General information about the project¶
The BLE (a German governmental agency) has got in contact with the TYPO3 Association as it wants to sponsor the development of TYPO3 in areas such as accessibility and usability. This is now settled, and we can start with the project right away.
The project is managed by Ingmar Schlecht (lead), Ben van ’t Ende, Oliver Hader and Benjamin Mack. In case of questions, you can contact any (or all) of them.
The overall project duration is from 1 July 2011 until 31 October 2011. However, individual packages have earlier deadlines, and we need to have everything finished on October 15th for leaving enough time for the approval process.
There are a couple of requirements to the developers working on the project on a paid basis. Those are documented here.
The coordnation team (Ingmar, Benni, Olly and Ben) is meeting daily at 11:00 CEST for short status calls. The protocols of those meetings can be found here.
