Announcements 📣

Focal Groups 🧪

@ironprogrammer re-introduced this section as pertaining to Test Team discussions from 2021. Because contributorship has changed a lot since then, he asked that contributors interested in representing a particular focal group reach out to @boniu91 or @ironprogrammer (himself). He also noted that the team can adjust the focal groups to align with current needs, particularly if it would help inspire greater collaboration.


@oglekler noted their positive experience with Cypress, an open-source testing tool which uses Mocha and jQuery, and can be run headless. @ironprogrammer asked if it was compatible with the current WordPress E2E standard, Playwright, and suggested that discussion with other E2E contributors be held to discuss further.

@ironprogrammer suggested that a follow-up Make/Test post be considered to gauge interest on possible focal group rep interest, particularly for E2E.
