Hi there. I’m starting to think the UI Group should be rethought and split into more specific groups, since it has kind of wound up being a CSS and styling outpost of the core contributor group, which wasn’t my original intention. Have been thinking about creating specific areas with less ambiguous goals: graphics, usability/interaction design, CSS/layout, etc.
Like accessibility, this is an area where there are aspects of design, code, testing, and documentation, and I think that’s part of why it’s been hard to focus momentum… so many possibilities and once a couple of people pick a direction it looks to newcomers like we don’t care about the other stuff. No decisions yet, but in the meantime, if you consider yourself a member of the UI Group (or you’ve expressed interest here and have been waiting for direction on how to participate) you can help determine what happens and how UI is represented at a potential wordpress.org contributor summit by filling in this survey:
