bbPress dev chat summary Jan 9, 2013

We started of in the new #bbpress-dev dedicated channel for core talk albeit a little later than normal due to a schedule conflict with #wordpress-dev, more on that later.

It was a rather quiet chat this week as there were only three of us, @johnjamesjacoby, @jmdodd and myself @netweb. As ‘rez-bot’ had not yet joined #bbpress-dev there’s no irc log this week, here’s the highlights.

  • @JJJ kicked things off by punting some of the big tickets to 2.4 which leaves us with this lot for 2.3 and on schedule for a Jan 31 release.
  • @jmdodd is kicking goals with #2036 Hierarchical replies and @johnjamesjacoby is also helping out.
  • Adding support for images in topics and replies, the code is in, now to decide if default is on or off? (Leave a comment below)
  • Storing currently unused user profile meta imported from other forums for later use with potential inclusion in future versions of bbPress.

The weekly #wordpress-dev IRC chats are also now scheduled Wednesday’s @ 21:00 UTC (previously it was 20:00 UTC). What are your thoughts on times? Push it back an hour?
