At the theme review team we’d would like to increase the automation of our processes and try and make things a little easier for new members to become reviewers. In light of this we have a tool request for a new reviewer assignment button.
Spec of an assignment button:
A button that when clicked takes the wordpress.org 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. https://wordpress.org/ username logged in as and assigns the next ticket in the #4 queue. This will only ever assign one theme, if you have one not approved but in review you can’t get another this way – you must do one by one. It will also cc in any admins we want – primarily thinking Emil and me.
Placement of button and extras:
Along with this, there would be a report we could look at that showed any of these themes. This button will live as a menu item and also on the handbook in the ‘How to Join’. This will remove the request post requirement forever. This post creation each season is a bit of a pain point and people ask a lot where it is, this will solve that. It will also mean at contribution days people can get a theme without an admin being around. That should have a knock on effect of increasing reviewers – which is great.
As far as the term button goes, this could be a link to a page. The idea is though it is obvious. Perhaps button styling would achieve this, but we’re flexible about that. The goal is it’s obvious though and easy to use.
Any questions I’d be happy to answer.
