Hosting Team meeting summary 2024-01-24

Last Wednesday we had a meeting, and this is a summary of everything that happened there.

SlackSlack Slack is a Collaborative Group Chat Platform The WordPress community has its own Slack Channel at conversation.

Data Liberation

About Data Liberation, maybe the team can help with some documentations. This project is focused on moving around different CMS (mainly), but we can try on helping to move around some technical things like domains, DNSDNS The Domain Name System (DNS) is a hierarchical and decentralized naming system for resources connected to the Internet. Most prominently, it translates more readily memorized domain names to the numerical IP addresses needed for locating and identifying computer services and devices with the underlying network protocols. or hostings.

Cloudfest Hackathon

The WordPress Tools for Hosting Providers project has been selected to participate on March 16-18, 2024 in the CloudFest Hackathon.

For this reason, we have 5 goals for that date.

The first is to leave a stable, functional, and documented version of the test-runner tool so that everyone works on that version. There is a PR #199 that establishes those changes and that base. It has been thoroughly tested and should serve as a basis so that the errors we have previously encountered are not there.

The second is to do the same work that has been done on the test-runner but on the test-reporter so that we also have a more or less stable version to work on the pluginPlugin A plugin is a piece of software containing a group of functions that can be added to a WordPress website. They can extend functionality or add new features to your WordPress websites. WordPress plugins are written in the PHP programming language and integrate seamlessly with WordPress. These can be free in the Plugin Directory or can be cost-based plugin from a third-party..

The third is to leave documentation of the entire operation of the tools and how to set them up in a development environment, as well as how they can be tested (each tool will need its explanation, since one is best to have a very “hostingHosting A web hosting service is a type of Internet hosting service that allows individuals and organizations to make their website accessible via the World Wide Web.” environment, and for the plugin, to have a WordPress development environment of its own).

The fourth, which involves everyone, is to define a list of “what things we want the tools to have.” In principle, there should be two lists, which must complement each other. One that executes the test-runner and allows executing “things”, and the other of the test-reporter that collects all that and displays it on the screen, in addition to planning warnings.

The fifth and last is to say that those who want to come to hack a bit, give a read to Come Hack with Us. We look forward to seeing you March 16-18, 2024, especially to have a great time!
