Hello Bindu,

sorry that it took some time to react to your tweet (https://twitter.com/binduwavell/status/594324977953812480) inquiring about ways to support the ADDONS committee.
Apart from any new ideas / suggestions you might want to bring to the group, the current focus is on the following activities:

·         Review and refine the criteria catalog for addon reviews

o   Overview: https://github.com/OrderOfTheBee/addons/wiki/Inclusion-criteria-overview

o   Non-technical criteria in a bit more detail: https://github.com/OrderOfTheBee/addons/wiki/Non-technical-inclusion-criteria

o   Technical criteria in a bit more detail: https://github.com/OrderOfTheBee/addons/wiki/Technical-inclusion-criteria

o   The current state was intended as a draft, but so far, no significant changes have been proposed – it can be considered the current agreed-upon version at this point.

·         Select and review individual addons from the Alfresco community

o   Aggregated list of addons submitted for review or selected by committee members: https://github.com/OrderOfTheBee/addons/wiki/Addon-review-schedule

o   Reports of completed reviews: https://github.com/OrderOfTheBee/addons/tree/master/addon-reviews

·         Identify automation potential in addon review process and suggest potential tooling support (existing or to be developed)

I would very much like for someone else to take on one or two addons to review based on the current criteria catalog. First of all, this should help better gauge the effort required for a review (to reduce fear of time commitment for other contributors) as well as provide valuable feedback for refining/validating the criteria catalog itself.
But most import of all: It shows that both the Order of the Bee and this committee are actually doing something / getting traction. Momentum (or lack thereof) is one of our main challenges at the moment in my point of view. I aim to do one addon review per month but due to my current project, I’ve already failed this in April after the first two reviews.
