Proposal: Creation of a @Gutenberg-Design team on GitHub
These days when someone needs to request input from a designer while participating in the GutenbergGutenbergThe Gutenberg project is the new Editor Interface for WordPress. The editor improves the process and experience of creating new content, making writing rich content much simpler. It uses ‘blocks’ to add richness rather than shortcodes, custom HTML etc. https://wordpress.org/gutenberg/ repository on GitHubGitHubGitHub is a website that offers online implementation of git repositories that can easily be shared, copied and modified by other developers. Public repositories are free to host, private repositories require a paid subscription. GitHub introduced the concept of the ‘pull request’ where code changes done in branches by contributors can be reviewed and discussed before being merged be the repository owner. https://github.com/ the only tools at their disposal are;
Flag the issue / pull request with the Needs Design Review label
Mention specific people directly
Neither option is ideal – designers cannot subscribe to labels, and individuals can be afk.
I’d like to propose the creation of a @Gutenberg-Design sub-team within the ‘Gutenberg’ team on the WordPress GitHub organization. In spirit it would be similar to the existing ‘@Gutenberg-Core’ developer team, and make it much easier to grab the attention of designers on issues and pull requests.
Since GitHub allows getting notifications for team discussions without joining the team, I propose we start testing this idea by inviting people that had or are actively contributing to design.
