PHP Meeting Recap – November 12th

This recap is a summary of our previous PHPPHP The web scripting language in which WordPress is primarily architected. WordPress requires PHP 5.6.20 or higher 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

  • @schlessera adapted the in the Servehappy repository so that it just links to the Feature Project page, to avoid requiring both to stay in sync.
  • Adding support for PHP version requirements to themes was discussed (Meta Trac #3718). The current state of the requirement for themes to have a readme.txt file does not seem to be clearly defined, as the only source of truth is the combination of an old blog post from 2015 and its collection of comments.
  • @afragen proposed to split the individual next actions for theme support into separate tickets, just as we did with plugins.
  • We also initiated contact with one of the team leads of the #themereview team (@williampatton) to discuss the current state of the theme’s readme.txt requirements.
  • @schlessera noted that while it seems we need to help move some unrelated stuff forward to get around our own blockers, we should be careful to avoid taking on too much responsibility and wasting our time on unrelated efforts.
