Agenda: Documentation Standards – @yield

Current Standards | Github Example | JsDocs| Slack

Some discussion around documentation standards for the @yield JSDoc tagtag A directory in Subversion. WordPress uses tags to store a single snapshot of a version (3.6, 3.6.1, etc.), the common convention of tags in version control systems. (Not to be confused with post tags.):

Should the @yield JSDoc tag (used for generator functions) be considered as part of a grouping with @return?

There seemed to be consensus to consider @yield usage to be a separate grouping (newline between other “groups”, only aligned to itself).

Action: @aduth will update the documentations page to address the standards.
