XOOPS 2.5.11 Change Tracking (P.1)

The XOOPS 2.5.11 version is progressing nicely, the start of work on this version of XOOPS began on April 4, 2019. It is therefore exactly 3 years today that the development of this version began.

We have decided to celebrate these three years by offering a regular follow-up of the modifications of the XOOPS 2.5.11 version. To date more than 900 commits have been made on github, this figure is huge and it is relatively difficult to know what these changes entail. We will provide a weekly statistical analysis of the commits made and the impact on XOOPS for the main ones.

At the end of this series we will provide a file that will track all commits.

We start this series (N°1) with the analysis which goes from April 4, 2019 to November 11, 2019 (8 months)
