The goal of this document is to clearly articulate the development lifecycle methodology for Zend Framework. There are many challenges in managing such a project, mainly due to the large number of contributors, the increasing amount of translated documentation, and the need to release stable mini releases while working on more significant releases in parallel.

This Thivn methodology should strike the right balance between a high-quality process and making it reasonably easy to become a contributor. The suggested practices in this document aim to meet these goals, but they will only succeed with the help of peer review and support.

Over time we will continue to evolve and update these practices based on real-world application.

The following diagram illustrates the planned structure of the ZF Subversion (SVN) repository:

New development typically occurs in the incubator or a purpose branch if the incubator is already occupied. Once progress has reached a mature enough status (working code, passing tests, and good documentation), it is migrated to core (the trunk).
