Call for Trac Tickets and Recap of 1/8/2016 Bug Scrub

Today we held the first regularly scheduled bug scrub of the WordPress 4.5 release cycle. As a reminder, for the 4.5 release, trac bug scrubs will be held weekly each Friday at 17:00 UTC. The next meeting will be Friday at 17:00 UTC. Bug scrubs are held in the #core channel of WordPress Slack.

This week, we covered 4 trac tickets.

The Slack archive for this chat begins here: https://wordpress.slack.com/archives/core/p1452272470009065

Here is a list of the tickets covered:

  • #25650: When switching between blogs, wp_upload_dir ‘baseurl’ and ‘url’ may be pointing to the current blog not the switched one
  • #34406: wp_kses_hair is too stringent redux
  • #35160: Reorganize Feeds Unit Tests & Add Test Coverage for Atom
  • #15058: Validate option and transient name lengths

Next week, the bug scrub will run approximately 3 hours. Participants need not be present for the full duration, and everyone is welcome to attend.

We’ll start with a list of pre-submitted tickets, before going to an open floor. As time permits, the remainder will be filled with a mix of tickets in the 4.5 milestone, and abandoned tickets, taken from report 43 (Ancient Tickets) on Trac.

If you would like to submit a ticket for consideration for the bug scrub, please comment below with the ticket number. If you have extensive knowledge of the ticket, accompanying text which provides  a brief description of each ticket, its current status, and what needs to happen for the ticket would be appreciated. Bug scrubs are a great way to get extra eyes on tickets, feedback on patches, or suggestions on future routes.

During the WordPress 4.4 cycle, Trac experienced a net loss of approximately 600 tickets. The goal for the 4.5 release is to get to 2,500 tickets open on Trac. The current count is 3,347, which is 847 tickets from this goal.
