Technical work produced by this group
- 24 Dec 2012: First draft of Request For Comments: A Web Service API for the Joomla CMS
Primary communications channel is the Joomla CMS Development mailing list. If the volume of traffic becomes such that it might be deemed to be a nuisance by those not interested in web services, then we will most likely start a separate mailing list.
