Editor Chat Notes: December 19th

These are the notes the weekly editor chat meeting held on Wednesday, 19th December 2018, 14:00 GMT:

  • Next week there will be no meeting to pause for holidays.
  • Volunteers for notes each week were asked for and @pbrocks, @orientedvirus8 and @ajitbohra volunteered.
  • Gutenberg 4.7.1 has been released with small fix for editor.BlockListBlock filter that was causing some BC issues for ACF blocks and other plugins.
  • Update on the Commit and merge status https://make.wordpress.org/core/2018/12/19/gutenberg-commits-and-merge-status-update/
    • Idea to bring some organising to the Gutenberg repo. We have a new branch called g-minor that will contain critical fixes to be back ported to core via package releases.
    • It was raised to consider using gitflow completely and document what the name means.
    • Some discussion rose around name of the branch and using gitflow.
  • 5.0.3 Focus: https://github.com/WordPress/gutenberg/milestone/83
    • This is the main focus now.
    • Uncertain if 5.0.3 will happen soon, dev chat will confirm this, however continue as if happening.
    • Please review, merge and fix those issues.
  • Update on the Widgets to Blocks conversion https://make.wordpress.org/core/2018/12/17/status-update-porting-widgets-to-blocks/
  • @gziolo is playing with e2e tests to include popular plugins: https://github.com/WordPress/gutenberg/pull/12578. Asked for help from anyone that has an idea how to make this easier. Ideally there would be one command which could run against a plugin name/url/zip.
  • @notnownikki has a testing request for: https://github.com/WordPress/gutenberg/pull/12981.
  • @chrisvanpatten gave a docs update
    • Trying to merge PRs quickly this week.
    • Thanks for everyone contributing.
    • Dev docs are improving rapidly.
    • User docs are focused on publishing a draft Google doc by the end of this week. A p2 post on make/docs will outline how anyone can contribute to this.
    • Docs meetings are on a haitus until January 8th but please continue follow in GitHub and on Slack in #docs.
