The Update Working Group is the Production Working Group that is responsible for finding ways to make updating, upgrading, or migrating Joomla!, a simpler and smoother experience.
Official support for Joomla! 2.5 is scheduled to end at the end of 2014. Users need to be encouraged to start planning and upgrading to Joomla! 3.x. Tips and resources will help to prevent issues during upgrading, and remove anxiety from the upgrade process.
A large number of Joomla! web sites are still on 1.5.x. These users require a lot more help and guidance to successfully migrate their websites to 3.x.
The Update Working Group will collate current resources relating to Joomla! upgrades and migrations, write new content where needed, and liaise with Documentation, Production and Marketing to coordinate efforts.
Please send an email to Jacques or one of the PLT contacts and you will be added to the communication channel for this working group.
The next steps in this team are:
1. Documentation (docs.joomla.org)
2. Production (changes to the CMS)
3. Marketing (content for joomla.org, PR and Social Media)
