April 26th Meeting Notes

We had another great meeting today Read the meeting transcript in the Slack archives. (A Slack account is required)

Theme Check updates

There are many open issues in need of patches. Please get involved if you’re a theme author, reviewer, or just like to write code.

Theme Check is our automated tool for handling theme submissions. The better we make it, the more automated the process becomes, which helps speed up the review process. Please help. There are plenty of open tickets.

Proposal of custom-logo tag

Because the new tags were discussed months ago, core WP didn’t yet have the custom logo feature. We decided today to make a Trac Ticket to propose the custom-logo tag.

Ongoing process for updating tags

We need a process that will allow us to continually improve and refine the tags available to themes. We’ve decided to do a “tags review” every January. This way, maybe we won’t have to wait for years between updates to the tags.

Note: More info on upcoming tag changes will be posted soon.

Themes with fatal errors

On occasion, a theme might get set live with a fatal error. At the moment, we’ll deal with these on a case-by-case basis. This is something we should discuss further in next week’s meeting.

Review videos

If you’re interested in doing review videos, post in the comments below or on the Slack channel. @thinkupthemes has some ideas.
