General messages

Dear developers,

PrestaShop project has reached a major open source milestone: the role of maintainer has been opened.

For years only PrestaShop employees could become maintainers for the project. This is not true anymore. Involved contributors can now apply for the position if they want to help the project to go forward.

Some applications have already been submitted and will follow the voting process described in the rules.

In the meanwhile, there are no more ’todo’ items in the 1.7.7 backlog. Once only the column ‘Done’ contains items, the Release Candidate 1 will be built and published. And if no issues are found in this version… then PrestaShop will be out!


A quick update about PrestaShop’s GitHub issues and pull requests:
