BP Dev Chat Summary: February 26, 2020

6.0.0 Progress

@espellcaste shared about the work he’s been doing about improving the BP REST API (activity scope, member type, group type, friendship). The last issue we need to deal with is the Blogs Avatar endpoint (2 unit tests are failing mysteriously). @im4th will give it a second look before next dev-chat.

@dcavins & @im4th didn’t find the time to work on #8139 & #8048 😬

@im4th shared about his wish to solve two tickets (#8156 & #8172) asap to inform the BuddyPress contributors early about the introduced changes. They are now solved, so please make sure to have a look at these 2 posts:

BuddyPress Survey

Open floor

@im4th asked if anyone had an opportunity to look at GitHub actions to see if this was a way to ease the release packaging process. If a BuddyPress contributor could explore it, he’d be very happy 😍

@espellcaste asked about the status #5525 : the testing site is still open for review, but @im4th already found some issues about o2 as soon as it’s not used on the home page of the site. He will work on a fix about it.

@espellcaste shared his worries about the meta ticket related to the BP GraphQL handbook creation for the developer.buddypress.org site. @im4th is confident it will be fixed soon 🤗
