During yesterday’s meeting, we decided on a daily bug scrub starting today (June 28) until July 10 (weekdays, and skipping July 4), at 19:00 UTC, an hour before our typical Wednesday meetings. This is a pilot; I hope to carry this idea through the dev cycle.

Additionally, there will be a meeting on Friday, June 29 at 20:00 UTC to discuss automated testing, with @maxcutler, Kurt Payne, and others.

We expect the dev chat on July 11 to be the session where we plan the features and scope for WordPress 3.5.

For the next two weeks, we’d like to put a focus on housekeeping — focusing on things that need early attention for 3.5, things that often get missed like triaging Trac tickets, and acting on tickets with patches ready for review/commit/feedback. The daily bug scrubs will try to pull all of it together. Let’s see if we can bring down the size of the Awaiting Review report, start hammering on the 3.5 report, and sifting through Future Release.
