Agenda for Discussion

  1. What to do with legacy themes with readme files that don’t match the standard? – Proposed by @joyously
  2. Proposal to remove the TA program. – Proposed by @joyously
  3. Discuss possibilities and ramifications of removing closed tickets to make the name available. – Proposed by @joyously
  4. Suggestion to limit all links in a theme to the Theme URI and Author URI. This includes links to pluginPlugin A plugin is a piece of software containing a group of functions that can be added to a WordPress website. They can extend functionality or add new features to your WordPress websites. WordPress plugins are written in the PHP programming language and integrate seamlessly with WordPress. These can be free in the WordPress.org Plugin Directory https://wordpress.org/plugins/ or can be cost-based plugin from a third-party recommendations, upsells, design services, etc. – Proposed by @greenshady
  5. Revisit/clarify if needed the stance that themes in the directory must be fully functional and complete. They cannot require plugins or users to write code to get a specific design. They must work as a standalone theme. This is meant to be an all-encompassing guideline to cover starters and other blank themes. – Proposed by @greenshady
  6. Demo content should be added using `add_theme_support( ‘starter-content’ )`. No extra .xml files with uncontrollable links or downloading unknown external content. – Proposed by @acalfieri
  7. Idea to create a council/group to judge individual issues (or grey areas) regarding themes. – Proposed by @bothera
  8. Team Lead Interest – We are looking for the replacement of our existing lead @acosmin.
  9. Open Floor
