Weekly meeting

Transcript meeting in Slack

The handbook

Things go well, we are adding new content every week on the handbook – best practices.
@mercime will help with the documentation, starting with forms.

Gutenberg

There are improvements made to the keyboard navigation, specifically the inserter. This is still work in progress. The top toolbar has now arrow navigation too.
@samikeijonen requested a review for his pull requests on GitHub.

Test server

Nimbus hosting sponsors our team with a dedicated server, where we can install trunk and patches using SVN and Git. At the moment we do not use this server much.
The question is: do we still need it and and will we use it in the near future?

After a discussion we concluded: Yes we need it and we will use it more for testing in the future. The team requests test and Rian will do the installs, mail the testers and report the results.

WCAG 2.1 AA

Rian will write a post this week about what is new in WCAG 2.1 AA for the designers and developers.

One of the new requirements is a minimum size for the a link/button.
@afrecia added new a11y keyword target-size on Trac.
