Tide Chat Summary: August 14th

This post summarizes the Tide chat meeting from August 14th 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.

1.0.0 planning

  • 1.0.0-beta announced earlier this summer, beginning discussion on items worth including in release candidate(s) and an eventual release of Tide 1.0.0
  • Likely to include upgrade to WPCS v1.0+, polish docs, complete API to integrate with .ORG, update API to note which version of the standard the audit used
  • Will use next week tidechat time slot to scrub GitHub issues and label items ideally within the 1.0.0 release

Theme and plugin rulesets

  • Important to begin working on expanding to specific rulesets for plugins and themes so that we’re not just using the full WordPress Core ruleset when auditing plugins and themes
  • This is something we’re looking to the community to help with and hope that we can get direct feedback and assistance from the Plugin and Theme Review teams
  • If you have interest and availability to assist on this, then please reach out in #tide or ping @jeffpaul or @valendesigns directly
  • See proof of concept from @jrf as well as talk where she demo-ed the concept, this is a great starting point for these custom rulesets
  • In order to release Tide 1.0.0 we want to include a custom ruleset

Next meeting

The next meeting (note focus on bugscrub) will take place on August 21, 2018 at 20:00 UTC in the #tide Slack channel. Please feel free to drop in with any updates or questions. If you have items to discuss but cannot make the meeting, please leave a comment on this post so that we can take them into account.
