IRC Meeting: August 7, 2013

A very busy & productive meeting. We’ve identified two high priority areas that we’d like to focus on in the next couple of months.

The Add Media Panel

Unfortunately, the changed proposed in Trac ticket 23560 didn’t make it into WordPress 3.6 — which is a real shame.

The Admin User Interface

The MP6 plugin is slated for incorporation in WordPress 3.8 — which will be developed simultaneously with WordPress 3.8. We need to re-check the current version of MP6 and relay any issues back to the relevant development asap. @davidakennedy and @esmi will be taking the lead on this.

Other issues

After about an hour, the MWA team de-camped to join the WP 3.7 initial planning meeting in #wordpress-dev. During this meeting, the team were asked to confirm the recommendations behind the Trac ticket 24766. I’ll be publishing a new post specifically for feedback on this ticket shortly. As always, your comments would be most appreciated.
