Editor Chat Agenda: 29 December 2021 (skipped)

This week’s meeting is being skipped due to anticipated low attendance at the end of year. Meetings will resume on January 5th, 2022. You’re encouraged to use this time to help test WordPress 5.9 Beta 4. For specific steps and areas to test, you can follow this post on how to test 5.9 features.

If you have anything you’d like to discuss or share asynchronously though, please share in the comments of this post. This includes the following:

  • If you have an update for the main site editing projects.
  • If you have anything to share for Task Coordination.
  • If you have anything you’d like to raise that typically would be discussed in the Open Floor section.

@paaljoachim and myself will follow up on any open ended questions or topics left on this thread.
