Core Editor Summary for November 20

This post summarises the weekly editor chat meeting (agenda), held on Wednesday, November 20, 2019, 14:00 UTC in core-editor Slack channel.

Weekly Priorities

Slack transcript.

See November Priorities post. Good to focus on these things as the month wraps to an end and start thinking on next steps.

  • Block Content Areas: expected to still be a focus for a while.
  • Navigation block (board): is close to get out of the experimental phase into the plugin.
  • Tightening up (board):
    • Polish to blocks and different parts of the UI is continuing.
    • Gradients are coming along nicely.
    • Some progress is being made to the Block Selection Tools.
    • Add color to specific text inside RichText (16014) is blocked by 17617 It’d be good to unblock those.

Triage role for GitHub

Slack Transcript.

GitHub has recently created a few new roles with more fine-grained permissions. One of those is the Triage Role that enables people to manage issues and pull request, and well as other actions. There was a consensus that this new role could help onboard new contributors and less technical folks who are not part of the Gutenberg group already.

Tasks:

If you’re interested in joining the Triage group, please, leave a comment in the agenda or the GitHub issue.

Welcome feedback on this exploration of hover/selection states for Full Site Editing concepts by @shaunandrews

Request For Comments experiment. A few months ago Gutenberg started doing a RFC for major features following this post. @youknowriad noted that it didn’t get as much traction as expected. Many agreed. To close this experiment and the open RFCs is being considered.

If you have any feedback about the RFC experiment, please, comment on this post or reach out to people involved. Feedback channels will be opened until next week when a decission will be made.
