The unit tests and design repos ( and are now integrated into the coreCore Core is the set of software required to run WordPress. The Core Development Team builds WordPress.

Where to find them: You may find them on the “Browser” page. They remain separate SVNSVN Subversion, the popular version control system (VCS) by the Apache project, used by WordPress to manage changes to its codebase. repositories. (We’re using Trac’s multiple repository support.)

How to reference commits in tickets: Rather than [UT123] to reference a unit testunit test Code written to test a small piece of code or functionality within a larger application. Everything from themes to WordPress core have a series of unit tests. Also see regression. changeset, you can use [123/tests]. Same goes for [D11] and [11/design]. Note though that the old ways still work (it’ll just redirect three times to get there).

Or, even better: If a commit references a Trac ticketticket Created for both bug reports and feature development on the bug tracker., it will now automatically be posted there, just like core commits.

Commit notifications: All three repositories send their commits to the wp-svn mailing list.

Where to post patches and create tickets: On core Trac. Items meant to be committed to the design repository were nearly always going to come from existing tickets anyway. If you happen to be proposing new unit tests for existing code, you may now just create a new ticket on core Trac. If you are proposing changes or improvements to the test framework itself, use the “Unit Tests” component. There are still some open tickets on on the old Trac, as well, but I’ve shut off ticket creation over there.

Why? This was an action item from the community summit. A number of developers felt it did not make sense to marginalize these projects on their own Trac installs. Now, you can follow them all in one place, and it ideally raises the profile of them too.
