Tide Chat, Office Hours, Holiday Schedule

Note that we’ll have Tide office hours this week (Tuesday, December 18th), then off for two weeks for the holidays, then back with office hours (Tuesday, January 8th), and hopefully back to a full Tidechat schedule by Tuesday, January 15th.

We will be mainly focused on GitHub issues in the 1.0.0-beta2 and 1.0.0 milestones, but otherwise will be around for general announcements.

WCUS Contributor Day

This past weekend we had a handful of folks join us at the Tide table at WordCamp US Contributor Day. Thanks to @valendesigns for helping lead our efforts and to @kkoppenhaver, @croixhaug, @pwtyler, @shadyvb, Charlie Tranen, and @cathibosco1 for contributing their time and efforts to improving Tide!

During the morning and afternoon sessions, we achieved the following:

  • Got new contributors setup and running with Tide locally
  • Resolved some bugs found while getting folks setup and were able to get those merged as well
  • The local install docs (see updates coming in PR#173) are now much more concise and complete for macOS, which was a blocker for 1.0.0 and getting PHP Compatibility results into .ORG
  • With help from the Design, Marketing, and Meta teams we Made progress on the official Tide Dashicon, and hope to see that become available during one of the first few 5.0.x minor releases
  • With help from the Design team we started to define the terms “team” vs “contributor” so we can start to credit people’s .ORG profiles with applicable Tide badges

Next up for Tide is completing issues tagged for 1.0.0-beta2 so that we have an endpoint for .ORG to sync PHP Compatibility results from and then eventually for 1.0.0 to release and begin work with Meta to display the PHP Compatibility data for plugins and themes on the .ORG repository.

No Tide Chat, Attend Contributor Day Instead

With folks traveling for WCUS this week, we’re planning on skipping Tidechat.  If you happen to be around, then by all means drop by #tide for office-hours to chat with any others who are around.

@valendesigns and @jeffpaul will both be at the Tide table at Contributor Day this Sunday at WCUS, so stop by if you’re around and say hi!

Repo deletion

  • Reminder that we decommissioned several repos for the alpha version of Tide from WCUS 2017 and we’ll be deleting those repos shortly, see:
    • https://github.com/wptide/api/issues/9
    • https://github.com/wptide/lighthouse-server/issues/3
    • https://github.com/wptide/sync-server/issues/17
    • https://github.com/wptide/audit-server/issues/26

  • Please call out any questions or concerns about fully deleting those repos here, in #tide, or on the issues linked above

Setup and testing feedback

  • When testing the Tide local setup, use this branch as it addresses the issue where the Lighthouse image was failing to build
  • Looking for feedback (ideally via GitHub issues) from anyone who has been able to attempt the setup and running of Tide locally
  • For those who get the time to run through the local setup and can provide feedback (positive or negative), then we’d appreciate the contribution!

1.0.0 planning

  • As noted last week (and the week before), the GitHub repo is setup with 1.0.0 and Future Release release labels, will continue to work through the 1.0.0 items and  appreciate any additional contributions on those labeled issues

Repo decommissioning + deleting

  • As noted previously, we decommissioned several repos for the alpha version of Tide from WCUS 2017 and have opened issues noting that we’ll be actually deleting those repos shortly, namely:
    • https://github.com/wptide/api/issues/9
    • https://github.com/wptide/lighthouse-server/issues/3
    • https://github.com/wptide/sync-server/issues/17
    • https://github.com/wptide/audit-server/issues/26
    • https://github.com/wptide/tide-local/issues/14
  • Note that none of those repos are still relevant to the 1.0.0-beta version of Tide and can cause confusion when people view those repos while trying to setup and run Tide locally
  • Please call out any questions or concerns about fully deleting those repos here or on the issues linked above
