The Magento Open Source Community Prioritization Process was kicked off in November of last year. This initiative empowers the community to influence the Magento Open Source roadmap and code base by upvoting the pull requests that brings most value to them. We then pick the most up voted PRs (Pull Requests) to work on and add them to the community dashboard with a purple label - “Community Picked.”
Read the progress update here that was shared last month on the first set of community voted pull requests.
We added the second set of following 6 PRs in mid-December based on community voting with the thumbs up reaction:
Here is the combined status of the PRs worked on so far. For real time status, please visit the community dashboard.
Please join me in congratulating the team for getting the following functionalities merged into the codebase:
Fixing the initialization of authentication popup modal, optimizes rendering performance and eliminates redundant logic where guest checkout is enabled on the stores. This saves a lot of CPU time as well therefore improving responsiveness.
Adding –exclude-group to cron:run introduces an additional way of managing cron groups allowing more granular control of the groups executed on each call. This improvement can be beneficial for stores that manage multiple cron groups introduced by customizations of installed extensions.
Thank you everyone who contributed to voting, reviewing, testing and merging of these PRs.
We need help from the community on the largest pie of the chart of 6 pull requests. These are waiting to be reviewed by the community Maintainers so that we can move forward with their testing and merge them into the mainline.
Please continue to vote on pull requests and help us pick the most valued ones from the backlog. Login into your GitHub account and vote with the thumbs up reaction. We are getting the next batch ready. Voting for the next batch ends on January 27.
