Core Dev Chat Summary for January 27, 2016

Trac Tickets

Comment syncing between activity and post comments for Custom Post Types (#6842)  @im4th needed to run an upgrade routine to add a new activity meta to activities about a blog post and consulted whether he could do this using a regular upgrade routine or wait for #6841 to be fixed to committed to core.  @boonebgorges, @djpaulgibbs, @johnjamesjacoby, @rayisme, and @dcavins joined in the discussion to find the optimal solution in the upgrade routine. @im4th also suggested using a dynamic meta_key so that he could avoid the upgrade routine. Update: @im4th has uploaded a new patch which shows that using the dynamic meta_key can avoid an upgrade routine🙂

Profile/Cover image upload doesn’t work in MS Edge browser (#6846) Update: @im4th just committed to trunk and 2.4 branch so this one’s fixed already🙂

Email API and customisation features (#6592)  @djpaulgibbs has started committing section by organized section of this cool new feature last week (Jan. 27). Dev feedback welcome.
