Sprint Focus

Our goal is a 2.2.1 RC release containing important bugfixes and django 1.4 compatibility.

Issues / Milestones

The relevant issues have been organized into three milestones on github.


1. Claim

Have a look at the open issues and find one you feel comfortable solving. Then contact one of the core devs to claim it. We'll then tag the issue as claimed and add [claimed by @username] to the description.

2. Code

Make a feature branch and start coding. Don't forget tests ;-)

3. Pull Request

Make a pull request to the develop branch on divio/django-cms. A core dev will review your pull-request, give you feedback and eventually merge it.


  • Important: We're working on django-1.4 support. But don't forget that we have to maintain backwards compatibility to django-1.2 and 1.3. Supported python versions are 2.5, 2.6 and 2.7
  • Always make feature branches (the git flow extension is awesome). If you'd use your develop branch for feature development, you'd be screwed if the pull request is not accepted. Also it makes it hard to work on multiple features without cluttering pull requests with unrelated commits.
  • there is a special buildout configuration that will install all supported versions of Django in the buildout environment at once. It eliminates constant re-runs of buildout and makes testing against different versions much easier. To setup: cd tests; bin/buildout -c django-all.cfg. To run: ./bin/django14 test cms, ./bin/django13 test cms, ./bin/django12 test cms, ./bin/djangotrunk test cms.
