We are a group of volunteers who review and approve themes submitted to be included in the official WordPress Theme directory.
We do license, security, and code quality reviews.
We help build and maintain default themes.
The primary focus of the team is to help theme authors transition to blockBlockBlock is the abstract term used to describe units of markup that, composed together, form the content or layout of a webpage using the WordPress editor. The idea combines concepts of what in the past may have achieved with shortcodes, custom HTML, and embed discovery into a single consistent API and user experience.-based themes.
When a theme is submitted to the theme directory, the information is saved in a ticket system called TracTracTrac is the place where contributors create issues for bugs or feature requests much like GitHub.https://core.trac.wordpress.org/. (Other contributing teams also uses their own Trac ticket systems).
-The ticket system is open to everyone. Everyone who visits can read the information, and everyone who is logged in with their WordPress.orgWordPress.orgThe community site where WordPress code is created and shared by the users. This is where you can download the source code for WordPress core, plugins and themes as well as the central location for community conversations and organization. https://wordpress.org/ account can write messages.
Review queues, also known as reports, are lists of tickets that are sorted by the order they were submitted. The oldest ticket is at the top of the queue, and belongs to the theme that has waited longest.
Tickets can also have different status depending on if they have been reviewed before or not. When a theme has been added to the directory, the ticket status is set to “live” and the ticket is removed from the queue.
