Hi everyone. As you know, the suggested …

Hi everyone. As you know, the suggested “pencils down” date is in 5 days, on August 10. Then the following week is meant to be spent scrubbing code, writing tests, finishing documentation, etc., after which final evaluations are due. Just to reiterate, you should be finished with the actual development of your project by Monday. I strongly suggest each of you check in with your mentors and ask them if there’s anything you need to catch up on in order to pass the final evaluation.

In addition, as some of your projects will be under consideration for inclusion into core, you’re officially invited to attend this week’s IRC dev chat to talk a little bit about your project in the context of 2.9 planning with the core devs and leading community contributors. The chat is on Thursday, August 6 at 21:00 UTC (5pm NY time) and can be accessed through any IRC client. The server is irc.freenode.com and the channel is #wordpress-dev. I know not all of you will be able to make it, but if you can, please do.
