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.
