Ongoing value of these chats/meetings

  • @paaljoachim asked if/how we can improve the value of the Core Editor meetings.
  • @get_dave suggested including more of a triage session and wondered whether that would interfere with @ndiego‘s efforts.
  • @poena highlighted meeting time of day as a key blockerblocker A bug which is so severe that it blocks a release..
  • @ndiego noted that the triage sessions are also suffering from low attendance. He agreed that we should consider ways to improve the value of the chat.
  • @danielbachhuber suggested a better form of async meeting/scrubbing.
  • @danielbachhuber also highlighted the problem that it’s hard to get product decisions and feedback if you are not:

@annezazu shared the latest Gutenberg Phase 2 update.

“Here’s a TLDR for any devs looking at where to jump in next:
No development work started (yet)

Development work started but help appreciated to move it forward from the PR authors:


@hellofromtonya shared a Webfonts APIAPI An API or Application Programming Interface is a software intermediary that allows programs to interact with each other and share data in limited, clearly defined ways. Status

“Still in re-design of the architecture phase.
Close to merging the first re-architectural PR. What does it need?

  • Test it with plugins that are using the current functions to ensure nothing is broken, ie back compatibility is maintained with this phase.
  • Final code review
  • Then merge

Once merged, it will unblock the last re-architectural task.
Once both of those are merged, then performance tasks are unblocked.”


@scruffian posted an update on Navigation block:

“We now have the basics of the Navigation List View working. It is possible to view, edit and remove navigation items from the inspector controls. Drag and drop also works. The main areas of concern are:

  1. When editing an item, can we show the settings tab?
  2. Can we animate the opening of the blockBlock Block is the abstract term used to describe units of markup that, composed together, form the content or layout of a webpage using the WordPress editor.

These will be the next areas to focus on.

The issue description will be updated to reflect the current outstanding issues.”

@flexseth posted: “Documentation review: There are quite a few discrepancies in the ESNext flavor syntax used in Code examples for the documentation (and handbook). Maybe the #docs channel would be the best place to take up discussion on that though? I’ve been wanting to make sure all of the examples are functioning and writing more examples for components.. and to also look to establish a standard for the ES6+ code out there.”

@flexseth asked: “Do you know where first time contributors can submit to be listed as contributors for this year? In the contributor numbers for State of the WordState of the Word This is the annual report given by Matt Mullenweg, founder of WordPress at WordCamp US. It looks at what we’ve done, what we’re doing, and the future of WordPress. https://wordpress.tv/tag/state-of-the-word/., in one of the Hallway Hangouts a call for contributors was mentioned I think.”

@bph: noted: “AFAIK the contributor numbers in SOTW are always release related. 5.9 6.0 6.1. Each team has their own way of acknowledging contributions. 6.1 was the last release for the year. Every Gutenberg plugin release has a list of contributors, too. Example, including first contributors”

Well after having used WordPress for over 10 years, I can say the direction of the project is the best I’ve seen. Good work all! — @flexseth

Props to @paaljoachim for his review.

@bernhard-reiter shared an issue that needs help getting reproduced. This was discussed more in the CoreCore Core is the set of software required to run WordPress. The Core Development Team builds WordPress. devchat:

We’re currently investigating the .is-layout-flex issue. I’ve suggested a strategy to test our tentative fix and ship a WP 6.1.2 point version that I’d like to discuss during that chat later tonight. If you’d like to help out or if you’re otherwise interested, please join the devchat in about 5.5 hours! (If you can’t make it, feel free to leave your comments below mine, or at the GitHub issue.) Thank you! ❤️

Open Floor

We spend the entirety of the open floor discussing ideas on how to make the core editor chats more valuable and engaging. Over the past year, we’ve seen less engagement and participation. So we think it’s time to rethink the format of these chats.

@get_dave, @bernhard-reiter, @bph, @priethor, and @daisyo all shared great ideas and insights. You can view the full conversation in slack.

The ideas we came up with during the open floor are:

  • Better updates on Key projects
  • Key contributors in the room
  • Get help/volunteers for small-scope projects
  • Dive into a specific feature every week so that more folks not actively working on it can give it a spin, provide feedback, and, in general, unblock it with broader testing
  • A more informal, less structured meeting, more like office hours
  • Improving collaboration with folks on what I’m working on

@daisyo summarized it nicely:

When we try to cover everything that is being worked there is never enough time to go deeper in this meeting. Compiling the conversation today I’d suggest a Weekly featured project that’s predetermined and that someone deeply knowledgeable about the history, current status, and planned future can share. This would require some coordination and preparation ahead of time, of course, and it could be that it’s not possible to do every week.

It could also end up being a forced march that nobody wants to volunteer for. In which case there is something to be said about throwing a topic (like how do we make these meetings more engaging) out and see if it resonates enough to start a conversation.

What would YOU want to get out of a core-editor meeting, that will make you come back every week for an hour?

@andraganescu noticing that the meeting was the lowest engagement and participation ever recorded, confirming quite a long and steady trend of this meeting loosing its purpose, raised that we should make the meeting twice a month and also reshape its usefulness.

This is also a requirement because 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/ appears to be managed by the community much better than a couple of years a go:

  • there are consistently updated tracking issues
  • there are repeated and well done outreach programs
  • most of the editor issues end up as GitHubGitHub GitHub is a website that offers online implementation of git repositories that can easily be shared, copied and modified by other developers. Public repositories are free to host, private repositories require a paid subscription. GitHub introduced the concept of the ‘pull request’ where code changes done in branches by contributors can be reviewed and discussed before being merged be the repository owner. https://github.com/ issues

Therefore having a meeting just to have it seems pointless.
