Recap of Ticket Scrub for the week of July 31st

Great attendance for our first-ever ticket scrub!

The next Ticket Scrub meeting will be in two weeks, 2017-08-15 19:00 UTC, in #meta-wordcamp.

Here is a summary of this week’s discussion:


This patch makes some significant changes to the Instagram source in the Tagregator plugin to accommodate changes to the Instagram API. The current patch submitted by @xkon uses raw cURL commands, which is not ideal for compatibility. The suggested change was to try using `wp_remote_get` or `wp_remote_post` instead. @ryelle volunteered to help test this and other Tagregator patches. (#2100-meta, #3003-meta)


This ticket has a patch from @rmarks that partially addresses the issue. @coreymckrill said he would try to get that patch committed, and suggested fixes for other parts of the issue should go in a separate patch.


We discussed the patch for this ticket recently submitted by @grappleulrich. One aspect of the patch was to prevent users from publishing posts while Coming Soon mode is enabled, so that site subscribers wouldn’t get an email notification of a new post that might be incomplete and that they wouldn’t actually be able to access. As a group, we agreed that disabling the Publish button would actually be confusing and that there are times when you might want to publish a post while still in Coming Soon mode. Instead, we decided to change the approach so that email notifications are disabled in Coming Soon mode, and there is a warning near the Publish button to notify users that their post won’t be emailed to subscribers if they publish while still in Coming Soon mode.


This is an old ticket with an old patch. We agreed that the feature described would still be useful, but the patch probably needs to be updated before it will be compatible with the current version of CampTix. @coreymckrill said he would move the ticket over to the CampTix GitHub repo.

If you were unable to attend this meeting but have feedback, please share your thoughts in the comments on this post. In case there’s a need for further discussion we will ensure to make time for it in the next meeting. See you next time!
