WordPress 6.2 Release Candidate A beta version of software with the potential to be a final product, which is ready to release unless significant bugs emerge. 2
The latest Release Candidate of WordPress 6.2 is available for testing.
Are there changes in 6.2 that we should be aware of that we expect may provide an increased support burden?
Including statistics with weekly updates
Some teams have started including statistics in their weekly updates (some have been doing this for a long time, look for example to the Plugins team).
The support team doesn’t have a lot of publicized statistics at this time, but would that be something we’d like to change to improve transparency?
If yes, what kind of information would be useful to share? Some numbers are easier than others to get, but if the interest is there, we can facilitate the collection of others as well. Those who have been around a while may recall there was a call asking if (and which) public analytics may be useful, so this may be seen as a stepping stone to that.
Checking in with international liaisons
This is the section where we reach out to the non-English speaking parts of our community, to see how they are doing, if there’s anything we can help each other with, or just interesting things going on that it would be nice to share with others.
There’s no requirements for previous participation or “fame” to share here, anyone is welcome, and we encourage newcomers to participate!
Unable to make the meeting, or maybe meetings just aren’t your thing? We would still love to hear how things are going in other non-English speaking parts of our community. Please feel free to let us know via the comment section below, in your own time, if there is anything you’d like to share, any questions or concerns you have, or just to let us know you’re doing OK!
We will make a habit of putting this callout with every agenda post going forward, so that everyone has a chance to join in.
This part of the meeting only happens if there is time, the team aims to cover the pre-planned topics first in any given meeting.
When open floor starts, any topic posted either as a comment to this agenda post will be looked at, or as many as there is time for. If there is still time left after this, then meeting attendees may step forward with questions, comments, remarks, anything relating to the support team that they’d like to handle.
It is also important to note that not everyone is comfortable posting things publicly, there is complete understanding of this, and users are welcome to contact the team representative (@clorith) via direct messages on Slack with whatever they wish the team to look at together.
For any other items to discuss, please add them to the comments below, or bring them up in the meeting.
