Summary of 5/28 dev chat (IRC log):
@nacin and @tellyworth have been working on the .org API side for i18n and plugins page improvements respectively and should be ready for work on the core side soon. Be on the lookout for tickets and discussions.
@ericlewis has been working through the Media component in Trac and will be holding weekly scrub in #wordpress-dev alongside media grid chats, Fridays at 17:00 UTC.
@wonderboymusic has been evaluating various oEmbed endpoints as we add and remove them. Some services need some more evaluation: #28379.
- Embed representations in wpview need an iframe sandboxing solution investigated to avoid script conflicts inside TinyMCE and the admin: #28249
- The JSON REST API came a long way in the past week, especially on the documentation front, and is being placed onto the roadmap for the 4.1 release. From @nacin:
1.0 is a great step in the right direction; let’s push it hard; let’s put it squarely, loudly, and officially on the 4.1 roadmap (I’m comfortable doing that); let’s get a lot of core contributors focusing on it for the final mile, especially when it comes to internals
let’s get a lot of people to build things on it, including inside automattic, mobile apps, even wordpress.org stuff; let’s branch off 1.0 so we can decide paint and carpet colors on the master branch
- And finally, several people were added to various Trac components as component maintainers. You can be added at any time, or get on the road to becoming one by signing up for granular notifications on the components page.
