September means back to school and freshly-stocked pencil cases. Get out your best Day-Glo highlighter pen to take note of the latest Joomla leadership updates!
The Times They are A-Changing

JPeople Who Need JPeople
The hardworking JPeople admin group, under the steadfast leadership of Sandra Warren, is reviewing the purpose of this social site, and has asked for community feedback. Please take a few minutes to express your thoughts on this important arm of the Joomla network.
A hearty thanks to the PLT and all diligent contributors for the successful launch of the 1.7.1 security release. You've got us covered!
The PLT wants to know if you have a feature that you’d like to see in Joomla, or an interest in a specific area that you think needs work. Sound like you? Read Join or Start a Production Working Group!
The Joomla Trademark team has started migrating all the registrations over to a new iMaQma Helpdesk installation, which will make it easier to track applications, and follow up on issues. The re-organization of the Trademark rules and information, is also in progress, and should be done within the next month. Go TM Team!
