    WordPress 3.6 Planning Session 

    I hope everyone enjoyed the holidays! We’re back to our regularly scheduled IRC meetings tomorrow, and are going to start by scoping and planning out the 3.6 cycle. Wednesday, Jan 2, 21:00 UTC. Please make every effort to attend! The theme I’m proposing for 3.6 is “Content Editing”, so especially start thinking about editing, editorial workflows, revisions, autosave, DFW, etc. Also be thinking about what you’d like to work on and how much time you can commit this cycle.

      I plan to be there, Mark! Looking to be an excellent release. I like the proposed theme. Depending what it ends up looking like, I imagine features for this version will be very relevant for me.

      this seems way more handy than the gallery functionality as it covers every single user and would lead to performance and UX improvement. Very exciting.

      Exciting. I’m going to follow along closely on this one! :)

      I hope to attend but will miss the first of the meetup. After discussing the multisite roadmap at WPCS I went through most of the multisite tickets. For 3.6 I think it would be good if we went through and cleaned up some of the small enhancements and UX inconsistencies. I’ll have a few hours a week throughout most of the 3.6 cycle to work on those items.

      As far as the custom fields and custom meta boxes go, I would like to see extendable form elements in WordPress similar to the extendable widgets. There should be a base form element class that all other form elements can extend, allowing for all form elements in the custom meta boxes to be generated using built in WordPress elements like, date picker, color picker, editor, etc. This would include input validation and all the sql validation as well. I have added something similar to this in the KickPress plugin that is in the plugin repository. (http://plugins.svn.wordpress.org/kickpress/trunk/kickpress-form-elements.php)

      Interested to see where this goes!

      Thanks Mark for your dedication. When you say “Content Editing” does that include looking into the_excerpt lenght . For example if the_excerpt could accept two variables, say the_excerpt ($length, $more) so that you can assign different lenght for different categories like so: the_excerpt (“50″, “more”), or the_excerpt (“25″ “read more”), etc. That may help CMS part of WP (like E-commerce, Newpaper themes etc).

    As the WordPress core team is in the middle of an in-person meetup, we’ll be skipping the IRC dev chat this week. We’ll be collecting our notes throughout each day of the meetup and posting a summary the following day.

    Weekly project meeting changed to 21:00 UTC starting Nov. 16 

    Normally the timing of the weekly project meeting IRC chat will not change with daylight savings changes, as it is anchored to 16:00 UTC. However, it also becomes an opportune time to adjust the time to better fit schedules for the core team and our most active contributors.

    We’re going return to 21:00 UTC time. This is morning in Australia, afternoon in the U.S., late evening in the U.K. It will be nice to see @dd32 at our chats again. :-)

    Today we’ll meet at 17:00 (now) and we’ll start with 21:00 next week.

    A number of us are doing daily bug scrubs (triage sessions) and 3.3 status checks (typically spontaneous and generally occurring in the U.S. afternoon), so we’ll see you around!

Thanks!

    GSoC Pre-Application IRC Chats 

    Okay, potential GSoC students. By now you’ve hopefully settled on a project idea or are narrowing it down between a couple of choices, have gotten some feedback by sending your ideas to the wp-hackers list, and/or have talked to mentors in the #wordpress-gsoc irc channel. For the next 6 days, we’ll be holding scheduled irc chats with a rotating cast of WordPress mentors, who are all looking forward to talking with you and hearing a little more about you before they start rating applications. You can use this time to ask questions, get live feedback on your proposal and just show your face (read: irc handle) so the mentors know you are serious about wanting to work with WordPress this summer.

    Format: each chat will be scheduled for an hour. Below is the schedule in UTC time (linked date/time goes to world clock site for easy local time translation). At the beginning of each chat, we’ll ask which students want to be speak. We’ll put them in a random order, and give each student 5 minutes. If we have enough time to give more, we will. You can direct your questions to a specific mentor, or to the mentors at large. When your time is up, please be respectful and let the other students have their turns. You can always talk more with mentors after the scheduled chat is over, as they’ll be lurking in the room all week until the application deadline on April 8.

    The chat location is irc.freenode.net #wordpress-gsoc. If you are planning to attend a chat, please leave a comment on this post and link to your proposal (on your WordPress-powered blog) so that mentors can look it over before you talk to them in irc.

    Good luck!

    I’m sure a lot of you have noticed the rez-bot issues in our irc channel the last week or two (Error: database locked, etc). Just wanted to let people know this has now been fixed. Props @apokalyptik (Demetrious Kelly).

    New IRC policy suggestion. Whenever the folks at #wordpress send someone over into #wordpress-dev, we send them back, and one or more of us need to bite the bullet and jump back over there and see if we can help.

    This has a few advantages. One, people who hover in #wordpress can learn, instead of always sending people our way. Two, we can keep the core development channel clean of chatter — including the logs, which some of us do try to read the scrollback for (I’ve stopped lately, but I used to always make sure I read the logs in full). Three, this then gets logged in the proper channel. Four, we also don’t raise expectations that #wordpress-dev is for general development. If we dip into #wordpress a bit more (I’m going to idle in it now, I think), we’ll have support questions in #wordpress-dev less, and it will increase our productivity.

    I know sometimes we like to adopt odd questions and challenges that come into #wordpress-dev — I’m as bad as anyone on this. But after spending an hour (and others before me) and many dozens lines of logs, we discovered that a recent issue came down to a bad APC configuration setting. [last line edited for clarity]

      This wasn’t the standard thing to do already? :)

    • dd32 9:21 am on May 21, 2010 Permalink | Log in to Reply

      I’m all for this, I dont idle in #wordpress due to the noise, But if someone comes to wordpress-dev or PM’s me/mentions it in #wordpress-dev, I’ll happily jump over to #wordpress to help someone out.

      • bentrem 1:21 am on May 23, 2010 Permalink | Log in to Reply

        I think what happens is that folk like you leave so even if something half-you,know reasonable comes up it either doesn’t get responded to or just degrades into noise. Backwaters become swamps.
        So what I’m thinking is that anything that get’s initially responded to in -dev and moved over into #wordpress has the effect of generating a bit of light. (I used to be on IRC every day with another big project OMG a decade ago.)

        • bentrem 1:23 am on May 23, 2010 Permalink | Log in to Reply

          By “moved over” I mean talked through, so stuff that isn’t -dev, strictly speaking ends up being dealt with while keeping the total payload there smaller and giving #wordpress a nudge in the right direction.

    • filosofo 11:03 am on May 21, 2010 Permalink | Log in to Reply

      I try to read all the logs, too, and it doesn’t seem like this is a frequent problem. Being a frequent problem is a necessary (though still not sufficient) condition for creating new policies.

      Does your IRC client use color-coded usernames? Mine (XChat) has that as an option, so it was very easy for me to skip over the remainder of this particular conversation once I got the gist.

    • Peter Westwood 7:24 am on May 22, 2010 Permalink | Log in to Reply

      This sounds like sound good practice to me.

      I do idle in #wordpress but barely read it

      I gave up trying to read the whole log of any channel a long time back!

    • hakre 10:29 pm on May 23, 2010 Permalink | Log in to Reply

      there should be no connections between those two channels but the user (as developer).

    The last group mentor chat before the GSoC application deadline is today at 4:30 eastern time, at irc.freenode.net #wordpress-gsoc. To make things a little smoother, interested students should leave a comment here indicating that they wish to speak with mentors in today’s chat. Provide a link to your proposal also, and/or to the hacker’s thread where your idea has been discussed. To help things go faster in the chat itself, please type out your questions in advance so you can copy and paste into the chat when it’s your turn. Also remember to type out a very short summary of your project idea, in case teh mentors haven’t had time to check out your links. Thanks.

    Don’t forget, the application deadline is Friday at 19:00 UTC!
