The Zend Freamwork is practically busting at the seams with community participation, and now the ZF development group is asking for even more. Starting June 12th, they're asking for propsals (specifically) from as many developers as would like to submit.
Starting Monday, June 12th, we would like to focus the community on proposal submissions and comments and at the same time focus the core team on reviewing and moving proposals and associated code into the repositories. We will introduce the Laboratory repository during this time frame for proposals that are not yet accepted to the core framework or are in a pending status. All accepted proposals will end up in the proper place before we move on to 0.2.0 development (expect 0.1.4 soon
The intent here is to develop a boiled-down listing of modules to create and include in the coming versions of the framework as well as fill in some gaps in its functionality.
There are also a few changes they mention wanting to make revolving around database functionality (ActiveRecord and quoting iisues). Prior proposals will be looked at and considered again as part of this process.
