@Ugyen asked if there’ll be a 5.9.3 release before 6.0, @audrasjb confirmed 5.9.3 release in the upcoming weeks.

@pbearne refreshed the @covers PR

@hellofromtonya agreed to move forward with the batch approach to make a review and commit process easier for this big PR

@tykoted joined his first meeting

@hellofromtonya reminded about the need of having one or two people that would lead the Test Handbook project. Together with @boniu91 agreed that summary post will be a good place to promote this opportunity.

@justinahinon described that moving e2e tests to Playwright in GutenbergGutenberg The Gutenberg project is the new Editor Interface for WordPress. The editor improves the process and experience of creating new content, making writing rich content much simpler. It uses ‘blocks’ to add richness rather than shortcodes, custom HTML etc. https://wordpress.org/gutenberg/ is going quite well. He’s also working together with @juhise on moving existing tests to Playwright

@hellofromtonya reminded why we are in the process of switching to the Playwright

@pbearne offered Tugboat as a tool that could help the Test Team, he’ll provide more details soon.

Test Team is looking for a volunteer or two as lead(s) to shepherd Test Handbook forward. If you’re interested in this role, please leave a meesage.
