Introducing: The Maintenance Working Group

I’m excited to introduce to you a new working group that will focus on the overall code health of the Open edX project. The Maintenance Working Group will focus on the following goals:

  • Ensure the repositories that support the Open edX core product offering are well maintained.
  • Support maintainers of Open edX Repositories
  • Find/Replace maintainers as needed
  • Prioritize and coordinate major dependency upgrades
  • Discover and prioritize improvements to make the Open edX ecosystem more maintainable
  • Develop and document best practices for using maintenance tooling such as Dependabot and Renovate and serve as a center of expertise for such tools.

The working group will NOT:

  • Do all the upgrade work.Non-goals
  • Arbiter every decision regarding architecture or practices for specific parts of the code.
    • If it does not impact the whole project , we defer decision to local experts.
