Call for npm maintainers
We have only 6 team members which are able to publish updated npm packges to npm. We would love to extend this group to have more flexibility and better coverage when people take time off.
@noisysocks volunteered to help with the upcoming release 🎉 Let us know if you are willing to join the group.
Update on Mobile Gutenberg
Kudos to @hypest for adding tests for Mobile Gutenberg in Gutenberg’s Continues Integration job. This is the first step towards merging those two repositories together and bring their development process even closer. It will help us prevent introducing changes which would break the mobile project.
