Support Team Meeting Updates for June 7th

General announcements

The Health Check plugin (the tool used for providing support, both by our volunteers but also by theme and plugin authors) is preparing to release version 1.1.0, and as such the files are ready to be translated. If you are a polyglot we welcome you to help out with translations!

WordPress 4.9.6

No new issues, that aren’t already known in some way, have been noticed.

We also see that with the exception of confusion about the comment checkbox not always being present, users aren’t having many issues with the new privacy tools.

Checking in with international liaisons

The Italian, Serbian, Swedish, Brazilian, RussianGerman and Spanish representatives let us know that things are looking good in the wider world!

Open floor

The next batch of volunteer badges will be assigned when the ones responsible for it return from their break, until then just make sure to keep the volunteer spreadsheet up to date. (Are you an international representative and don’t know about it, please send a Direct Message to @clorith and he will get you sorted).

Image embeds are still only restricted to embeds from the CloudUp service, we will likely re-introduce support for imgur at some point as well.

Mobile Team Update – June 5th

WordPress iOS and Android version 10.2 have been released for beta testing.
Sign up here to join the beta program on iOS or follow this link on your Android device, tap on Become a beta tester.

In the last two weeks the team has worked on:

  • Save for Later: Users can now save posts in the Reader by tapping the bookmark icon on a post. Saved posts will be available in the Saved Posts list. The text of the saved posts is available when offline too (images aren’t guaranteed to be available offline in this initial release). Note: Saved Posts is currently a device-specific feature, which means that saved posts aren’t synced between devices or the web, and will be lost in case of logging out or uninstalling the app.
  • Support for displaying GIF images has gained some additional improvements.
  • [iOS] Fix an issue with internationalized domain names during login (issue).
  • [iOS] Fix for geo location display problems in some localizations (issue).
  • A lot of work on improving Aztec’s compatibility with Gutenberg.
  • Some progress on the Aztec React Native component.

Plugin Team Update – 4 June 2018

At the first of the month, all plugins that were pending 6 months with no reply to a review were rejected. Also, plugins that had gone 12 months without completion were also rejected.

In addition, plugins that have never been used, and never had any code committee to SVN at all, are being cleaned up, causing the high number of closed. We’re down to 7000 plugins never used.

Marketing Team Update – May 30, 2018

Our vision for the Marketing Team is to be the go-to resource on strategy and content for other WordPress teams  — that means you.

For those who want to join the team, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed. If you have any questions or feel lost (all of us do at some point), please feel free to ping any of us in Slack. We’re here to help guide and mentor you. We meet in Slack every Wednesday morning at 8:00 a.m. Pacific Time as a catch up on our tasks. However, anyone can chat in our Slack channel about anything at any time.

We use our weekly slack meeting to focus on updates to the tasks that currently exist in Trello.

We are excited about the upcoming Contributor Day at WordCamp Europe. Dwayne, Jen, Yvette and I will all be there to help assist and onboard new people with tasks.

Last Week’s Stats

The top two posts from last week continue to be the jargon glossary and the onboarding guide for Contributor Day. This reinforces our mission to be helpful to the community at large get involved. We are also excited that the case studies continue to be a good resource.

Support Team Meeting Updates for May 31st

WordPress 4.9.6

No unexpected issues with the new release, that aren’t already tracked, have been noticed in our regular places this week.

 

Checking in with international liaisons

We had people joining us from the Pakistani, Serbian, Russian, Brazilian, Italian, Swedish communities during this weeks gathering.

 

On topics of GDPR

As always, we can’t give legal advise but we do see users be confused, especially when it comes to externally loaded assets (such as Google Fonts for example).

As WordPress core doesn’t use a CDN for regular assets, we can inform users of this. We do use it for one case though, emoji, and we can inform them of this exception and that there are plugins available to disable this behavior if they so desire.

Our general stance on GDPR topics is still to not offer any official advise on what users need to be compliant, because our volunteers shouldn’t be held accountable for anything that may relate to legal matters. The general information topic that was posted last week covers this and can be a good asset also for rosetta sites (or for translating if they so desire).
