Upgrade/Install component meeting notes from May 4th, 2021

On Tuesday May 4, the component held a meeting in the #core-auto-updates SlackSlack Slack is a Collaborative Group Chat Platform https://slack.com/. The WordPress community has its own Slack Channel at https://make.wordpress.org/chat/. channel.

The main topic in agenda was the Update the Updaters project kickoff.

These are the decisions taken about it:

  • The group will tackle the outcomes in order, to complete one sub-project before moving to another.
  • The weekly upgrade/install component meeting is back and the updater project will be part of them. Tuesdays at 5 pm UTC is confirmed.
  • @francina will post the agenda and host the meeting. If she isn’t available @audrasjb will step in.
  • @pbiron is going to go through the tickets in the “Outcome 1” list to prioritize them before the next meeting.
  • @audrasjb will refresh his patches as part of the “Outcome 1” drive.
  • The attendees agree that @schlessera‘s proposal to make everything as compatible as possible with WP-CLIWP-CLI WP-CLI is the Command Line Interface for WordPress, used to do administrative and development tasks in a programmatic way. The project page is http://wp-cli.org/ https://make.wordpress.org/cli/ should be part of the scope.
  • No additional tools will be used to keep track of the project at this time since it’s a small group of people working on it. If there will be more contributors (🤞), the decision will be revisited.

The attendees also checked an open ticketticket Created for both bug reports and feature development on the bug tracker. on TracTrac An open source project by Edgewall Software that serves as a bug tracker and project management tool for WordPress.
