WordPress 6.1.1 Planning

Update 7 NOV 2022: Added @mamaduka as the Release Editor Tech Lead.

Update 9 NOV 2022: Added Bug Scrub for Thurs, Nov 10th.


Coming after the WordPress 6.1 release earlier this week, both @desrosj and I are planning to lead a 6.1.1 release for some fast-follow items that came up near the end of the 6.1 release cycle and have bubbled up post-release such that we would like to try and ship before the end-of-year holidays start to pull folks away from contributing. If there is a critical bugfix that has a patchpatch A special text file that describes changes to code, by identifying the files and lines which are added, removed, and altered. It may also be referred to as a diff. A patch can be applied to a codebase for testing./PR ready, then please look to add those to the 6.1.1 milestone in Trac or the WordPress 6.1.1 Editor Tasks project board in GitHub.
