After discussing with XWiki SAS internally here’s a list of items that’s
interesting to fix for XWiki SAS (in that order, from top to bottom) from now
till end of the year (i.e. 8.4.x).
The goal is to try to take as many issues as possible from this list, starting
from top to bottom.
Process I propose:
* For each dev, take an issue that is the closest possible from the top and
work on it. Put your name on http://www.xwiki.org/xwiki/bin/view/Roadmaps/ and
assign yourself to the jira issue.
* Once done, repeat.
* The names put below are just indicative and should be considered as ideas of
devs who could work on them.
Ordered list (top is most important):
