Tide Chat Summary: May 21st

This post summarizes the Tide chat meeting from May 21st 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.


  • Down to 8 items open in the milestone
  • Two good first issue items for folks looking to get into contributing to Tide (wptide#100 & wptide#178); we would welcome a PR for either of those!
  • @valendesigns was able to fix the build for wp-tide-api that was failing
  • Initial deploy to App Engine included all the theme changes but another deploy is needed to include the updated images for all the servers, which includes WPCS 2.1.1 support for PHPCS
  • @valendesigns also tried to upgrade to WP 5.2 in the API image but had to rollback locally otherwise most of the tests fail for wp-tide-api plugin
  • Appears to be a bug that is caused by a change on the .ORG side where it seems the download URL for specific versions of themes/plugins no longer works. If we’re not able to track down how to get access to the archives, then we will need to add SVN support to the PHPCS server to checkout the correct version of the code.
  • Right now it appears that only the most recent version of a plugin/theme is available to download.
  • So if someone from the Plugin or Meta team is around that knows how to access the plugin/theme archives that would be awesome!

Next meeting

The next meeting will take place on May 28, 2019 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.
