Call for Volunteers – Early bug scrubs for WordPress 5.7

In preparation for WordPress 5.7, tentatively scheduled for a March 9th, 2021 release, it would be beneficial to start running weekly 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. scrubs around the tickets flagged as early.

Tickets marked with the early workflow keyword are a priority and should be committed as soon as possible in the release cycle. Indeed, tickets that are committed early can be tested during the alpha cycle, and other tickets may depend on them to be committed.

Alpha has been open for business since November 17th, so there are already some tickets in the report.


Leading a Bug Scrub is something any interested community member can do! Please comment below if you’re interested in running one bug scrub or two 🙂


To make sure we have at least some dates in the books, Let’s schedule two sessions on the same day, to allow for maximum participation across the globe.

If more scrubs are going to be needed before we formally kick-off the cycle, they will be added along the way.
