[OOTB-addons] Ways to help the ADDONS committee

I guess the bulk file system is halfly embedded in Alfresco.

I've been working on version 2.0 with Peter and Jérémie. This version will be included in a version 5 Alfresco someday. So sure we can include it, but I'm not sure we should be testing Alfresco's source code.

Best regards,

Tahir Shazad Malik

Hi Axel,

I read through the criteria. Mostly it makes a lot of sense to me. However, there were a few criteria I didn't understand. 

How about if I pull together some questions about these and then once I have clarity, I update the docs? 

In many cases, I was thinking examples of good and bad things might be helpful, so I could put some work into that as well.

In any case, once I have clarity on all of the criteria, I'd be up for running through the process with some addons.

I didn't see the bulk file system import tool in the list. Has that been disqualified for some reason?

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:
<!--[if !supportLists]-->·         <!--[endif]-->Review and refine the criteria catalog for addon reviews
<!--[if !supportLists]-->o   <!--[endif]-->Overview: https://github.com/OrderOfTheBee/addons/wiki/Inclusion-criteria-overview
<!--[if !supportLists]-->o   <!--[endif]-->Non-technical criteria in a bit more detail: https://github.com/OrderOfTheBee/addons/wiki/Non-technical-inclusion-criteria
<!--[if !supportLists]-->o   <!--[endif]-->Technical criteria in a bit more detail: https://github.com/OrderOfTheBee/addons/wiki/Technical-inclusion-criteria
<!--[if !supportLists]-->o   <!--[endif]-->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.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->·         <!--[endif]-->Select and review individual addons from the Alfresco community
<!--[if !supportLists]-->o   <!--[endif]-->Aggregated list of addons submitted for review or selected by committee members: https://github.com/OrderOfTheBee/addons/wiki/Addon-review-schedule
<!--[if !supportLists]-->o   <!--[endif]-->Reports of completed reviews: https://github.com/OrderOfTheBee/addons/tree/master/addon-reviews
<!--[if !supportLists]-->·         <!--[endif]-->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.
