since I’m a little bit frustrated at the moment because of the translation handling fiasco (e.g. https://forge.typo3.org/issues/80855 or https://forge.typo3.org/issues/62921) I want to write some lines here.
I love the concept of Open Source and I was (some time ago) not a big fan of how the linux kernel is managed (one final instance which decides if some changes make it into the kernel or not).
Meanwhile (after I spent hours and hours to track down problems in the TYPO3 CMS core) I changed my mind. Wouldn’t it be a good idea if there is one person (or handful) who have real good knowledge of the whole TYPO3 CMS ecosystem at the top who decides if a patch/feature goes into the system or not.
Maybe the quality of the TYPO3 CMS project would benefit from such an approach.
From my point of view TYPO3 CMS should be a framework for developers to help them bringing new system to life “quick and easy”. At the moment I think we (or at least I) do more core debugging than coding at the real task.
What do you think?
