Updates from Working Groups

Only Working Groups that provided updates are shown below.


@chaion07 highlighted these two proposals that might be worth looking in to.


  • Today, there was a brief pause on tickets milestoned for 5.9 due to the reviewing of the Awaiting Review queue. It may be worth having an extra bug scrub considering we’re quickly approaching the release deadlines. There will be an extra bug scrub on Wednesday, October 27, 2021 at 16:00 UTC.
  • Currently, there is also not an Accessibility Release Coordinator for 5.9. See the related Slack message here. Please message @audrasjb if you would like to volunteer or have further questions about the role. @alexstine offered to take this role if one other person would assist.




While there were no updates from the Themes group today, it is likely time to start allocating some focus to the new Twenty Twenty-Two theme. This Twenty Twenty-Two GitHub Issue is currently tracking accessibility.

Open floor

Just a reminder to vote on which meeting time will work best for you. The poll will remain open until Friday, October 29, 2021 16:30 UTC.
