CSS Chat Summary: 12 November 2020

Full meeting transcript here on slack. @notlaura facilitated the meeting & wrote up this summary.


We discussed the timing of the bugbug A bug is an error or unexpected result. Performance improvements, code optimization, and are considered enhancements, not defects. After feature freeze, only bugs are dealt with, with regressions (adverse changes from the previous version) being the highest priority. scrub and that we will shift it to one hour later to stay with the usual one hour before the weekly meeting.

@sabernhardt will also help lead bug scrubs, and can rotate in with @ryelle and @kburgoine. @kburgoine will be leading the bug scrub next week (which is today…I am writing these notes quite late 🤭)


CSSCSS Cascading Style Sheets. Audit (#49582)

@notlaura made progress on a pull request to the css-audit repo to support storing audit configuration in a file. @danfarrow said he has pulled the latest version down and is getting back up to speed with styling the report, and intends to do a different template per report type.

The next step for the CSS audit it to get a review on the config pull request above, and to continue work on the report styling.

Color Scheming (#49999)

There were no color scheming updates this week as are paused on asking for feedback until after 5.6 is released.

That said, the WP Adminadmin (and super admin) can be tested with the color replacements using the login info outlined in this Slack message.

Visual Regressionregression A software bug that breaks or degrades something that previously worked. Regressions are often treated as critical bugs or blockers. Recent regressions may be given higher priorities. A "3.6 regression" would be a bug in 3.6 that worked as intended in 3.5. Testing (#49606)

@danfarrow said he has gotten the tests running locally.

The next step will be to test the reference screenshots against this pull request that contains the color scheme replacements.

Open Floor + CSS Link Share

No open floor topics this week, but a couple of quality link shares!

@notlaura shared The Raven Technique for CSS-only container queries.

@danfarrow shared that the classic Flexbox Zombies game has gotten a nice update – it’s a great way for folks to learn the concepts of flexbox.
