- Business Pizza Bugs and Fun event (PBF) on Friday July 12th.
- It's open to everyone, but this time it will be on a Friday to try to get more Joomla businesses involved.
- We'll schedule about 4 one-hour training sessions on the Friday before (July 7th) and one the morning of July 12th.
- For the announcement, we'll release badges that can be added to participants' websites, similar to the ones we did for Joomla 3 (i.e. I'M R3ADY!), in order to promote the event and also to acknowledge participation.
- The Joomla Bug Squad (JBS) Twitter account and a Skype chat will be used all day for communication. We might try hipchat.com instead of Skype though.
- Several JBS members cleaned up the JoomlaCode Tracker. Also, Github issue tracker now has every issue labeled and almost all of them now have tracker items. There's a few more that still need tracker items, but it's almost there.
