This is where you can download the source code for WordPress core, plugins and themes as well as the central location for community conversations and organization. https://wordpress.org/.  Once PHP Compatibility is integrated into WordPress.org, we’ll assess the next focus to provide the biggest impact to the community.


  • We went up from 8 to now 10 issues in the milestone
  • @jeffpaul noted that wptide#170 is done once wptide#34 gets through review/merge, otherwise the Tide profile badge post summarizes most of the changes/updates
  • Awaiting update from @FahimMurshed and @SandyGarrido on their separate progress on testing Windows setup as part of wptide#100; if no further progress this month then we’ll punt to a future release
  • @valendesigns worked with @dd32 to setup the data sync from Tide to .org at WCEU, needs to check about adding data from themes after the data sync is validated (@jeffpaul to check on progress on meta#4309 with the MetaMeta Meta is a term that refers to the inside workings of a group.
