WordPress core and the wordpress.org released code are all centrally managed through SVN. https://subversion.apache.org/. and SSH Secure SHell - a protocol for securely connecting to a remote system in addition to or in place of a password. access.
We will set the server up next week, then we’re up and running again and resume sending tests to our team.
Joe started to work on a fork of the theme unit test data, focused on accessibility testing – a smaller set of data, eliminating false positives in the data, etc. He will let us know when it’s usable.
