Where does the development team work? Permalink to "Where does the development team work?"

We do most of our work on the project’s GitHub page.

Internal team discussions happen in the following channels:

Those discussion channels are publicly viewable, as everything we do in JHipster is public, but only the board of developers can participate. The mailing list archives can be found on the Google groups page and the chat archives are available on Gitter.

How to join the board of developers? Permalink to "How to join the board of developers?"

  • Participate regularly in the project (commits, PRs, etc)
  • Ask someone from the current board, with some bio and background information, and that person will submit a vote on the dev mailing list
  • Everybody on the dev mailing list can vote (+1 if they agree, -1 if they don’t)
    • One “-1” vote will decline adding the new member, but the person who votes “-1” will need to explain why

What do people in the board of developers gain? Permalink to "What do people in the board of developers gain?"

  • Write access to the main repository, and to most of the projects under the JHipster organization.
  • Costs associated with the project (for example travel costs to come to a JHipster conference) can be paid by our OpenCollective account. This depends on the money available on the account, and this is decided and validated by the project leads.
  • Free licenses and free quotas that the project regularly gets from friendly companies.

Who are the “retired members of the board of developers”? Permalink to "Who are the “retired members of the board of developers”?"

JHipster is an Open Source project, we don’t ask anything from our members: they can leave the project or stop contributing at any time. But as members of the board have more rights than other people (including write access to the project), we need them to be active.

Board members will therefore become “retired” if:

  • They tell us they want to leave the project
  • They don’t contribute to the project for 2 years

Contributions are across the entire jhipter and hipster-labs organizations, and include:

  • Commits
  • Comments on issues/PR, responses to mailing list questions, activity on social media (Twitter, Gitter, Stack Overflow, Reddit, etc) related to JHipster
  • Project maintenance (triage, PR reviews & merge, cleanup of issues, releases, project planning)
  • CI/CD
  • Marketing & advocacy (Promoting a JHipster project on social media, conference talks, blogs, books, trainings, etc)

Every year the team leads make a list of “inactive members” and send an official email to ask them if they want to retire. Then 3 cases can happen:

  1. The contributor agrees to retire.
  2. The contributor wants to stay in the team and tries to participate in any capacity possible. If the same person comes up in the inactive list twice in a row (inactive for 2 years) then that person is retired.
  3. The contributor doesn’t reply for 5 weeks, then this person is retired.

“Retired” member can become active members again, if they contribute back to the project and get elected again. They will have an advantage over other contributors, as they already know the team.
