Welcome to the MetaMetaMeta 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. Team!
The Meta team is responsible for maintaining and managing WordPress.orgWordPress.orgThe community site where WordPress code is created and shared by the users.

Our work is mostly done on the meta trac. If you see a bug, file a ticket!
Learning how to make your first code contribution can be intimidating, but it’s not as hard as you may think.
This tutorial will walk you through the minimal steps necessary to fix a sample bug. Once you’ve gone through it, you can apply the same steps to real bugs and feature requests. It will take between 10 minutes and a couple of hours, depending on your development environment, prior knowledge, etc.
If you get stuck anywhere along the way, feel free to ask for help in the #meta channel on Slack.
The MetaMetaMeta 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. team uses a tool called Trac to manage bug reports and feature requests. A new ticket is opened when someone reports an issue and then closed when the issue is resolved.
If you open that ticket, you’ll find that it has a description of the “bug” that we’re going to fix. The change is intentionally minimal since the important thing right now is just learning the process.

Now that you’ve fixed the bug, we want to share the new code with the Meta team, so that they can incorporate it into the official code repository. The first step in that process is to generate a patch file, which contains the changes in a format that can be easily applied to other computers.
In a terminal, run: git diff master > 1885.diff
If someone else has already uploaded a file named 1885.diff, then name yours 1885.1.diff, 1885.2.diff, etc.
If running git diff opens a GUI program, then try it again with the --no-ext-diff parameter; e.g., git diff --no-ext-diff master > 1885.diff
