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.


Open floor

  • Preparing for WCUS Contributor DayContributor Day Contributor Days are standalone days, frequently held before or after WordCamps but they can also happen at any time. They are events where people get together to work on various areas of https://make.wordpress.org/ There are many teams that people can participate in, each with a different focus. https://2017.us.wordcamp.org/contributor-day/ https://make.wordpress.org/support/handbook/getting-started/getting-started-at-a-contributor-day/., we now have the Contributor Day label for issues well-suited for that day
  • If you have issues you’ve been waiting to open, then please look to do those here in October so we can consider tagging more for the WCUS Contributor Day to ensure folks who show up have something they can help with on Tide.
  • @valendesigns and @jeffpaul to focus on meeting with other Make teams to see how they can leverage the data in the WP.org UIUI UI is an acronym for User Interface - the layout of the page the user interacts with. Think ‘how are they doing that’ and less about what they are doing. and how else Tide might help them; then turning that info into a longer term roadmap
  • @kkoppenhaver to help with new contributor onboarding / assisting folks with questions on Contributor Day-labeled issues
