Proposed agenda for 7/3

Note: I do know that it’s holiday time in the US. However, I think it would be best to have this discussion this week rather than next week on the day before the dev chat so we have some time to absorb and think thoroughly.

In anticipation of the dev chat for 3.5 scoping on July 11, let’s take some time to discuss the findings of the user testing @lessbloat so wonderfully ran and then see what that means in terms of things we can actually accomplish, or “actionable items”, if you will. Not everything we discuss has to be with 3.5 specifically in mind, and they can be both enhancements and dream features, but we should aim to come out of the meeting with some items that we can confidently propose to accomplish within the cycle, or even better, early in the cycle.

We should also take a little time after that discussion to talk about the actual process of iterating designs, the code to power said designs, cross-browser and 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). ( issues, code testing and review, and submitting patches for coreCore Core is the set of software required to run WordPress. The Core Development Team builds WordPress.. For those of you who aren’t comfortable with SVNSVN Apache Subversion (often abbreviated SVN, after its command name svn) is a software versioning and revision control system. Software developers use Subversion to maintain current and historical versions of files such as source code, web pages, and documentation. Its goal is to be a mostly compatible successor to the widely used Concurrent Versions System (CVS). WordPress core and the released code are all centrally managed through SVN. code-y bits, don’t worry one bit. We’ll be talking about how we can combine our collective strengths to get things done together.

P.S. CSSCSS CSS is an acronym for cascading style sheets. This is what controls the design or look and feel of a site. coding standards have not been forgotten. In fact, they are available for you to see and comment on, if so inclined.
