What we worked on last week
Lots of fixes and improvements went in — thanks to everyone who reported and patched and tested.
Bigger items discussed:
1. Fixing the sidebar A sidebar in WordPress is referred to a widget-ready area used by WordPress themes to display information that is not a part of the main content. It is not always a vertical column on the side. It can be a horizontal rectangle below or above the content area, footer, header, or any where in the theme. (including discussion of dropping it completely). We decided to just swap primary and secondary sidebars for now. See #23644.
2. Remove fixed navbar for mobile — yes, let’s remove it. See #23647.
3. Keep fixed navbar for desktop for now, but next step is to switch site title to menu there, try that out.
IRC Internet Relay Chat, a network where users can have conversations online. IRC channels are used widely by open source projects, and by WordPress. The primary WordPress channels are #wordpress and #wordpress-dev, on irc.freenode.net. logs: Tue Feb 26 2013 | Thu Feb 28 2013

Non-theme tickets that affect Twenty Thirteen’s progress:
- #15080: Comment Form Should use HTML5 input types for better accessibility Accessibility (commonly shortened to a11y) refers to the design of products, devices, services, or environments for people with disabilities. The concept of accessible design ensures both “direct access” (i.e. unassisted) and “indirect access” meaning compatibility with a person’s assistive technology (for example, computer screen readers).
