PHP Meeting Recap – May 7th, 2018

This recap is a summary of our previous PHP meeting. It highlights the ideas and decisions which came up during that meeting, both as a means of documenting and to provide a quick overview for those who were unable to attend.

You can find this meeting’s chat log here.

Chat Summary

At this meeting there was some continued conversation around plugins & theme php version requirements (see parent ticket here)

  • @sergey has made some progress on technical restrictions
  • #design feedback will be needed as a part of implementing how restrictions are communicated to the user.
  • Initial goal for this is block installation of plugins in environments that don’t match php requirements for the plugin.
  • @flixos90 is going to get in touch with the design team regarding feedback on the mockups.

Also on the agenda was continued conversation around design/layout work for the PHP upgrade page. We took a look at this mockup that was done by @jaymanpandya, however for the most part we felt that in order to progress on this, the feedback needs to come from the #design team itself and those involved in the design of the overall WordPress.org site. To that end, @flixos90 has created a ticket in meta for tracking this and this is a callout to anyone involved in #design (and particularly with regards to the overall design of WordPress.org and how this would fit in with that) to review the current mockup and add comments.

Next Meeting
