Review team’s activities during WordPress 5.7 Alpha

Beta1 was released Tuesday. Let’s look back to see what went well, what didn’t go well, and what to improve on next time.

  • It was agreed that working groups did help and should be used in the future.
  • It is important to have one referent per working group.

Plan activities for WordPress 5.7 Beta

  • Gutenberg accessibility testing. Checking the done tickets in General checks to make sure new features/fixed issues did not result in accessibility regressions.
  • Provide pre-release accessibility testing instructions for main features in Gutenberg. Fit as much in to end to end tests as possible.
  • WordPress updated color scheme checking.
