📒 Agenda

We announced the release of WordPress 6.2 “Dolphy” on March 29, 2023, with built-in Openverse browsing in the “media” tab of the blockBlock Block is the abstract term used to describe units of markup that, composed together, form the content or layout of a webpage using the WordPress editor. The idea combines concepts of what in the past may have achieved with shortcodes, custom HTML, and embed discovery into a single consistent API and user experience. inserter.

The second item on the agenda was whether we should require branches to be up-to-date before merging (the related discussion is in this issue)

A concern was voiced by @sarayourfriend and @aetherunbound that merging PRs would require a lot of wait time if several people are trying to do so at once. It seems like that case would be irrelevant if we also added merge queues. The queue would automatically handle rebasing and ensuring CI/CD passes before merging the code, meaning maintainers would not need to babysit merges if having an updated copy was required. The teams agrees on adding support adding required update if merge queues also accompanied it!

And lastly, a great comment by @sarayourfriend in the Content safety flow design might expand the ticket scope. All your thoughts are welcome.
