There’s a community summit next week after WordCamp…

There’s a community summit next week after WordCamp SF for those who don’t know. During this day we break into small meetings to discuss big picture items. These topics touch the entire community. In this case I’m specifically looking at adding more core development topics to the list, because it’s pretty barren right now.

Here’s some thoughts we covered two years ago at the last official summit. The timing of this, for reference, was about three months after 3.4 came out, and two months before 3.5 came out. I pulled this off the schedule:

I think most of these could benefit from a revisit in some way. A lot of specific and big improvements have been made in a number of areas (e.g. bug tracker, updates, i18n, JavaScript, multisite), but even then there’s a lot to cover and a lot has changed in two years.

Here’s some potential topics that have been proposed:

Some other ones that I’m now proposing:

  • After PHP 5.2
  • i18n/multilingual roadmap
  • multisite roadmap, 2.0
  • next steps for updates (or: how can we auto update everything)

And now I toss it to you: what else should be on this list? Quick, you have a few hours before the initial schedule is built.

I’m reading through all of the relevant documents from the summit in 2012, and attendees for this year’s summit, you should too. I linked all of them above in the first set of bullets.
