E2E Tests in Core Core is the set of software required to run WordPress. The Core Development Team builds WordPress.
End 2 End tests are automatic tests simulating user interactions using a browser in a production environment. Gutenberg uses Google Puppeteer and a docker environment to run a suite of various e2e tests that include:
- Creating and publish content,
- Writing Flow,

- Core: To validate that the Gutenberg integration is working properly and allow other parts of WordPress Core to be tested using this setup.

Shorter-term, we discussed the possibility of duplicating the tests in Core to validate the Gutenberg integration and package updates.
