Tide Chat Summary: February 20th

This post summarizes the Tide chat meeting from February 20th in the #tide Slack channel (agenda, Slack archive).

Reminder that the current Tide focus is integrating PHP Compatibility data from Tide into WordPress.org. Once PHP Compatibility is integrated into WordPress.org, we’ll assess the next focus to provide the biggest impact to the community.

WordPress-specific PHPCompatibility standard

Reliability of sniffs

  • @rheinardkorf began process of refactoring the Audit Server in Go and noticed some anomalies in the PHPCompatibility standard (grammar used in messaging has been inconsistent), while waiting for a fix he wrote a parser to understand the messages which then generated a compatibility map for the audit server
  • Results should now be more accurate and inclusive of versions below or above the reported version that violates a sniff (e.g., some features work only on 5.3 but no other version)
  • @rheinardkorf to release the tests and mapping to `wptide/pkg` repo shortly, this is a Go library with tools being used for the Go driven services with the Sync Server as the first one to adopt the package and the new Audit Server will as well

PHP compatibility integration planning

  • If you have additional tasks that you see as necessary ahead of final integration of PHP Compatibility details on WordPress.org, then please reach out to @jbpaul17 (@jeffpaul on Slack).

WCEU Contributor Day

  • @milana_cap organizing WCEU Contributor Day and looking to see if Tide plans to participate
  • Please comment on this post or share in #tide if you’re planning to attend WCEU and have interest and ability to help lead a group contributing to Tide
