2017 Kick-off Meeting on January 10th @ 17:00 UTC

Hello and Happy New Year everyone!

It was a bit quiet the last few weeks and it’s time to get the ball rolling again. We’ll start with our weekly meetings on January 10th at 17:00 UTC. Please mark this date in you calendar and join us in the #glotpress channel on Slack.

Office Hours Recap (September 13)

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

Log: https://wordpress.slack.com/archives/glotpress/p1473786115000207
Attendees: @gregattoolstack, @swissspidy, @samuelsidler, @sergey, @petya, @ocean90

Notes

  • The milestone for 2.2 has been reviewed, it’s 80% completed.
  • @ocean90 found two issues while testing:
  • @gregattoolstack is going to review and track them down.
  • The PR for the Hausa locale information needs a refresh. Since @petya can’t handle that at the moment @ocean90 will submit the new PRs.
  • Issue #479 for an uninstall routine has been discussed.
    • The current PR isn’t ready for a merge.
    • gp_uninstall()⁠⁠⁠⁠ should looks good.
    • For the $wp_settings property a better name should be identified.
    • @ocean90 suggest inline settings because just having one option on a admin page feels odd.
      • The feedback was mostly against this idea.
    • It was decided that for 2.2 no admin page with just one option gets added.
  • Major refactors like #540 should be discussed first in the Slack channel to avoid working on things which may not get merged.

 

If you couldn’t attend the office hours, feel free to leave a comment here or in #glotpress and let us know what you think about some of topics or if you’d like to see something else discussed.

See you next week!

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.

Log: https://wordpress.slack.com/archives/glotpress/p1473181218000016
Attendees: @gregross, @swissspidy, @samuelsidler, @sergey, @petya, @ocean90

Notes

  • 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 https://wordpress.org/plugins/glotpress/.
  • The old GlotPress Trac is now read-only. All development happens on the GitHub repo.
  • @petya will talk to Marko about https://twitter.com/glotpress so the team can use it.

 

If you couldn’t attend the office hours, feel free to leave a comment here or in #glotpress and let us know what you think about some of topics or if you’d like to see something else discussed.

See you next week!
