A few weeks ago, I put out a call for volunteers for deputies for WordPress 4.5.
Today, I’m excited to announce two deputies:
WordPress Committer A developer with commit access. WordPress has five lead developers and four permanent core developers with commit access. Additionally, the project usually has a few guest or component committers - a developer receiving commit access, generally for a single release cycle (sometimes renewed) and/or for a specific component. Mel Choyce (@melchoyce) will be a Design Deputy, with a focus on maintaining UI User interface/UX User experience consistency and handling design decisions throughout the release.
Core Core is the set of software required to run WordPress. The Core Development Team builds WordPress. contributor Adam Silverstein (@adamsilverstein) will be a release Deputy! You’ll see him around both on the make blogs and trac An open source project by Edgewall Software that serves as a bug tracker and project management tool for WordPress. helping to manage the release.
Please join me in congratulating them both, and feel free to ping The act of sending a very small amount of data to an end point.

We gathered together after the marvelous release of 4.4. Many congrats to @wonderboymusic, his deputies @sergeybiryukov and @ocean90, and all contributors who helped out! See the full transcript for the entire chat.
@helen is building a product design team that is kicking off shortly. I’m excited about this — it’s an opportunity to really step up our game in the UX User experience space. She’ll be building out a few projects and calling for volunteers on make/design, so watch there if you’re interested in getting involved.
Officially, 4.5 doesn’t kick off until early January, but I’d like to start off with a ready-to-go set of teams. The time between now and then is also great for preparing feature plugins that you’re interested in seeing merged.

In lieu of picking one “backup lead” for WordPress 4.4, I have decided to recognize two of the hardest working devs in show business as my deputies for the release. They have both been crushing it in Core Core is the set of software required to run WordPress. The Core Development Team builds WordPress. for as long as I can remember and are essential to making this release run smoothly for me.
Excited to be working on another release with Dominik Schilling and Sergey Biryukov!
I have peace of mind when making bold changes to WordPress, because they keep us all honest and watch our changes closely. They know the codebase and have the experience to inform us of the implications of our changes related to the back end, front end, i18n Internationalization, or the act of writing and preparing code to be fully translatable into other languages. Also see localization. Often written with a lowercase i so it is not confused with a lowercase L or the numeral 1. Often an acquired skill., and browser compatibility. I dare you to stump @SergeyBiryukov on WordPress trivia, and I dare you to name a Beta A pre-release of software that is given out to a large group of users to trial under real conditions. Beta versions have gone through alpha testing in-house and are generally fairly close in look, feel and function to the final product; however, design changes often occur as part of the process. period where @ocean90 wasn’t an All Star.
Look out for them to lead bug A bug is an error or unexpected result. Performance improvements, code optimization, and are considered enhancements, not defects. After feature freeze, only bugs are dealt with, with regressions (adverse changes from the previous version) being the highest priority. scrubs and help me manage the release.
