Meeting notes for 2017 December 12

Meeting [ link ]. A Slack account is needed to view the archives.

Items discussed:

  • Christmas priority queue
    • Deadline for submitting seasonal themes is December 20th.
    • This gives a fair chance for all tickets to be reviewed prior to Christmas.
  • 1 theme / month limit
    • It was clarified that this limit applies to all themes submitted by an author.
      Seasonal themes are exempt from this rule.
  • No longer allow ticket swapping
    • Ticket swapping is no longer allowed.
    • Ticket swapping is where an author requests for a different theme to be reviewed instead of the theme that was picked up for review.
    • In these cases the original ticket was closed and the review continued in the new ticket.
  • Improving message to authors when a ticket is closed as not-approved
    • A template response can be found here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1IoePkAt33eWDTsV8Xcp-gHM4_pgMnibSPizVP2MoffM/edit
  • Tide
    • We are continuing to monitor progress with Tide to get a better understanding of how it will impact the future review process.
    • It was proposed that we continue to maintain Theme Review plugin till the point we know how tide works.
