    Emoji Chat Agenda, February 25, 2015 

    Here’s the agenda for Wednesday’s Emoji Chat in the #core channel on Slack.

    Time/Date: Immediately after the Dev Chat.

    1. Emoji Helper – On platforms that don’t have an emoji keyboard, should we provide one?
    2. Performance – When we’re falling back to Twemoji on large pages, we have to consider how it will perform. Are there faster ways of replacing the emoji characters with images?
    3. Open Floor – There’s still time to rant about the evils of emoji! Let us know how you really feel.

      In regards to Customizer transactions, my most recent thoughts are that I’ll hold off pushing for getting everything polished for 4.2. I don’t think I’ll have enough time to give it the attention it needs to make this release. Instead I’ll focus on some related pieces and general improvements that will make it smoother for merging in 4.3.

      • Paal Joachim Romdahl 12:21 pm on February 11, 2015 Permalink | Log in to Reply

        Why is Press This and Emoji being worked on gradually becoming feature plugins planned for core? It seems a lot better if a priority list was created with what is most needed in WordPress, and work was done in that direction.

      When will the “Needs Early Attention” patches form https://core.trac.wordpress.org/report/6 get merged?

    • Jonathan Brinley 3:39 pm on February 11, 2015 Permalink | Log in to Reply

      #17817 needs some attention. Any committers able to review before it’s too late for 4.2?

      What happened to someone beginning to work on adding tags/taxonomies to the media library? I have a feeling someone began looking at it but have not heard a word about it for quite sometime.

      I’d love more thoughts and feedback for Customizer transactions: https://make.wordpress.org/core/2015/01/26/customizer-transactions-proposal/

      If not concerns, then more green lights and thumbs up.

    • Nick Halsey 7:54 am on January 28, 2015 Permalink | Log in to Reply

      I can’t make the meeting most weeks this semester due to class, but current status is that @sheri and @mikelking are both working on user testing and we’re fixing a few minor issues as they come up. I’m planning on tackling the remaining issues listed in my update post this weekend, and posting another update before our next meeting next Tuesday.

      I do read the logs, so I’d appreciate any general feedback that comes up during the meeting, as well as feedback submitted through other mediums.

      I’d also like to add to the agenda under Mobile to bring up #28784. Especially as we add more things to the Customizer, we really need to make it more usable on smaller devices. Shouldn’t take nearly as much effort as places like the media modal to make improvements here in 4.2, but we need eyes and patches there. The controls UI is already mobile-first, it’s really just a matter of making the controls/preview toggle more intuitive as a toggle here.

    • Paal Joachim Romdahl 1:16 pm on January 28, 2015 Permalink | Log in to Reply

      A few open questions that come to mind.

      What happened to beginning talks on revamping Settings?

      Further along a similar thread…..Any plans on discussions about which areas of priority in the WordPress backend need updating? (Of course this would be a huge discussion but one that is needed.)

    • Boone Gorges 2:03 pm on January 28, 2015 Permalink | Log in to Reply

      Splitting shared terms #5809. We’ve got some dev-facing documentation drafted, and will be soliciting feedback in the next few days.

    • Paul Bearne 2:11 pm on January 28, 2015 Permalink | Log in to Reply

      Can we look at workflow where unit tests for existing (working) code can get committed quickly so that we can encourage increasing the test coverage.

      I started to write tests for functions.php but have got discouraged as there is no clear way to get a pure unit test patch commented. I would thought that we should be able to these committed quickly.

      Here is couple tickets with mostly test patches but in both cases I found issues and this why I want to see this work done.

      https://core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/28559
      https://core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/29063

      We had a big project to get comments for actions / filters doing the same for Unit tests would be good

      • Boone Gorges 6:30 pm on January 28, 2015 Permalink | Log in to Reply

        Paul – Of note, we are no longer committing failing tests; see #30284. So, when creating a patch that contains tests, it’s wise to separate out those tests that are currently passing, since only *they* can be committed immediately (and be sure to note this point in your comment when posting the patch).

    • 4.1.1
    • Review 4.2 schedule
    • Feature plugins for 4.2 and beyond

    Let’s cancel today’s weekly meeting, since the holidays are starting for some of us (and ending for some others).

    It can be open office hours* if anyone is around (I doubt I will be), but everyone (@johnbillion especially!) deserves a nice break for a great WordPress 4.1 release. It’s already been downloaded 2.5 million times, there’s been a lot of great feedback, and I also haven’t seen anything major reported. I just triaged about 40 recent tickets to be sure. Check out the 4.1.1 ticket report.

    Please check that report when you have time to see if there’s a ticket you should be giving feedback on. For example, I see stuff for @azaozz and @avryl (#30696), @helen (#30813), and @obenland (#30831). Again, nothing important, so enjoy any break you may be taking. Happy holidays!

    I suspect next week (New Year’s Eve) will be an informal meeting, as it’ll be only the afternoon for those in the U.S.

    * Keep in mind people are in the #core channel on Slack all the time, so it’s really 167 hours of office hours per week, plus one meeting.

    Release candidate and today’s dev meeting agenda 

    4.1 was originally due for release today, but a few tickets in the 4.1 milestone have held things up a little. The release candidate will be tagged in time for today’s dev meeting at December 10 2014 21:00 UTC, and the target release date is now Monday, December 15th Tuesday December 16th.

    Here’s the agenda for today’s dev meeting:

    • Documentation from various make/core posts need to go into the plugin handbook and theme handbook.
    • The 4.1 page on the Codex is in progress.
    • Eyes on the support forums – the alpha/beta forum has seen almost no activity so we need eyes on the forums as a whole.
    • ‘About’ page design – @melchoyce, kelly, @helen #30435
    • Plugin developers – update your plugin’s readme files to indicate support for 4.1 once RC1 is released. You’ve tested all your plugins with the beta, yeah?
    • Looking for something to do? Tickets reported against trunk needs some continued triaging.
    • Status of plugin directory l10n and recommended plugins tab. @stephdau @tellyworth
    • Discuss status of l10ns for polyglots.
    • Discuss a status update meeting type thing on Sunday.
    • Discuss release plan. @nacin
    • Any other business.
     
    • Jeff Chandler 7:26 pm on December 10, 2014 Permalink | Log in to Reply

      One possible reason for the Alpha/Beta forums having low activity is that there hasn’t been much in the way of beta release communication on the WordPress.org development blog. There’s a small mention of a beta at the bottom of the 4.0.1 security update post but that’s from Late November. Hopefully, news of the RC1 release will be published on the official blog and that might get things going again on those forums.

      In that post, I’d also like to see specific items you want people to test.

      Plugin Directory l10n

      I’ve just uploaded a major milestone to #760-meta which bring the complete solution to life, as what I’d qualify as a sophisticated proof-of-concept (as in still needs a lot of work/testing but shows everything off):

      • code & readme translation processing
      • localized directories content translation display (wporg code already use gettext for its strings, that’s covered)
      • translation caching policy, as well cache expunging on interaction with translate.wordpress.org (imports, edits, etc)
      • api content translation display when passed a language param (arbitrary, not set-in-stone)

      See screenshots showing it in action here: https://cloudup.com/cmAHT9qu2Wx

      For release plan, I’ll be on duty to prepare new versions of default themes for submission to Themes directory.

      @john
      Just a question of release : why when, testing feature on a temporary website, updating from admin from 4.1beta2 …734, we arrive directly to 4.2 alpha… and with no RC release…
      Please tell how to fin RC nighty build

    • conservativeread 1:06 pm on December 11, 2014 Permalink | Log in to Reply

      same issue here updating from admin from 4.1beta2 we arrive directly to 4.2 alpha

    • Xavier Borderie 2:03 pm on December 11, 2014 Permalink | Log in to Reply

      @michelwppi @conservativeread As discussed on Slack, “[the developers] branched 4.1 a bit earlier this time, that’s why you’re getting 4.2-alpha. The plugin gives you the nightly build from trunk, not the branch.”

    • Michel - xiligroup dev 4:18 pm on December 11, 2014 Permalink | Log in to Reply

      @[the developers]
      Branching is practical for developers… but not for ‘devoted’ testers… the update page in WP dashboard is unusable with / for RC versions… So need to use again FTP client even on localhost… and avoid again to go to 4.2 alpha… I am sure that developers can solve the UX issue 😉

      • Knut Sparhell 5:09 pm on December 11, 2014 Permalink | Log in to Reply

        I second this. I was really annoyed by experiencing the beta tester plugin took me to 4.2.alpha insted of 4.1-RC1. If you (leads) are going to branch out before last RC in the future please give us a beta tester with three options (point releases, beta/RC or trunk). Those who always want latest alphas select trunk, betaRC-testers select beta/RC. During the cycle we can change option from trun to btea/RC to avoid this, and still have alphas at the start of a cycle.

      Under “Any other business”: progress on plugin directories (code/readme) internationalization:

      • Good progress, got both plugin code and readme processing (in practice), and GlotPress import (in theory for now).
      • Examples of POT file extracted from IRL readmes: https://cloudup.com/c4-PkWGb7mG
      • Currently: dealing with makepot.php expecting the plugin directory name to match the plugin slug (not so with tmp file), last hurdle before GP import.

      Unfortunately I can’t hang around, but I’d like to give #30337 a quick plug – it could use feedback.
