Almost two years ago, LoopBack 4 was released and announced at Node+JS Interactive event. Thanks to your support, we now have over 110k downloads per month on npmjs.com and over 3000 GitHub stars on the loopback-next repo. Recently, we created the LoopBack Slack community to provide a platform for the community and us helping each other. We are glad to see an increasing engagement in that front as well!

With the core of the framework maturing and contributions shifting to the LoopBack extensions, we think LoopBack has entered a new stage and it's time to revisit our approach to planning work, delivering features, fixing bugs, and improving documentation.

Contributors need to sign each CLA for each LoopBack repository they're contributing. To simplify the contribution process and encourage community contributions, we are planning to gradually switch to use Developer Certificate of Origin (DCO) as the contribution method.

Besides, while welcoming Nathan Chen join as a maintainer of the strong-globalize repo, we said farewell to Deepak.
