Dev Chat Agenda for April 22, 2020

Here is the agenda for the weekly meeting happening later today: Wednesday, April 22, 2020, at 20:00 UTC.


If anyone has any announcement to make, now is the time!

Upcoming Releases

  • Work has started on WordPress 5.4.1 lead by @whyisjake
  • All the maintainers have been pinged about 5.5. Some replied, some didn’t – please do, so scope and schedule can be proposed.
  • Work for 5.6, aka all-women release, continues. All the women that expressed interest have been contacted. @chanthaboune, @angelasjin, @cbringmann and I will work on phase 2: identifying missing roles and cohorts to organise the team that will ride along with 5.5

Highlighted blogblog (versus network, site) posts

Components Check-in

I have pinged MetaMeta Meta is a term that refers to the inside workings of a group. For us, this is the team that works on internal WordPress sites like WordCamp Central and Make WordPress. about having a weekly scheduled post to check Components status – @dd32 expressed some concerns about the noise that it will create. I would still suggest to move on with this for a three-month test.

But in the meantime… the usual:

  • News from components
  • Components that need help/Orphaned components
  • Cross-component collaboration

Open Floor

Got something to propose for the agenda, or a specific item relevant to our standard list above?

Please leave a comment, and say whether or not you’ll be in the chat, so the group can either give you the floor or bring up your topic for you, accordingly.

This meeting happens in the #core channel. To join the meeting, you’ll need an account on the Making WordPress Slack.
