A couple months back, I reached out to Phil regarding the state of ZoneMinder. Phil gave me the greenlight to 'take over' the 'management side' of ZoneMinder, as he hasn't time to work on it currently. This conversation came in response to a number of us in #zoneminder longing for a new release. Phil gave me write access to the SVN repo and administrative access to the zoneminder.com site.
My first goal is to make ZoneMinder more open. I did this by moving the codebase over to github, selecting a development and branching model, and providing an area where issues, bugs and features can be openly documented and tracked. I also released a news announcement on the main site which summed up my changes. That can be found at http://www.zoneminder.com/content/zonem ... 6-underway
So why does this matter? What are we doing?
- Working out of git, on github.
- Ironing out a proper development and branching model. One has been selected (see above), now it just needs to be followed.
- Working on a 1.26 bug-fix release.
- Working on incorporating mastertheknife's and nextime's patches into the official repo, so that we can release them.
- Working on a rewriting the web interface. This has been my baby, and much progress has been made. Code is being tracked in the modern branch at https://github.com/ZoneMinder/ZoneMinder/commits/modern. Feel free to review and contribute! Clone the branch, make changes and submit a pull request! If you know CakePHP, you can help!
