1.0.0

1.0.0

  • Still continues to have 8 open issues in the milestone with also two good first issue items in there for folks who are new to Tide and looking to contribute
  • For Windows users, we’d love some help on wptide#100
  • For those comfortable with API work, we’d love some help on wptide#178
  • Some other non-1.0.0 issues related to the docs site that are also helpful for new contributors to help with
  • In general, going through the local setup instructions and calling out any discrepancies or issues you run into is also massively helpful. This ensures that others have as good an on-boarding experience as possible with Tide.
  • @fahimmurshed reviewing Windows local setup instructions, will follow up with any issues/updates

General announcements

  • Sharing a callout from @chanthaboune on the Team Lead Interest Post over on the Make/Updates blog; if you’re interested in learning more about team leadership, then please give that a read

  • Some items in the docs repo that aren’t targeted for the 1.0.0 release, but are otherwise helpful things to tackle

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.

1.0.0-rc

  • 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!
