Hello screen & BuddyPress 2020 survey
The ticket for the Hello Screen has been created on Trac (#8270). @im4th started the meeting by asking feedbacks about it. @IAmTheWebb after a brain to html conversion of the patch thinks it looks good. A screenshot of the Hello Screen has been added to the ticket to ease this conversion 😅. @im4th also said there was a placeholder to insert the link to the BuddyPress Survey 2020.
@mercime volunteered to draft the 6.0.0 changelog 😍. She already prepared a first version of it using @rayisme‘s BP Changelog. Here’s the link to its preview if some of us wants to give a hand to fine tune it.
BP REST API documentation updates
@im4th shared the GH issue we can use to follow our progress about this task. He said he would take care of documenting the 6 new endpoints as the process to create new documentation pages using the BP REST API inline documentation is a pain to complete. He just finished adding these 6 new documentation page today (April 29). We still need to check all the other endpoints are up to date with latest BP REST API improvements.
Discussions about 6.0.0-RC1 & 6.0.0 schedule
At the time of the dev-chat there was 3 tickets in the milestone’s queue. As @IAmTheWebb noticed the ticket about the removal of the Legacy BuddyBar (#7729) was needing some extra time to be fixed during this release, so @im4th moved it to next major release. @im4th said he would take a deeper look to the ticket about the privacy data introduced in WP 5.4 (#8266). He did so 40 hours ago and decided to also move this ticket to next major release.
We agreed on a new schedule to leave 2 weeks between RC1 and final release so that translation contributors can help us making BuddyPress 6.0.0 available in as many language as possible. So here it is:
- 6.0.0 RC1: April 29 (in a few hours 🏃♀️🏃♂️)
- 6.0.0: May 14
@im4th started by saying a big “TY” to @boonebgorges who packaged the 5.2 maintenance and security release the day before the dev-chat.
About #meta-5141 @mercime suggested to add a new page on BuddyPress.org to introduce our two documentation resources (The Codex & Developer site). @im4th agreed it was a great idea.
Next dev chat
It will happen on May 6 at 19:00 UTC (a week before final release) and of course in #BuddyPress. If you have ideas or questions, feel free (and we are strongly encouraging you) to comment this summary to share them!
