We recently finished with the initial version of a reusable component
capable of serializating and deserializating our DataModel . This covers
the serialization format we use for our web API, and not the one we use
"internally" for storing our entities. This happens to be the format which
is in our current dumps, and is thus dealt with by various people and tools
outside of our actual core software. We are now starting with the creating
of a serialization component for this format .
As before, everyone is welcome to contribute to this component. The work is
very self contained and requires little knowledge of our wider codebase.
The advice I have for the DataModelSerialization component also applies
here, so have a look at if you want to contribute .
