Appreciation and Recognition
This is not the official end of the year summary. So don’t look for detailed reports of what’s been accomplished. Instead, as we approach the end of another incredible year, we want to take a moment and say a very heartfelt “Thank you!”. This has been one of our most exciting years ever and we’ve seen so many outstanding things happen. And everyone deserves to feel the satisfaction of a job well done. So please accept our deepest appreciation for everything you’ve done.
Details of the Holiday / Date of Return
Here’s the bottom line.
Starting at 12:01AM (UTC) Saturday, 21 December 2013, until 12:01AM (UTC) 02 January 2014,
Joomla is taking a holiday. This means that no official decisions will be announced, no major changes will take place, and no one is under any obligation to respond in a timely manner to any request. We know, this sounds crazy and how could anyone live in the real world, interacting with real people instead of spending hours in front of a computer screen staring at another email thread. It’s true. Joomla is more than software, more than a community, and as such, we understand there are some things of greater importance than discussions about code. (Some things...but not many).
When a community has a year like Joomla has experienced with such a high level of contribution, interaction, and commitment it’s important to take time to recharge. It’s important to take some time off for mental health. We want 2014 to start strong, and to stay strong; and that means we should all get rested and ready for what lies ahead.
