Today's meeting was mostly a progress report for the API project. Our new-found focus this week has resulted in a lot more commits, including several from new contributors which is fantastic. We are still looking to get more people involved and continue to try to create beginner level issues to facilitate this.
There are still a considerable number of API issues outstanding, although the vast majority of them are in progress by a developer. This week should see a flurry of PR activity! There are still some issues to be raised, so if you're still looking to get involved, keep an eye on the API backlog.
The structure of error responses from the API is an important consideration, and one that has not yet been addressed. We discussed this in some detail during the meeting, and an issue will be raised shortly to continue the discussion.
The remainder of the meeting was spent getting progress updates on the API issues which were assigned last week, and assigning more issues to developers. It's great to see some new names popping up to claim issues :) If you're interested in getting involved, please visit our IRC channel, come along to meetings, and don't be shy.
Next week we will do a full review of the API project, as well as plan another informal Google hangout for contributors.
What is this?
We hold a public development meeting pretty much every Tuesday at 5:30pm London time in the #ghost channel on freenode (note that the UK has just moved onto Daylight Savings Time, so the meeting is an hour earlier than it was previously). In this meeting we discuss progress, important issues, and what is and isn't on the Roadmap. It's a chance for everyone to get involved and have their say about where Ghost goes next.
Hope to see you at next week's meeting: Tuesday 29th April, 5:30pm London time.
Stay up to date with the latest Ghost news, tutorials and resources. All the best bits, delivered every Sunday.
