Twice-daily ticket triage / bug scrubs start today. For WordPress 3.7 we’re going to structure two daily IRC gatherings — at 13:00 GMT and 20:00 GMT, or 9:00 a.m. and 4 p.m. EDT. These will take place weekdays in #wordpress-dev on freenode. (Note, the second meeting on Wednesday is actually the weekly developer meeting instead.)
A number of core contributors are always in #wordpress-dev to provide feedback and look at tickets, but we’re hoping some structure here can also set some “office hours”-style expectations and ensure rapid feedback. At least one committer will aim to be at each of these (often it will be many more). If no one brings up specific tickets for attention, discussion, and feedback, it’ll revert to a fairly standard bug scrub that would include looking over recent Trac activity, clearing older tickets, and looking through the 3.7 ticket report.
