General messages

Dear Developers,

Did you notice the new banner on the Core Weekly? It now matches the new theme of ;-)

Also, last week, a few 2018 records have been broken on PrestaShop project’s repositories on GitHub:

  • 78 pull request merged in one week, including
  • 40 pull requests merged only for the Core, and
  • 41 pull requests merged from a single contributor, @MathiasReker who is passionate about code lint
  • 80% of the PR were from contributors external to the PrestaShop company

It means two things:

  • You are an amazing team of contributors, contributing more and more with quality pull requests, easier to review and to merge
  • It helps to improve the maintainers productivity on code review and merge

How the end of the year could be better for an open source projet? Congratulations to all PrestaShop developers for this amazing year.
