In open floor, @poena shared a link where we are looking for renaming the “theme unit test”. If you think you can suggest a good name, there is an open issue on GitHub.

@aristath said, For full-site editing, we are currently exploring ideas in a discussion on GitHub.
I would like to urge theme-authors to bring solutions to the table if there are any, or things that should be taken into account for the templating system.

There are two FSEFSE Short for Full Site Editing, a project for the Gutenberg plugin and the editor where a full page layout is created using only blocks. themes in the queue and among them, one theme will go live soon. It has some minor issues to be fixed by the author.

Theme Check plugin still needs to be updated to allow FSE themes but is held back by the lack of requirements. We are all eager but if we start building checks too soon before FSE is stable enough we are going to need to redo the checks over and over. @poena added during the meeting.
