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 this is done, the contributors need a theme to review.
-Normally when someone starts reviewing a theme, they are assigned to a ticket in the themes TracTracTrac is the place where contributors create issues for bugs or feature requests much like GitHub.https://core.trac.wordpress.org/., they post a review, and wait up to seven days for the theme author to reply.
We know that this format may not be suitable for a contributor day where the time is limited and where contributors may want to meet and try different teams during the day.
-Contributors should not be expected to complete a full review or to feel pressured into having to continue working on their ticket after the contributor day is over.
We recommend that you either:
Select a theme from the top of the queue, and review the theme together as a group. Make sure that everyone is included in the discussions.
Let contributors pick a theme each from the queue, but without being assigned to the ticket. By leaving the ticket status as new they will be able to add the result of their review, but will not need to do the follow up review. Contributors can also pair up and review a theme together.
Let contributors request a theme to review via the Theme Review SlackSlackSlack is a Collaborative Group Chat Platform https://slack.com/. The WordPress community has its own Slack Channel at https://make.wordpress.org/chat/. channel. -Depending on who is online to see the request, this may take some time, so we encourage organizers to prepare ahead of time and request a couple of tickets to review before the contributor day starts.
Trac tickets that have been assigned during a contributor day will often need to be reassigned, so we would like to ask that you create a list of 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/ usernames (or a list of ticket numbers) and send them via slack to either:
We would love to hear what we can improve to help contributors get started, if you are able to write down frequently asked questions about the process, the requirements or anything else, that would be very helpful.
