7.2.0 Maintenance release

@im4th believes we should package this maintenance release soon. Targeted date is the day before next dev chat (February 16). He asked the team to do some testing of BP Nouveau using the Twenty Twenty-one WordPress theme as the 2 commits added to the 7.2.0 was about improving the BP Nouveau companion stylesheet. Let’s try to improve our default template pack before februry 16. @vapvarun will check it (as well as @im4th).

8.0.0 progress

  • @im4th added a first patch to the ticket about introducing new xProfile field types to manage WordPress fields (description, first & last name, Website) from the front-end member’s profile (#7162). He understood it was very expected by BuddyPress users, so please do test the patch and share your feedbacks and improvements about it.
  • @dcavins updated the swap-atwho-for-Tribute patch he had created before about #8001. It’s working as expected. He will next move the suggestion lookup from wp-ajax to the BP REST API. He’ll post a new patch soon.

Next Dev-Chat

It will happen on February 17 at 19:30 UTC 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!

BP Dev-Chat Agenda: February 3, 2021

Our next #BuddyPress developer meeting is scheduled on February 3 at 19:30 UTC (tomorrow). This will be our first 30 mins long dev-chat since we’ve decided to start 30 mins later and to end at the same time. Let’s try to be on time and as @dcavins suggested, let’s use the comment area of this post to prepare the specific points we want to discuss during our meeting. I’ll start to follow this suggestion by adding one comment as soon as this agenda is published 😉

Here’s our agenda:

  • 7.2.0 Maintenance release
  • 8.0.0 progress

BP Dev-Chat summary: January 20, 2021

8.0.0 Preps

Features whishlist

  • Invitation to join a BuddyPress community (Network invitations #8139)
  • Edit/display WordPress user fields form BP Profiles (#7162)
  • Welcome email on account activation (#8428)
  • BP Mentions @.JS review (#8001)
  • Build/test tools: use GitHub Actions for CI (#8421) & WP PHP Code Standards (#7228)
  • Attachments for BuddyPress (#8022)

Release regularity

We’ve discussed about trying to build a release each four months. There might be downsides doing so such as the time component could become more important than the new code or the quality of it. We’ll see how it works for 8.0.0 before making it a “rule” for this year releases. So here’s the expected schedule for 8.0.0:

  • 8.0.0-beta1: March 31
  • 8.0.0: April 30.

Release lead

This is something we haven’t talked about for the last 2 releases. @im4th checked if one of us was interested in leading the 8.0.0 release. As no one is confident enough about their available spare time to be able to take this responsibility, @im4th will lead “coordinate” this new release 😉.

Dev-chats time

19:00 UTC is not ideal for @im4th during winters but at the same time it’s very late for @vapvarun. So we agreed to make dev-chats end at the same hour 20:00 UTC, but starts 30 minutes later. We’ll simply need to make sure to drop by to add to the agenda/ask questions the day before. So we’ll try to meet each other wednesdays during 30 minutes at 19:30 UTC 🕢. If it doesn’t match our needs, we’ll be able to revert to 🕖

Next Dev-Chat

It will happen on February 3 at 19:30 UTC 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!

BuddyPress 8.0.0’s kick off

Unfortunately, the meeting started 30 mins later than scheduled, so we were not able to talk about all the scheduled points. @johnjamesjacoby congratulated the great work the team has accomplished during the 7.0 development cycle and the recent updates we’ve published on the BuddyPress.org’s blog.

Features / bug fixes wishlist

The call for tickets is now closed (it ended on January 13), the least we can say is it didn’t gather much wishes 😬. @im4th seems to be motivated to progress on the BP Attachments’ front, 8.0.0 might be a good milestone to have some user media feature included into BuddyPress core.

@slaffik shared his concerns about introducing the Activity scheduling feature (#7953). He thinks it should be handled by a BuddyPress plugin rather than be included into Core.

He and @im4th agreed on the fact we should deprecate the BuddyBar into this development cycle (#7729). @rayisme ‘s patch was very close to make it during the 6.0.0 release, let’s have it done!

We then talked about continuous integration and build tools. The Travis CI (.org) shutting down announcement with no specific date is concerning. @im4th has tested the Travis CI (.com) migration with 2 of his free and open source plugins and is now requested to pay for the service after a bunch of builds done. The documentation about the migration seems to be a bit misleading about this subject. @slaffik is going to work on moving to GitHub Actions (#8421) 😍 . He also opened a ticket to modernize our composer.json file (#8420). He and @im4th are thinking we should start working on WP Code Standards (#7228).

Next Dev-Chat

Let’s carry on talking about 8.0.0 during our next dev-chat: it will happen on January 20 at 19:00 UTC 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!
