  • The bugscrub time will similarly be brought forward one hour from 01 April onwards

Project updates

CSSCSS Cascading Style Sheets. audit (#49582)

  • @ryelle‘s audit tool is nearly ready to share with the wider community once the “container audit” feature is in place
  • The PostCSS PR is tested & ready to merge. UPDATE: Now merged, thanks @ryelle!
  • @notlaura asked if the tool is ready to have its repo moved into the WordPress org. @ryelle will ask in #meta

Colour scheming (#49999)

  • We will have another mock-up share at the next meeting (25 March). If you’re able to please bring a mock-up of a component of your choice using custom properties
  • @ryelle reported having updated her mockup to use a roughly --prefix--location--property--state naming pattern e.g. --wp-admin--button-primary--hover
  • In @ryelle’s example some custom properties are derived from other custom properties e.g. --wp-admin--button-secondary--text: var(--wp-admin--button-primary). Users could override these derived values as required

Open Floor + CSS Link Share

With that the meeting drew to a close. Thanks everyone!
