Tide Chat Summary: July 23rd

This post summarizes the Tide chat meeting from July 23rd 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.


  • 8 issues in the milestone
  • Looking for help from the community on the caching and rate limit issues
  • Upgrade of WP version would be helpful for someone from the community to figure out what changed in the REST API from 4.9 to 5.0 that is keeping us from upgrading
  • @valendesigns to review pkg#19, test with some audits, and add test coverage
  • Cloud migration to new GCP organization underway, taking GCP support a bit longer than expected but progressing regardless

Next meeting

The next meeting will take place on July 30, 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.
