Hosting Meeting Notes: May 27, 2019

Here’s the summary of our meeting in #hosting-community on Monday May 27, 2019 at 1400 UTC (Slack archive).

Here is the agenda for the meeting.

Attendees: @mikeschroder @mazeheld @amykamala @Pandjarov @asa

Housekeeping – Meeting Time Check-In

Please share feedback and ideas on the new meeting times here:

WordPress 5.2

DreamHost noted a conflict with cron events and memcached (possibly other object caches) where cron jobs get stuck in cache and do not execute with WordPress 5.1 and up. Folks present didn’t know of an existing trac ticket.

Open Discussion

Plugin Security Checks

@Pandjarov proposed the idea of doing a thorough review of the existing plugin repo to identify security holes and other security concerns, on an ongoing basis. Potentially establishing checks to scan for potential security risks in code as commits are made. The idea of a security check/scanner integrated into WordPress Core was also brought up. More discussion pending.
