The Laravel Collective is a new Laravel community organization headed by Adam Engebretson and Tom Shafer. It’s primary goal is to help maintain the core Laravel components that have been deprecated by the framework.
Currently the packages the Collective is taking over is HTML/Form, Annotations, and SSH. They have a new site in the works which, when launched, will have complete documentation, team information, and more information on the packages. Until it’s launched you can check out their GitHub repository.
If you have been relying on any of these components you will need to update the package namespace in your composer.json file.
For full documentation visit the LaraCollective site.
This is a great initiative and it’s cool to see the community stepping up on these packages.
