@karmatosed shared the need for more help on media related tickets in the Gutenberg project. She’s prioritized high priority items, which can be viewed in this report. We discussed a few specific issues:
WordPress 4.9 Release
Now that the 4.9 release schedule is announced, we can better plan priorities for the release. While helping Gutenberg is certainly a high priority, we plan to review tickets to add to the milestone during the meeting next week.
Bug Scrubs + Call for volunteers
Over the past few weeks, @desrosj has run separate bug A bug is an error or unexpected result. Performance improvements, code optimization, and are considered enhancements, not defects. After feature freeze, only bugs are dealt with, with regressions (adverse changes from the previous version) being the highest priority. scrubs focussed on unanswered tickets for the Media component. The next media scrub is planned for Thursday, Aug 10 at 16:00 UTC. We’d like to alternate times of these extra scrubs so it’s easier for people in different timezones to participate. If you’re interested in contributing, look out for a survey in the #core-media room to give feedback on times that work for you for bug scrubs.
We also are looking for volunteers who are willing to help type up recap notes from these scrubs and our weekly meetings, which is a great way to get involved and learn more about the Media component. If you’re interested in helping with any of these efforts, please contact @desrosj or @joemcgill on Slack.
