Open Floor

@mikeschroder left some comments on the test runner and places to contribute here: https://wordpress.slack.com/archives/C3D6T7F8Q/p1579075230111800
Started some edits on pages in the Hosting team site. Most obvious is the header, where I added a list of potential places to contribute.

@mikeschroder also started to do some edits to the hosting team sites. Most obvious is the header, where he added a list of potential places to contribute.

@gtaniguchi raised again the importance to have multiple environments under 1 account for the php-unit-tests. Additionally, @gtaniguchi raised also the question regarding the need for nodeJS, grunt and so on for the tests as these tools couldn’t be installed on some environments and the WordPress Core don’t need them. @mikeschroder clarified that these tools are needed in the preparation environment and not the final testing environment. They set up a separate VPS that connects to the testing environment via SSH as the tools are needed to prepare the testing environment. Another option suggested by @mikeschroder would be to skip the building of WordPress each time the test is done. If such a feature is wished someone should open an issue for this on github.

@Crixu asked for the attendees of the contributor day on the upcoming WordCamp Asia 2020. Of the participants, @mikeschroder will join so far.

1800 UTC

@Crixu brought up an issue with some servers located in China which returned an HTTP-Code 429 while trying to get the latest package from wordpress.org. Leave a comment if you encountered a similar issue.

Next Meeting

The next meeting will be in #hosting-community on Wednesday, January 22th, 2020 at 0900 UTC. Hope to see you then!
