Hosting Meeting Notes: October 17, 2018

Here’s the summary of our meeting in #hosting-community on Wednesday, October 17, 2018 at 1700 UTC (Slack archive).

Attendees: @danielbachhuber @dhsean @ugyen @mikeschroder


Please review and suggest/comment on the hosting Gutenberg working document.


There were only a few folks this week, but the meeting this week was focused primarily on Gutenberg, and going over @mikeschroder‘s prepared doc on hosting team asks/tasks.

@dhsean liked, in particular, the idea to provide instructions in the WordPress panel surrounding troubleshooting.

@mikeschroder will check in with folks on the final proposed UX with/without the classic editor plugin installed.

We briefly discussed plugin developer notifications, and when they were going to go out. These went out on October 19 (thanks plugins team!).

@mikeschroder has started work on benchmarking Gutenberg, which is one of the items in the document. If anyone has existing performance or benchmarking data, or wants to help with this, please leave a comment, or come chat in #hosting-community.

@danielbachhuber is going to look into the REST API questions in the doc.

During conversation about docs, @mikeschroder brought up the suggestion to coordinate with existing docs efforts for Gutenberg.

When asked about getting existing Gutenberg tests (including End-to-End tests) working on hosting automated tests running,  @danielbachhuber said he thought it wouldn’t be a lot of work to add them.

After a call for feedback for the quarterly update, “Prepping for Gutenberg release” was suggested as top priority and current struggle.

If you have any notes, comments, or suggestions to add to the doc, please do!


Miss this week’s meeting and want to discuss the initiatives above? Spend some time in the comments and share your thoughts!
