WordPress 5.5 theme changes

Do you have any questions about theme-related changes in 5.5 or a change you would like to discuss?

Has the information about the changes been helpful, or how can the information and reach be improved?

Suggesting theme related core tickets for 5.6

A call for tickets to focus on for 5.6 has been posted. Component Maintainers have been asked:

What tickets of yours do you think will be ready to ship in 5.6 and need some review/feedback/approval/etc?

We have a limited time to suggest tickets. Please consider carefully if you would also be able to contribute to the tickets. Your help would be appreciated.

There are currently 190 Core Trac issues for the theme component:

Only one ticket is on the 5.6 milestone. There are many ways the team could contribute to triaging these tickets.
