Media Meeting Time Changes

To better accommodate all the usual attendees, the team has decided to move the meeting time to one hour later, at 2000 UTC. If this is a problem for anyone who would like to attend, please comment on the post or in #core-media!


This meeting was primarily focused around Gutenberg Media Triage using this filter as the reference. 

  • The best way to follow along with media related Gutenberg items is the media label in GitHub.
  • Repository milestones
  • 5240  mediaelement component needed for audio and video blocks –  discussion took place around the desired experience for a v1 of the audio/video features. It was decided best to continue on the path to getting the audio block and mediaElement component finished out on this one. @joemcgill agreed to help test. 
  • 5209 Fix Image Alignment@joemcgill mentioned some backwards compatibility concerns and expressed them in this comment on the issue
  • 4914  Enhancement: Inspector interface for setting pixel dimensions of image – This sparked a conversation around a need for contributors to share any media flow discrepancies. In the case of the discussion our concerns were around things like the edit image modal looking different from core’s implementation.
  • 4612   Media Library doesn’t update after dragging image onto Image block@antpb and @joemcgill to do testing on this one to verify the media-upload button is working.
  • 4491  Gallery block: editing a gallery uses “Insert gallery” button –  @antpb to investigate. This is another example of workflows needing to be tested to identify these problems.
  • 3945 Right-align small images pinned to top-left of boxblock – This is likely a CSS issue. @antpb mentioned it may also be the block adopting the formatting bar’s width causing the weirdness.
