This is the summary from the Design Chat on June 30 (Slack log)
@afercia @foliovision @helen @hugobaeta @jorbin @karmatosed @melchoyce@ocean90 @voldemortensen @zetaraffix (props for the amazing note taking)
1 – beta testing new release
“It’s important for us as a team to poke it, prod it and shake that beta thing!”
Also important to test on different devices. So it would be great if it were a weekend project for all who can (the more eyes, the better).
2 – the “about page”
Every release we have to make a new About page with the new update (the page shown after you update). The last few releases, it has been done by our dear @melchoyce. Would be great to ease her work load and help here.
@ocean90 opened a ticket for that #37246.
@jorbin: “At times the design has also included interactive elements. We’ve demoed the updated password meter and a few other things in the past – The password meter was animated until you clicked into it and then it was interactive”
Here’s the link to the beta (to get a feel for about page content) https://wordpress.org/news/2016/06/wordpress-4-6-beta-1/
@ocean90: “Top feature is shiny updates and I’d like to see something with interaction for that.” Also discussed possible addition of video of features and interactivity of sorts.
We agreed on aiming at July 27, 2016 (which is RC1) as a deadline for About page.
That’s 4 weeks and should be a good time.
The team: @hugobaeta and @ocean90 will coordinate to start process. Next week they’ll update on areas that need help. Maybe we’ll also get @sararosso onboard for copywriting.
@zetaraffix, @karmatosed, @foliovision happy to be on team/involved
3 – open discussion
@afercia brings up tickets: #37230 and #37233
The idea is for all to give it some consideration and add to those tickets.
Also ticket #35191 could use some input with regards to new wording for the actions in the import page.
We’ll be back next week Thursday July 7th, 20:00 UTC!
