Theme Review Team Update for 11/26

Two main things to report for the Theme Review Team.

First, we have begun discussion of the periodic Guidelines revision that takes place with each major WordPress release. All revisionsRevisions The WordPress revisions system stores a record of each saved draft or published update. The revision system allows you to see what changes were made in each revision by dragging a slider (or using the Next/Previous buttons). The display indicates what has changed in each revision. take effect 30 days after final release of the new WordPress version.

Second, I am working with a few people on some initial communication/planning for creating a review checklist, and other improvements to the Theme review workflow/information, to help lower the learning curve for performing reviews.

Also, a question for the Docs team about the Theme Review Handbook: just to clarify, what will be the intended use of the handbook? Is it going to be a “here’s how to get involved” guide, or is it intended to replace the existing Guidelines or other TRT material? I want to make sure that we’re supporting your efforts to the best of our ability.

Please let me know what additional information you would like to see included in these updates. I used to publish Theme review stats, but they ended up not being particularly enlightening or useful, especially considering the time and effort involved in compiling them.
