📒 Agenda

  • Over the weekend (February 18th-19th), we merged the APIAPI An API or Application Programming Interface is a software intermediary that allows programs to interact with each other and share data in limited, clearly defined ways. and the frontend into our main `WordPress/openverse` repo, making it a monorepo. We’re currently buffing out the rough edges, updating documentation, and refining our processes, but the monorepo is very functional.
  • Considering this, we will stop development on the WordPress/openverse-api and WordPress/openverse-frontend repos and continue all of it in WordPress/openverse.
  • Soon, we will be migrating any open issues and rebasing any open PRs, finally culminating in archiving the old API and frontend repos.
