Thanks to everyone who managed to make the IRC meeting on #wordpress-ui yesterday. We had a very productive discussion and — despite the entertainment provided by way of my terrible iPad typing — took the first steps towards organising the group along more formal lines.
@GrahamArmfield will be looking after Trac. Time permitting, he will be monitoring the existing accessibility-tagged tickets and taking the lead on the submission of new Trac tickets to cover issues such as the problems within the current custom menus admin area. So if you are thinking of raising a new Trac ticket, can you raise the subject here first? That way, we should avoid unnecessary replication.
@joedolson expressed a vested interest in the editorial flow area but, for the time being, will be concentrating on front-end accessibility via the proposed theme accessibility audit and an extension to the current theme submission checks.
@AccessibleJoe will take the lead on user testing videos so that we can build up a library of video resources to support core developers.
@esmi will continue to take lead on documentation (liaising with @Siobhan and @DrewAPicture) as well as working with @lessbloat and other members of the UI team to try to develop in-house user accessibility testing.
We are, however, still stretched pretty thin. So if you would like to get involved, we would love to hear from you. Those of you with the skills to create patches will be particularly welcomed by the UI Team who are currently overhauling the Custom Menus and Post Revision areas.
