Here’s the meeting summary for this week. If I missed anything, let me know in the comments.



  • General theme update: The theme merged to CoreCore Core is the set of software required to run WordPress. The Core Development Team builds WordPress. this week, and now has a demo. The site pulls updates from trunktrunk A directory in Subversion containing the latest development code in preparation for the next major release cycle. If you are running "trunk", then you are on the latest revision. every 10 minutes. All GitHubGitHub GitHub is a website that offers online implementation of git repositories that can can easily be shared, copied and modified by other developers. Public repositories are free to host, private repositories require a paid subscription. GitHub introduced the concept of the ‘pull request’ where code changes done in branches by contributors can be reviewed and discussed before being merged be the repository owner. issues remaining that needed to be addressed were ported to TracTrac An open source project by Edgewall Software that serves as a bug tracker and project management tool for WordPress..
  • In the tickets, there are a lot of small issues on different devices. I encourage everyone to test and help on those if you have the appropriate devices.
  • #38375: Flatten/rename TwentySeventeen directory structure: The group decided to keep the assets directory as is and rename `components` to template-parts. The ticketticket Created for both bug reports and feature development on the bug tracker. will be updated.
  • #38390: Twenty Seventeen: Playlists don’t render on blogblog (versus network, site)/archive pages: The group decided the best option here for now is to update the core function get_media_embedded_in_content() to check to makemake A collection of P2 blogs at, which are the home to a number of contributor groups, including core development (make/core, formerly "wpdevel"), the UI working group (make/ui), translators (make/polyglots), the theme reviewers (make/themes), resources for plugin authors (make/plugins), and the accessibility working group (make/accessibility). sure there’s actually a src in the tagtag A directory in Subversion. WordPress uses tags to store a single snapshot of a version (3.6, 3.6.1, etc.), the common convention of tags in version control systems. (Not to be confused with post tags.) before pulling out content. The ticket will be updated. @joemcgill offered to help there.
  • The group discussed video headers some, #38172. A new patchpatch A special text file that describes changes to code, by identifying the files and lines which are added, removed, and altered. It may also be referred to as a diff. A patch can be applied to a codebase for testing. has been added that helps mitigate large file sizes, but should be tested. Adding the functionality to add videos from a URLURL A specific web address of a website or web page on the Internet, such as a website’s URL, like YouTube, would help this feature progress. It still needs more work though.
  • #38426: Twenty Seventeen: Improve user and developer experience with the customizerCustomizer Tool built into WordPress core that hooks into most modern themes. You can use it to preview and modify many of your site’s appearance settings. integration: This ticket needs to be addressed, but best to do it there since it covers a lot.
