Come join CiviCRM core team members Coleman, Eileen, Josh, Mathieu and Tim for our "sprint" event for contributors based in the centre of Manchester, UK.

There are no hard and fast requirements for attending a sprint, apart from a desire to work on improving CiviCRM in some way and the time to do it. The idea is that we can work on improving CiviCRM, have fun, network with other community members and increase your skills and knowledge at the same time. Having skills in specific areas like coding, documentation, writing tests, etc. is great but not a requirement.

Updated: Towards a more gender-sensitive German localisation of CiviCRM

Something that many of us love and appreciate about CiviCRM is that diversity and inclusion has a very high value for us as a community. That's why from time to time we deliberate how the language in and around CiviCRM can be made more inclusive and gender-sensitive. And sometimes there are very practical results, too – such as the gender self-identify extension, for example.

CiviCRM Community, Take Pause and Consider this Letter

2021-03-30 02:36

As you may be aware, CiviCRM was recently given an award for its incredible social impact by the Free Software Foundation. I think we can all agree that CiviCRM is amazing software! Likewise, I believe that we all recognize that our diversity in perspectives, nationalities, genders, text editors, etc. is vital to the health of both the software and the project.

I’m writing this blog post because now may be one of those times where, as a member of our diverse community, you may wish to express your individual views.

First of all, it’s been a huge privilege for me to be able to attend the Global Community Summit in Barcelona and all of us here agree that first and foremost we owe this to the amazing team at iXiam for organising a fantastic event!   Being new to the community, I was a little concerned that it might be a little too dev-centric but I needn’t have worried.

In my previous blogpost on the Community Council and Sociocracy 3.0 (S3) I told you that we are studying and applying S3 to our community processes. In today’s little story I will focus on two important concepts in S3: driver and domain. And we are dying to get your feedback!

First of all, let me explain one aspect of our growing appreciation of S3 for our community:

The Community Summit 2020

We had such plans for 2020 with a UK-based summit in wonderful Devon. Then the world turned upside down and we've all struggled to maintain the energy we had and drive that energy into some kind of virtual event that would give the community the same experience as our Summit/Sprint events do every October. So we need to own up to something finally, the idea of a 2020 Community Summit is a dream.

Since April 2020, the first elected CiviCRM Community Council is a fact and I am proud to be a part of it! We have had our first two digital meetings across a few continents. The first meeting was basically just getting to know each other and have an initial chat about what we think our role should be. And accepting that we are never going to make everyone happy, do whatever everyone thinks the Council should do and meet the diverse expectations across the community.

As part of the ongoing website upgrade, the CiviCRM extension directory has received a few upgrades. More precisely, we changed a few configurations and workflows on the page listing CiviCRM extensions and how new releases (extension updates) are regularly added to that directory.

Starting with the interface changes on the directory, we adjusted the filters to remove some redundancies:

Contributor Listing: Update

The transition of civicrm.org to Drupal 8 continues and, in the process, we’re taking time to clean up aspects of the site including revising its content and navigation, and reducing technical debt. One particular area that we’ve spent a great deal of time on involves the listing and recognition of both CiviCRM partners and contributors. Here are a few issues that touch on this process for you if you need some ‘light’ reading this weekend (in no particular order):

Community Ambassadors Needed

CiviCRM once had a list of ambassadors that provided a reference point for new potential users of CiviCRM, answering questions about the software, the community and how to get started. At a certain point, this went away and was never revised or replaced. We’re rekindling this idea now, albeit with a slightly different focus and in a different format.

In late January, the CiviCRM Core Team published its 2019 annual report which laid out its objectives for 2020. While we’ve managed the occasional update somewhat randomly in the past, we’d like to stick to a cadence of quarterly updates going forward in order to communicate progress on our priorities. This update provides an overview of the first quarter of 2020 as well as reflects on what we see happening for the remainder of the year.

Let’s start with priorities that we cited where we’ve made some headway.

Back in September 2019, we had announced a plan to upgrade the content management system (CMS) running the civicrm.org website, as well as plans to make civicrm.org available in many languages. Today I'm happy to announce that we have reached a major milestone: most of the static content, user logins, blogs and many CiviCRM forms are now being served from Drupal8.
