Dev Chat Summary: April 25th (4.9.6 week 4)

This post summarizes the dev chat meeting from April 25th (agenda, Slack archive).

4.9.6 planning

  • Would appreciate testing help so people working in #gdpr-compliance can land as many of the GDPR tickets as possible in 4.9.6
  • Beta planned for Tuesday, May 1st
  • Expecting to freeze most strings for beta, Polyglots will also need lots of help translating strings coming in 4.9.6
  • #43862 will need some good old-fashioned hand testing when it lands

Updates from focus leads and component maintainers

Bug scrub communication

  • @mindmantra and @desrosj noted that there’s no space on the Meetings page or otherwise to note scheduled Bug Scrubs besides the post that goes out on the topic
  • Would it help to communicate scheduled bug scrubs other than the make/core posts? If so, where/how?
  • Decision to add bug scrubs to the Meetings page for 4.9.6 and reasses after release if that worked well, if so we’ll make that standard for future releases and add to the core handbook
