Task Coordination

There has been no task coordination due to the low number of participants. And me (@andraganescu) forgetting all about it.

Open floor

@mdxfr proposed the GutenbergGutenberg The Gutenberg project is the new Editor Interface for WordPress. The editor improves the process and experience of creating new content, making writing rich content much simpler. It uses ‘blocks’ to add richness rather than shortcodes, custom HTML etc. https://wordpress.org/gutenberg/ contributors should do a focus on ironing out bugs and missing features which prevent the front end rendering of blocks, templates and template parts to match 100% their preview in the editors. Marc offered these examples as seemingly different bugs that have the same underlying cause.

@tomjdevisser raised some questions about new contributor onboarding such as:

  • how do you earn the right to approve PRs?
  • who decides based on what how to prioritize tickets?
  • how do you know what projects to add PRs to?
  • is there a list with contributors per profession/area of expertise to ask for review/approval?

Some of the questions where answered in the thread, some have their answer in this bit of documentation – but some questions revealed a missing documentation about how project management works, particularly around priorities, creating issues that track Gutenberg phases and who are the people who are expected to offer this guiding. CC @annezazu @priethor for any input you may have.
