The goal going forward

The goals for the near future are:

  • Comparing the theme and plugin review processes to see how we can work towards a goal of making both processes very similar so that any improvements made to one will also profit the other.
  • Put a team together to tackle the theme previews as this is a major issue. Ask Matt to put resources towards this.
  • Automation is still a priority to catch common issues and giving us more confidence that themes cannot be shipped that give sites a white screen of death.
  • Define the minimum requirements that need to be manually reviewed for the themes to be hosted on
    • Licensing
    • Security Issues
    • PHPPHP PHP (recursive acronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor) is a widely-used open source general-purpose scripting language that is especially suited for web development and can be embedded into HTML. Errors
    • Illegal
    • Dishonest
    • Morally offensive
    • Egregious issues that we haven’t listed
    • AccessibilityAccessibility Accessibility (commonly shortened to a11y) refers to the design of products, devices, services, or environments for people with disabilities. The concept of accessible design ensures both “direct access” (i.e. unassisted) and “indirect access” meaning compatibility with a person’s assistive technology (for example, computer screen readers). ( Reviews will be done after the themes go live.
  • Agreeing to try out a way to get more feedback from users on different aspects of themes and using the extra data on the theme to rank them appropriately in the repository.
