GnomeWeb Development Timeline
The gnome.org development is based on the general GNOME's release timeline, with a new major release every 6 months. The challenges of each release are defined in the GnomeWeb/Goals. Here we structure each goal into scheduled tasks assigned to contributors.
The idea is to combine the continuous and decentralized development with a common strategy and a common commitment to a schedule. This timeline is applied primarily to www.gnome.org but other GNOME websites' maintainers are invited to join it.
