Contao Open Source CMS Team
Since the shutdown of the Contao team in November 2013, the Contao project has been organized into workgroups, which share the tasks with the Contao association. We are introducing these workgroups here. Along with the workgroups, there are hundreds of developers, translators, and other contributors who have made Contao what it is today.
Workgroup "core development"
The workgroup "core development" is responsible for developing Contao. It reviews tickets, pull requests, and develops solution approaches.
The Contao Association is the official association supporting the further development of the Contao project. It organizes events, finances extensions development and Contao specific projects.
The workgroup "documentation" is responsible for documenting Contao. It coordinates the authors, reviews the pull requests, and merges them into the correct versions. It also steadily reworks and enhances the documentation.
Workgroup "public relations"
The workgroup "public relations" is responsible for news and PR. It keeps up with the specialized press and makes sure they publish articles about Contao on a regular basis. It develops PR campaigns together with other workgroups and organizes news releases. It also writes news on contao.org and manages the social media presences.
The workgroup "web" is responsible for the enhancements and the actualization of the Contao website.
Workgroup "CMS Garden"
The workgroup "CMS Garden" organizes the participation of Contao in the CMS Garden project. It is the interface to the CMS Garden association and coordinates the collaborators within the Contao community.
Workgroup "partner support"
The workgroup "partner support" is responsible for the Contao partners. It provides them with (advance) information and acts as a contact for all non-accounting questions.
Other tasks such as managing the community server, administrating the forums, or the organization of the Contao conference and Contao camp have been taken over by the Contao association. A current list of contributors of the Contao association is available on the association page.
Our international ambassadors have tasked themselves with representing Contao in their own countries and in their own languages, which includes translating Contao documentation and/or supporting the local community. Additionally, many ambassadors create their own content, such as custom tutorials or blogs about their personal Contao experiences.
