WordPress 6.2

@annezazu shared the following on the agenda:

Before a 6.2 roadmap post similar to the ones that have come before is shared, lots of work has been done to revamp the following issue to make it the source of truth for the months ahead: https://github.com/WordPress/gutenberg/issues/33094 If you’re looking for ways to help in the coming months, please take a look at this issue and know it’ll be kept up to date! You’re also welcome to join a hallway hangout in the FSE Outreach Program

Please have a look into the issue and in case there is any feedback leave a comment!

@jorgefilipecosta added:

Thank you @annezazu for sharing this with us ensuring the issue will keep being updated!

It is good to have a single issue as the main source of truth for the work that will be done in the coming months.

Let’s try our best to ship the things there, and wrap up the customisation/ site editor phase.

Collaboration with the a11yAccessibility Accessibility (commonly shortened to a11y) refers to the design of products, devices, services, or environments for people with disabilities. The concept of accessible design ensures both “direct access” (i.e. unassisted) and “indirect access” meaning compatibility with a person’s assistive technology (for example, computer screen readers).

@annezazu shared this topic on the agenda:

Wanted to call out a great collaboration between the accessibilityAccessibility Accessibility (commonly shortened to a11y) refers to the design of products, devices, services, or environments for people with disabilities. The concept of accessible design ensures both “direct access” (i.e. unassisted) and “indirect access” meaning compatibility with a person’s assistive technology (for example, computer screen readers). (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Accessibility) team and core editor team in this issue: https://github.com/WordPress/gutenberg/pull/44028 It’s worth reviewing to learn from and was called out specifically by @alexstine (a11y team member) saying, “This needs to be highlighted as a good working example. It took much longer, but saves work in the future to go back and make it right.”

@jorgefilipecosta thanked @annezazu for bringing this topic to chat and thanked @alexstine for highlighting this collaboration, congratulating all the people involved in that issue.

Feedback on the Closing List view after selecting 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. The idea combines concepts of what in the past may have achieved with shortcodes, custom HTML, and embed discovery into a single consistent API and user experience.

@alexstine said the following on the agenda:

This is one I could use some feedback on.
https://github.com/WordPress/gutenberg/pull/45079
This issue has been stale for some time. I am never closed to hearing other ideas, I just would really like a way forward so everyone can maximize the use of the list view since it gets more accessible every release. If my suggestion would not work for you, what would?

@jorgefilipecosta and @ndiego shared feedback/insights on the pull request.
