As we all are busy bees, a lot has been happening!
The Mage-OS community is growing!
New faces are joining the meetings and more and more people are eager to contribute. Very exciting!
Please join the fun and chime in on Discord. The volume of messages still is very manageable.
Mage-OS Distribution Repositories
The GitHub repositories forming the foundation of the independent Mage-OS distribution have been set up.
GitHub workflows automatically merge upstream changes. In case of a merge conflict, notifications are sent out and the automatic merge process is paused until the conflict is resolved by a human.
Mage-OS GitHub access permissions and PR review rules are now enforced by Terraform. This automation helps avoid human error and eases the overall maintenance burden on contributors.
The immediate next step is to finalize CI for the nightly builds for the distribution repositories, and to set up testing.
We then are looking forward to starting accepting pull requests by the end of December 2022! Figuring out the best way to handle them will take time, so please be patient with us!
(Much) more soon, thanks for reading! 🙌🏻
