Summary for March 18th Support Team Meeting


Check out the project contributor handbook announcement, which also includes a Code of Conduct and Code of Ethics, both of which will supplement the support areas greatly.

The support team will be doing another ticket triage on Saturday March 20th, 2021,21:00 UTC. This one will be slightly different as we will be discussing and prioritizing tickets that you the user bring forth and feel is important. This is in no way a guarantee that your ticket will get done first, but rather a way to try and judge which items others think are important. Understandably not everyone can participate, so it is also OK to drop a ticket in a reply to this post, but you should then also include a reason why you think the ticket(s) are important and why they should be prioritized.

WordPress 5.7

As with most releases, there’s been a few issues for users, most of which have been self contained and resolvable in each individual scenario. Some recurring issues have been discovered, but these have all been addressed with tickets on core trac.

All in all, this has been a very smooth release so far (*knock on wood*).

Checking in with international liaisons

It’s been a while since we did an update like this here on the make blog, so it felt appropriate we do one again!

We had contributors from many parts of the world join us for our weekly little chat, none had any major issues to report, both in general and relating to the recently released WordPress 5.7, but it was great to hear from so many and be able to check in and see how everyone is doing.

Open floor

GiveWP hosted a panel on fighting online harassment in WordPress right after our weekly meeting, in which many members of our team were listening in, once the panel is published, we’ll drop a link for you all to watch it as well.
With that in mind though, please do not hesitate to reach out either in the #forums Slack channel, or directly through a private message, if you at any point feel unsafe or mistreated in any way, and we’ll do what we can to help.

And in closing, we provided you all with a little musical adventure, a composition by Philter called Miyazaki Mountain
