Office Hours Recap (September 6)

The office hours are held every Tuesday at 17:00 UTC in the #glotpress channel of the WordPress Slack team.

Attendees: @gregross, @swissspidy, @samuelsidler, @sergey, @petya, @ocean90


  • Office hours are starting again. @ocean90 is back from his job as Release Lead for WordPress.
  • @gregross mentioned that 2.2 has been pushed a couple of times so a new release date is needed.
  • The milestone for 2.2 has been reviewed:
    • Focus of 2.2: An improved scripts/styles handling and some other bug fixes.
    • Global glossaries require more discussion and have been punted.
    • Low prio schema changes have been punted.
    • @gregross has worked on a PR for an uninstall routine.
      • The idea remains in the milestone but the PR needs some improvements like OOP.
    • A new schedule for 2.2 has been defined:
      • September 14th, 2016 Beta 1
      • September 21st, 2016 RC 1
      • September 28th, 2016 Final
  • For the next releases @ocean90 proposed to try 2 month cycles. Each release should have one focus on which all contributors can work on.
  • A possible roadmap defines such focuses:
  • The reason why design is after the REST API: An UI (React, AngularJS, etc) which is powered by the REST API. 💥 Goals would be to enhance mobile experience and less page reloads.
  • It was mentioned that the ‘Tested up to’ for GlotPress needs to be updated on
  • The old GlotPress Trac is now read-only. All development happens on the GitHub repo.
  • @petya will talk to Marko about so the team can use it.
