  • @10upsimon Regarding “Enhancing the WP Scripts API with a Loading Strategy”:
    • Holistic code review has been completed by several WPP team members
    • Feedback has been provided within the draft PR and feedback is being transformed into GitHub issues
    • Some of these issues have work already underway against them
    • Consensus is a positive attitude all around toward the end result overall
    • Functional testing has been complete, but is being extended slightly so that testing is done alongside some key performance plugins. This is mostly to aid documentation (planning) efforts and validate earlier findings
    • Documentation plans are underway and being drafted, which include inline and core documentation (as well as core community comms)

  • @joegrainger We have completed Architectural Review and QA for the initial infrastructure of the Plugin Checker. We’ve created a number of issues to tackle the improvements and bugs that came out of the testing which we will be working through over the next couple of weeks. Progress can be seen on the GitHub repo here. Feel free to take a look and leave any thoughts/ideas you may have in the repo. Thanks!
