Community Industry Awards

Congratulations to @chanthaboune and @andreamiddleton for being nominated for CMX Awards! Well deserved! Thank you both for all that you do for the WordPress community!

Folks are welcome to vote for them here.

 E2E testing

@xkon re-introduced the idea of phpunit-tests supporting multiple submissions or reports from hosts. He shared this batch script to automate the setup of the phpunit-test-runner on his github. This can be used on various infrastructures and triggered with a cron job.

This is a great starting point for improving end to end testing.

Hosting Handbook

@mikeschroder has updated the /hosting team page heading

@mikeschroder also created this team-projects page to help new contributors get involved. 

Documentation, of course, is always being updated and improved. If anyone has anything to add or suggest please don’t hesitate to share.

Open Floor

An inquiry was made as to how results shown on the test results page are prioritized. @crixu pointed out that the page displays ten reports per revision sorted by the company name A-Z.

@xcon suggested that the page display a full list of results.

Feel free to share your own thoughts in the comments!
