Team Updates

Design Working Group:

  • @travel_girl shared: Destructive UIUI UI is an acronym for User Interface - the layout of the page the user interacts with. Think ‘how are they doing that’ and less about what they are doing. is still on my bucket list but it will not happen this year. Documentation Working Group:
  • @joedolson shared this updated ahead of the meeting for comment: I’m working on some of the tasks for 6.5; currently in the customizerCustomizer Tool built into WordPress core that hooks into most modern themes. You can use it to preview and modify many of your site’s appearance settings. – and will be publishing the call for accessibility allies soon, probably tomorrow. He also mentioned and is trying to move a number of old tasks from “worked on but not finished” to “finished”. Gutenberg Working Group:
  • @annezazu shared this update for comment/discussion:

Hallway Hangout: Working session on consolidating various navigation modes happening on the 15th. Render Selected BlockBlock Block is the abstract term used to describe units of markup that, composed together, form the content or layout of a webpage using the WordPress editor. The idea combines concepts of what in the past may have achieved with shortcodes, custom HTML, and embed discovery into a single consistent API and user experience. Tools in HeaderHeader The header of your site is typically the first thing people will experience. The masthead or header art located across the top of your page is part of the look and feel of your website. It can influence a visitor’s opinion about your content and you/ your organization’s brand. It may also look different on different screen sizes. when using Top Toolbar was merged after two different proof of concept PRs. Alongside that above PR, the following PRs were merged to support it: Migrate keyboard-navigable-blocks e2e tests from puppeteer to playwright Escape on Block Toolbar returns focus to Editor Canvas Refactor Selected Block Tools Refactor Site Editor Document Tools Navigation to own component Refactor Edit Widgets Document Tools Navigation to own component Resizeable box (for resizing cover block) should use after block popover slot Only render block toolbar if blockType has value Move document tools motion to header-edit-mode layout level Move clientId key to BlockContextualToolbar In terms of upcoming work, here’s a recently opened issue: Be more specific when handling escape deselect from block editor. Data Views work continues with an overview issue here. This is a high impact area to be aware of with lots of work happening.

Meta:

  • Joe reported that MetaMeta Meta is a term that refers to the inside workings of a group. For us, this is the team that works on internal WordPress sites like WordCamp Central and Make WordPress. is still working on the website redesign; feedback is always welcome in #website-redesign

Open Floor for Discussion:

  • Joe Dolson broached discussion on the fututre of the bug scrub, summarized here:

Possible changes effective in January depending on approach decided on:

  1. Different time/date. The current scrub falls at the end of the European work day on Friday, which guarantees difficult participation for that region. Moving to an earlier time or different day may help;
  2. Encourage variable times. Instead of having a regular bug scrub led by one person, have different people do different times/dates;
  3. Do not have a regularly scheduled scrub. This does not mean we don’t scrub issues; it just means it isn’t a regularly scheduled plan; and
  4. Finally, we have a problem with engagement on accessibility tickets. How can we get people to take on tasks?

Proposed going to the 2nd and 4th weeks of the month, on the opposite schedule of the meeting, and moving to Tuesday at 14:00 UTC (to avoid conflicting with A11yAccessibility Accessibility (commonly shortened to a11y) refers to the design of products, devices, services, or environments for people with disabilities.
