h3. General

Since the holidays there seems to be not much action around. In addition, since Alpha 2 there had been no really development.
19 2 Steffen Ritter
Releasing the Alpha 3 on 10th January 2012 - as planned - would not make much sense since it would be the same actual package as Alpha 2.
20 2 Steffen Ritter
21 2 Steffen Ritter
Therefore we decided to post-pone the Release of Alpha 3 one week to January 17th.

Due to Organisation issues the Workspaces Team CodeSprint has been canceled, which affects the ExtJS 4 Migration and FAL Workspace Integration, too.

28 2 Steffen Ritter
29 2 Steffen Ritter
We shortly discussed the state of the current FAL development. A group of developers currently actively is working on it and will be meeting at Benni Mack's this week.
30 2 Steffen Ritter
31 2 Steffen Ritter
There are some fixes within the FAL-Repository not related to FAL at all wich should be submitted to Core before, to make the FAL changes more slim.
32 2 Steffen Ritter
33 2 Steffen Ritter
Furthermore there are some components which will not be delivered as part of the TYPO3 Core which are the Amazon S3 Driver, a WebDAV Driver as well as the media-Extension with several MetaData Indexing Services.
34 2 Steffen Ritter
35 2 Steffen Ritter
A team of interested people has to befound for maintaining them in future.

40 2 Steffen Ritter
41 2 Steffen Ritter
On Side of the ExtJS 4 Migratio Nothing more happened. Olly will try to find ExtJS 4 experts which will work on a payed bases on migrating the outstanding Tasks.
42 2 Steffen Ritter
Benni and Steffen have been working on the Skinning issues introduced by the Migration.

h3. Automating compile task
47 2 Steffen Ritter
48 2 Steffen Ritter
With the ExtJS 4 Migration another "auto-generated" piece of core has been integrated: The T3Skin for ExtJS (SASS compiled).
49 2 Steffen Ritter
50 2 Steffen Ritter
Some versions ago the Sprite System has been integrated. Sprites, CSS and Ext-Tables Configuration for the Sprite System are auto-generated to.
51 2 Steffen Ritter
52 2 Steffen Ritter
Currently developers have to manually regenerate the stuff upon changes and push them to... On conflicts it's nearly impossible to manually fix the conflicted state of these auto-generated stuff.
53 2 Steffen Ritter
54 2 Steffen Ritter
Therefore we discussed Gerrit/Jenkins based triggers, automating these task on merge and on check out of changes.
55 2 Steffen Ritter
Olly will locally investigate the Tasks and Create script, aiming to ease up the life of Developers.
