We spun WordPress 3.1 off into a branch….

We spun WordPress 3.1 off into a branchbranch A directory in Subversion. WordPress uses branches to store the latest development code for each major release (3.9, 4.0, etc.). Branches are then updated with code for any minor releases of that branch. Sometimes, a major version of WordPress and its minor versions are collectively referred to as a "branch", such as "the 4.0 branch".. Several of us are at the WordCampWordCamp WordCamps are casual, locally-organized conferences covering everything related to WordPress. They're one of the places where the WordPress community comes together to teach one another what they’ve learned throughout the year and share the joy. Learn more. Phoenix coreCore Core is the set of software required to run WordPress. The Core Development Team builds WordPress. development workshop, and wanted to be able to tackle some minor enhancements or bugs so that we can get “buy in” by the participants and get them their first props.

Subversion switch your test installs to branches/3.1. Except for today at the workshop, we’re not going to be doing any 3.2 stuff. Don’t get distracted! We still need you to test the heck out of 3.1, and are hopeful that we can release soon.

Update: I created a “wcphx” milestone, against which we can close any tickets we do today. That will become the 3.2 milestone after 3.1 is released, so we have the historical record that the tickets were closed against 3.2. I just don’t want to call it 3.2 now or people will start putting tickets in that milestone. 🙂

Update 2: We sort of ran out of time before we got to committing stuff. Got a lot of people hooked up with local dev environments (or better local dev environments). and spent a lot of time getting them up to speed on TracTrac An open source project by Edgewall Software that serves as a bug tracker and project management tool for WordPress.. And of course spreading the gospel of debug bar. Going to just leave the 3.1 branch. We’d have to create it in a few days anyway. So until 3.1 launches, trunktrunk A directory in Subversion containing the latest development code in preparation for the next major release cycle. If you are running "trunk", then you are on the latest revision. and branches/3.1 should remain identical.
