Support Team Update – Novemebr 16th

WordPress 4.9

WordPress 4.9 is out, and as is customary a new Master List has been put up on the forums.

As new bugs, gotcha’s and plugin/theme conflicts are discovered we’ll be updating the thread, so keep an eye on it for any new items.

Remember to keep general chatter in #forums on Slack to a minimum for the first 48 hours after a release, this is done to avoid missing information when it’s being shared at a critical point right after a new release.

Checking in with international liaisons

The Russian, Hindi, Italian, German and Spanish communities are having a good time.

Other topics

The next workshop is scheduled for January, more details to follow, but December is a very busy time for a lot of people so it makes sense for this to right over the new years hump.

Marketing Team – November 15, 2017 Update

Hi everyone.

The Marketing Team has four subgroups, each of whom post updates on the Marketing Blog.

For consensus in our meetings, we’ve decided to work on one task and at the 45 minute mark take wish list items. This is helping with the overall flow of meetings.

In today’s meeting we primarily discussed onboarding documentation for contributors since Contributor Day at WCUS is at the forefront of our minds. With that priority, we submitted this trac ticket to meta to create a clear CTA at the top of make.wordpress.org for all teams — to get them on dot org and WordPress Slack. We welcome your feedback on the copy, of course, as well. There is a link to the Google Doc (that’s where the Marketing Team Collaborates) at the bottom of the ticket.

Thank you.

Accessibility Team Update – Nov 13 2017

Transcript in Slack

Planning and focus for WP 5.0

  • Gutenberg, testing an fixing
  • Finishing the first version of the handbook
  • Media tickets (if there is time left)

The handbook

The content of what to do on a WP contributors day in the handbook has been updated.

The work on best practices is in progress. Maja Benke, Sami Keijonen, Rian Rietveld and Stefan Brechbühl are writing. Joe Dolson and William Patton are proof reading and reviewing. We have a deadline of mid January for all draft content but we already publish what is ready and reviewed.

Gutenberg

We’ll test during contributor days. Andrea pointed out that he needs more help testing and fixing. There are still a lot of open issues. We discussed how to solve this, it’s hard to get more people involved.

As for the accessibility test team: most gave up on Gutenberg and there is hardly any useful response anymore. Maybe we started testing too soon. There was a discussion if and how we can use the test server we have on wpaccess.org, without a conclusive outcome.

Open floor

The time of the meetings will be one hour later:

  • Bug scrub: 16:00 UTC
  • Team meeting: 17:00 UTC

Support Team Update – Novemebr 2nd

General announcements

The WordPress 2017 survey is up, help us understand how WordPress is used so we can better align its direction by filling it out, it only takes a few minutes.

Time zones and daylight savings are again showing their faces, a quick tally shows that the current time of 16.00 UTC is still a favorable time for the majority of us, but we’ll do another check at the next gathering when the whole world has finished with these shenanigans.

WordPress 4.9

We’re getting very close to the 4.9 release date, and as such the draft for the master list has gone up as is customary, if there are core changes or gotchas we should prepare for, please provide them as comments on that post.

WordPress 4.9 Master List Draft

As mentioned, release date is growing ever closer, so if possible please help test. Release Candidate (RC) means it should be feature complete and all known bugs are taken care of, so it should be safe to test in any way you can think of at this point.

Checking in with international liaisons

The Russian, Swedish, Spanish, Portuguese and Italian communities stopped by for this weeks meeting. We love to hear feedback from the non-English parts of the community, so if you know someone who’s from a locale we don’t often hear from, feel free to invite them over, there’s value in sharing after all!

Plugin Review Team Status – Nov 6 2017

The high number of rejected is due to end-of-month cleanup for plugins that were reviewed but had no reply within 6 months. Anyone who did reply to a review got a reminder email. Since they can’t submit another new plugin while the ones are pending, this is more of a hardship for them than us.

All plugins are reviewed within 7 business days of submission. If you didn’t get a review, check your spam.
