In their vision, The Joomla Project can see:

  • People publishing and collaborating in their communities and around the world;
  • Software that is free, secure, and high-quality;
  • A community that is enjoyable and rewarding to participate in;
  • People around the world using their preferred languages;
  • A project that acts autonomously;
  • A project that is socially responsible;
  • A project dedicated to maintaining the trust of its users;

Around the world there are thousands of users as well as thousands of people who contribute to the Joomla!® Project.

These people work in three main groups:

  • The Production Working Group: who are responsible for everything that goes into the Joomla software and documentation;
  • the Community Working Group: who are responsible for creating and nurturing the Joomla community; and
  • Open Source Matters: the non profit organisation responsible for managing Legal, Financial and Organizational matters.
