New CSS focus in Core

Core has a new focus! As a next step after the birth of the #core-css channel, we now have a matching CSS focus, and tickets are starting to be added to it. You can find existing tickets here:

How to use it?

Quoting from the post that introduced the focuses:

“Focuses are about broad concepts and help break tickets down by specialties and skills, rather than functional areas of core”

With that in mind, the CSS focus should include tickets about

CSS architecture and tooling,

New features that need custom styling,

CSS bugs

and anything else that affects CSS in Core.

Keep in mind that a ticket can have more than one focus, so it’s worth adding the CSS focus where it makes sense.

Here’s how it works:

You can add a focus in the new-ticket form, or in the Modify Ticket section of an existing ticket. Choose the appropriate ones from a list at the bottom right corner of the form:

Click on a focus to add it to the ticket.
