Vision for the TYPO3 Company

TYPO3 GmbH plays an important role in the TYPO3 ecosystem. Through the Supervisory Board, the Association provides guidance to the Company. Our goal is to help the Company deliver the best possible services to TYPO3 and expand adoption of the CMS.

To succeed we need definition and division of tasks between the company and community. The company needs clear expectations and the community needs a clearer understanding of the company’s role. We will work to ensure that expectations are formalized and communication improved between both parties.

Both company and community are responsible for maintaining positive communication. As community members, we cannot expect the company to do everything. At the same time, the company should be the Association’s professional arm and an enabler for the community’s activities.
