Shiny Updates Chat Summary 5/10/16

This is a summary of the shiny updates chat from May 10. (Slack log)

Attendees: @ocean90, @swissspidy, @paaljoachim, @j-falk, @mapk, @obenland


  • Accomplished work since last week
  • Remaining work
    The landing page for feature projects still needs to be written, as well as contributor groups asked to review Shiny Updates. @ocean90 opened a few issues that need addressing as well. These things should all be done by the time of the next meeting though.
  • Activate after install
    Shiny Updates introduced a disconnect between installing a plugin and then activating it. @mapk offered to solicit more UX feedback to address what happens when there are plugin install request in the queue while the user wants to activate a plugin, and how WP signals a successful installation while changing the button action to Activate.
  • Open floor
    …was mostly spent on discussing approaches to update-core.php and inconsistencies between the theme and plugin install UI.

Next meeting is on Tuesday May 17, 19:00 UTC.
