I would like to request a Dotorg sandbox in order to test bug fixes and enhancements for learn.wordpress.orgWordPress.org The community site where WordPress code is created and shared by the users. This is where you can download the source code for WordPress core, plugins and themes as well as the central location for community conversations and organization. https://wordpress.org/.
At the moment members of the WordPress training team do have a way to configure a local development environment for testing bug fixes and enhancements, but it doesn’t allow us to easily test those against as close to a copy of the live environment as possible.
This means we have to rely on someone who already has a sandbox to do a final test before we can merge any changes.
To achieve this, I’d like to request a sandbox that does not have svn commit access, meaning I would not be able to commit changes or trigger a deployment, but has write access to the files and folders relevant to learn.wordpress.org so that I could test code changes submitted as PRs on our GitHubGitHub GitHub is a website that offers online implementation of git repositories that can easily be shared, copied and modified by other developers. Public repositories are free to host, private repositories require a paid subscription. GitHub introduced the concept of the ‘pull request’ where code changes done in branches by contributors can be reviewed and discussed before being merged be the repository owner. https://github.com/ repository.
The relevant files and folders are:
A sandbox with this configuration will allow us to perform this final test within the training team, without needing to rely on folks from other teams. DeployingDeploy Launching code from a local development environment to the production web server, so that it's available to visitors. the changes would still require an additional check from a member of the MetaMeta Meta is a term that refers to the inside workings of a group. For us, this is the team that works on internal WordPress sites like WordCamp Central and Make WordPress. team who does have svn commit access.
Please let me know if you have any questions about this request, or if you need anything from me.
