, … It can be really nice to have some budget for maintenance, documentation and coding tasks, no real plan how we will use the money. But one thing is sure, we need transparency, so OpenCollective feel like a good solution.
Please add your comments bellow, all ideas are welcome, …
