This post serves to jump-start discussion before the weekly check in, which takes place in #core-media on Slack. The next meeting is Friday, October 21 at 17:00 UTC and agenda for these meetings includes moving priority tasks forward, providing feedback on issues of interest, and reviewing media focused tickets on Trac.
Summary from last week
- Media organization improvements:
- Add new core media widget (#32417) – No progress was made this week and it’s now too late for 4.7, but work should continue so it’s ready for a future release.
- Rotate Full Size Images on Upload (#14459) – @mikeschroder planned to do additional profiling re: complete resize+rotate times for upload vs editing.
- Better PDF Upload Management (#31050) – @mikeschroder is putting more attention on trying to get this in this release after chatting with @helen.
- Drag/Drop Ordering of Media Does Not Work in Chrome on touch enabled devices (#31652) – @adamsilverstein noted that the patch to enable sortable on touch devices was ready to commit, which was handled in  this week. Additional discussion about reducing reliance on `wp_is_mobile()` is happening on #33704.
- Accents in attachment filenames should be sanitized (#22363) – @gitlost has been working on updates for this ticket, which is now closely related to fixing #24661 (`remove_accents()` is not removing combining accents”).
- Usage of `image_size_names_choose` breaks JS attachment model attributes (#34981) – @azaozz suggests using
srcsetin the media library to make sure full size images aren’t used if a smaller image is available (as described in the ticket description).
- Responsive images (srcset) can include images larger than the full size (#36477) – The latest patch, which utilized `Imagick::getImageColors` adds a significant performance concerns. @mikeschroder punted this out of the current milestone for now.
Agenda for the next meeting
