As a reminder, we have a chat tomorrow at 11:00 UTC. The update below is from last week’s chat
It’s been a while since we last met! I think WordPress 4.3 somewhat distracted us. 🙂 Here’s what’s happened in the last three weeks:
- Forums: Progress has been made on porting bbPress Free, open source software built on top of WordPress for easily creating forums on sites. https://bbpress.org. 1.x plugins! So far, @jmdodd has migrated two plugins to bbPress 2.x. If you’re interested in helping out, be sure to put your name in the “Migrate?” column of the table. (Need access? Just ping The act of sending a very small amount of data to an end point. Ping is used in computer science to illicit a response from a target server to test it’s connection. Ping is also a term used by Slack users to @ someone or send them a direct message (DM). Users might say something along the lines of “Ping me when the meeting starts.” me.)
- Translate: A “Waiting” tab now exists and both it and the themes tab is now sorted by the order previously discussed. Filters are still coming (pending design), but we’re well on our way. Additionally, themes are now in sync with the directory and fully caught up. That means if a theme is approved in the directory, it is automatically imported into translate.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/.
- Sort orders (and filters) in translate.wordpress.org.
- Properly log warnings in translate.wordpress.org to a Slack Slack is a Collaborative Group Chat Platform https://slack.com/. The WordPress community has its own Slack Channel at https://make.wordpress.org/chat/. channel so we can keep an eye on them.
- Fixes to
\r in translations.
- Rosetta header changes.
- An i18n dashboard to keep track of major products.
- Automation of Rosetta deploys (pending logging mentioned above).
- Job / queue system for imports and language pack generation (with systems).
About a month ago, I made a list of next steps before importing plugins to translate.wordpress.org and we’ve done them all, but run into a few other things needed (as listed above). That said, I think we’re very close to the point where we can import plugins. Of the items above, only the job system is necessary, due to the number of commits plugins receive. More to come on make/plugins.
