ReST migration for sysext manuals

  • Target 6.2
  • Migrate manuals to ReST in May or June
  • Get work done on them during T3DD13 (and beyond, of course)

Renaming of Documentation related projects

Check the notes here, section "forge"
Are they OK?
Should we really keep the extension keys in the project names? We do not use these keys anymore.
=> Maybe better change to Git Repository Names? Example:

extension key         Git repo name (part "CMS" each time to be added)     new project identifier
                      => For all of our git repos add "CMS"                =>  Identifier matching to the path of the Git repo
doc_core_tsref        Documentation/TYPO3CMS/Reference/Typoscript          documentation-typo3cms-reference-typoscript
  • redirects from the old URLs to the new ones would be great :-)


Reminder of priorities defined early 2013

  1. extensions page improvements (done)
  2. version switcher
  3. Solr indexing
  4. TER integration
  5. Flow application
  6. migration to ReST for 6.2 sysext manuals

Competitor workflow enabling documentation contributions

Proposal currently on hold. The main issue is about breaking the current workflow requiring Core changes and Documentation changes to be coupled.


  • Christopher updated the MediaWiki software of the TYPO3Wiki
  • The next mediawiki (major) update will break our extensions. More work will be needed for this update.

Next meeting
