From the recent discussion about the roadmap & wishlist for 2021 and some other posts by @ryan, it comes to my mind that developing and coordinating the whole project for one person is becoming harder and harder and leads nearly to the reverse of expanding the ProcessWire ecoysystem. This is not against Ryan, i think everyone here knows how engaged he is about ProcessWire, but he has only 24/7 (sometimes i think he's got far more than that...).
We as the community could support the project (financially) to relieve Ryan and could take over some tasks from him. This could be, but is not limited, to:
Building a Foundation/Association/Company to ensure the persistence of the project and to fund the work put in ProcessWire of Ryan (and others). Nearly every other CMSs i checked has something like this (Drupal Association, Typo3 Association, Joomla Foundation, Wordpress Foundation, Contao Association, ...). This also puts more trust in the project, if someone new will check on his engagement in ProcessWire.
Assigning persons/teams to work on things:
Extending the core (when necessary)
Developing and maintaining major modules (e.g. page builder, admin themes, internationalization, marketing, ecommerce system, ...)
Testing and inspection of modules developed by others
Making translations of modules (translation of the core is mostly covered, i think)
Working on PRs & issues submitted on github
Working on the homepage
Coordinating the community efforts
I know, some resorts are already covered by others (e.g. @Pete for the forum, @horst for images, ... ), but there are many other areas where this ist not the case. By joined efforts by the ProcessWire community this hopefully will also attract new developers to the system and by a growing number of users this assists in the things above in a circular process. What do you think?
