Meta Trac Ticket Focus, Feb 24

In this week’s Meta Chat we agreed to try focusing on the ten oldest 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. tickets with a has-patch keyword. (See here for background context).

Our goal for the next two weeks is to make some progress on these tickets. That might mean one or more of the following:

  • Assigning the ticket to someone who has volunteered to work on it.
  • Testing the patch and commenting with results.
  • Adding a fresh workflow keyword like needs-refresh or commit.
  • Removing stale keywords and milestones.
  • Discussing and deciding on the next steps.
  • Updating the priority.

The 10 tickets currently in that report are:

Note that the Custom Query link above is dynamic so its contents will change as we work on tickets; the static list of tickets in this post is the ten that we’re focusing on till the next meeting. If it will help then I’ll add these ten to a milestone for easier tracking.

Our modest goal is simply to get those tickets moving along further towards completion. If you’re looking for a place to ask questions or for general discussion about these tickets then the #meta channel on SlackSlack Slack is a Collaborative Group Chat Platform The WordPress community has its own Slack Channel at is a good place for that. We’ll review how the process went at the next Meta meeting in March.

Additionally, the Meta team is looking for volunteers to run a regular ticket triage session. If you’re interested then please comment here or in #meta.
