  • @olliejones: There’s a Site Health and Troubleshooting plugin, and similar but not identical functionality in core. Is there any plan to incorporate that pluginPlugin A plugin is a piece of software containing a group of functions that can be added to a WordPress website. They can extend functionality or add new features to your WordPress websites. WordPress plugins are written in the PHP programming language and integrate seamlessly with WordPress. These can be free in the WordPress.org Plugin Directory https://wordpress.org/plugins/ or can be cost-based plugin from a third-party into core? Or do Performance Lab modules need to target both environments?
    • @shetheliving: Someone manages that plugin, but not sure who; might be worth asking in the #meta channel

Our next chat will be held on Tuesday, August 23, 2022 at 11am EDT in the #core-performance channel in Slack.
