Producing a world-leading software product like Joomla requires the contribution of time and attention from a large number of different people. One of the issues we come across repeatedly is how to direct potential contributors to areas of the project where they can have the most rewarding and fun experience by being able to work on stuff that matters to them. The Community Working Groups idea is to provide the structures and community management necessary to create an online community that is enjoyable and rewarding to participate in, nurture and support online communities of users, provide support and information to users, and facilitate communication between users and the Production Working Groups. The Community Working Group will encourage groups of people to come together and help maintain the online community. Each of these teams will be led by one or more community members who will foster collaboration within the group and communicate on a regular basis with the Community Leadership Team (CLT).

There are over 100 members in the Community Working Group. See a list of current members here. This is a closed group, new members can only join upon invitation of a group leader.

Working groups will exist until the job they were set up to do has been completed. This means that some teams, like the Forum Working Group or Joomla! Extension Directory (JED) Team, will be permanent, while others will form and disband in the space of a single release cycle.

These working groups must follow our expected values of openness, inclusion and collaboration. They must follow the mission, vision and values of the Joomla project. Regular communication between the working group coordinators and the PLT is expected and it would be great if the teams could blog periodically so that the wider community can be kept in touch with progress.
