  • After a discussion in yesterday’s chat, the consensus is to leave handbook comments open until it’s deemed “complete”.
  • With all of the incoming Post Formats stuff in 3.6, we’re opting to split the Post Formats Codex page in two, one for users, one for developers.
  • Adopt-a-Codex-Page continues on full steam. Lots of contributors doing great work sprucing up those pages.

Next week

The display indicates what has changed in each revision., Post Locking (new), Menus and Post Formats Codex pages. The goal is have them completed in time for the 3.6 release.
