General messages

Dear Developers,

New year is coming soon. We expect the activity on GitHub to slow down a bit as some people take time off for holidays. This is also true for for maintainers, product and QA teams.

PrestaShop is on track and quality continues to increase on PrestaShop core as PHPStan is now analyzing PrestaShop code under level 4 thanks to @Progi1984.

By the way, did you notice the new design and features of the Contributors page?
