The Magento Open Source Community Prioritization Process 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 - “Project: Community Picked.” We added 20 New PRs this month for processing based on the votes from the community. Read the progress update for this month here.
