July 26th Support Team Meeting Summary

WordPress 4.9.7

As we’re nearing the release of 4.9.8, we’re happy to see that no new issues have sprung up in that time.

WordPress 4.9.8

WordPress 4.9.8 is scheduled for release on July 31st, this is early next week. We’re currently able to test Release Candidate 1 (we may see a 2nd one before the release), so if you are able to, please help test it.

In preparation, for 4.9.8, and the Gutenberg callout in core, we would like to see who’s available to help out specifically in the Gutenberg plugin support section. We do ask that you’ve used Gutenberg a little and are familiar with it for this, since users may need guidance. Please leave a DM on Slack for @clorith, and he’ll be able to see what kind of coverage we have. We don’t need 24/7 instant replies, but if we can avoid users sitting for a full day (or days) without a response that would be great.

If you do help out, please use the Also Viewing script that the support team uses, it helps avoid multiple people answering the same topics. We want to avoid the feeling of being “piled on” in a topic, it’s better to let each person do their thing when possible unless they seek extra help.

Checking in with international liaisons

Representatives from the Swedish, Serbian, Italian, Russian and Dutch communities were reporting in and are having a good time.
