"..To develop a cutting edge, state of the art Web Content Management application framework..."

The main responsibility of the Development Working Group is taking care of the development of the Joomla! application framework and the Joomla! Content Management System (CMS). Besides the development of the Joomla! codebase the development working group defines the Joomla! roadmap strategy, creating (architectural) designs for major and minor versions and of course take care of bug and security fixes in maintenance versions.

The development working group holds two teams: the Development Team and the so called Bug Squad. Both teams have a separate responsibility but together they form the development force for the Joomla! project.

Joomla! is as every other open-source project based upon the fundaments of collaborative and is a community-driven project. This means that the software, the documentation, the ever growing number of available the extensions, support (forum, mailing, lists newsletters, user groups are collaboratively produced by users and developers all over the world.

In this section of the documentation wiki we have tried to describe all relevant aspects to Joomla! development. OUr effort strives to be as complete as we can be, but we don't rule out that information you are looking for is not (yet) documented. We encourage everyone to help completing the documentation effort and maximize the community effect within the Joomla! project.
