Profiles – Weekly Update 8

Hi Everyone!

As you know, I’m working on enhancing The community site where WordPress code is created and shared by the users. This is where you can download the source code for WordPress core, plugins and themes as well as the central location for community conversations and organization. as a part of GSoC’13 and this is my eighth weekly update regarding how things are going.

Once again, you can find my whole final schedule here:

As you can see from the schedule, there are no tasks due today so instead I want to talk about how I will proceed this week.

After presenting the new design of the in my previous weekly update, I received some really good suggestions and I would like to sincerely thank everyone who took their time to share their thoughts, you rock! 🙂

So this week, I’m planning to have a chat with Jen to decide how we should proceed UIUI UI is an acronym for User Interface - the layout of the page the user interacts with. Think ‘how are they doing that’ and less about what they are doing./UXUX UX is an acronym for User Experience - the way the user uses the UI. Think ‘what they are doing’ and less about how they do it.-wise, of course, if she has time. We need to figure out how we should handle the users with no plugins/themes and the users with too many plugins/themes. The comments I received in my previous blog post included possible solutions for this very issue so we already have a few ideas on how we can solve them 😉

In addition to that and fixing small theme bugs, I will be working on how we can better handle props in commit messages.

See you next week!
