Call for Trac Tickets and Recap of 1/15/2016 Bug Scrub

On Friday January 15 at 17:00 UTC  we held the second 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. Bug scrubs are held in the #core channel of WordPress Slack.

Unfortunately, as I am unable to make today’s meeting, and was unable over the last few days to find a replacement, today’s meeting is cancelled. I hope to see you all at the next meeting, which will be next Friday at 17:00 UTC. Regardless, please feel free to use the time to triage tickets!

The Slack archive for last week’s meeting begins here: https://wordpress.slack.com/archives/core/p1452877403010570
During the bug scrub, the following tickets were covered:

#32318 , #32920 , #12955 , #25669 , #27056 , #28441 , #29660 , #34839 , #35100 , #13910 , #30352 , #2702 , #33045 , #33283 , #13459 , and #18877

Next week, the bug scrub will run approximately 1 hour. 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.
