WordPress Meta Environment

Setting up local development environments to contribute to the MetaMeta Meta is a term that refers to the inside workings of a group. For us, this is the team that works on internal WordPress sites like WordCamp Central and Make WordPress. sites can be an obstacle for those without access to the private subversionSVN Apache Subversion (often abbreviated SVN, after its command name svn) is a software versioning and revision control system. Software developers use Subversion to maintain current and historical versions of files such as source code, web pages, and documentation. Its goal is to be a mostly compatible successor to the widely used Concurrent Versions System (CVS). WordPress core and the wordpress.org released code are all centrally managed through SVN. https://subversion.apache.org/. repositories or a sandbox, especially at a meetupMeetup All local/regional gatherings that are officially a part of the WordPress world but are not WordCamps are organized through https://www.meetup.com/.

We’ve talked a bit before about making this easier by creating a Vagrant configuration, so I put together a prototype based on Varying Vagrant Vagrants, with WordCamp.org as the first site. The sample data needs a little love, but other than that I think it works pretty well.

I’ll test it out with some people this weekend at WordCamp Seattle. If anyone on the team wants to add other sites or make any changes, just let me know and I’ll add you to the repo.
