WordPress 6.3 design kickoff

A new release has begun, and this time @richtabor and I are collaborating on the design leading. In order to kick things off, we are holding an open zoom session May 26, 2023 at 14:30 UTC. The Zoom link will be shared in #design.

After the session, a recording will be posted here, along with notes and updates.


  • Discuss what is going to happen going forward.
  • Begin to prepare a spreadsheet of all issues across GitHubGitHub GitHub 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/ and tracTrac Trac is the place where contributors create issues for bugs or feature requests much like GitHub.https://core.trac.wordpress.org/. that need doing.
  • Prepare a list of things that will need issues that haven’t got any.
  • Have some space for questions or look to answer them async.

The session will take 30 minutes to ensure everyone can easily watch or drop in. It will be a working session with a focus on getting all the issues into a log.

Questions about design in releases?

Do you have any questions you want answered? Whilst we might not get time in this meeting, the goal of this release is to document and setup future leads for being able to access information easily. Is there something you’ve always needed to know about leading design in a release? Curious how it happens and can’t find specific information?

Now is the time to ask the questions you can’t find the answers to and get those responses documented so you and future contributors can be empowered to lead awesome releases going forward. So, you can do the following:

Once we have those questions, we will both try and answer them and also add to our list of things to document.

As one change to start off this kickoff, design triages are going to be part of the core and editor triages. This means that attending those times is something if you are curious about triage or getting involved is a good idea. There will be more on this and other ways to get involved as the release pace gathers. To discover the triage meetings you can find them in the meeting calendar link here.
