WordPress Trac Gets New Core Components Overview Page for Filtering Tickets

The exciting news today in WordPress core development is a shiny new core/components page that presents an organized overview of open Trac tickets for each component. Nacin announced the new feature today during the #wordpress-dev IRC meeting, which delighted many core contributors in attendance. The page breaks down 34 top-level components with two dozen subcomponents.


When you further navigate to a component page, you’ll see any subcomponents linked at the top, along with a description, and any recent make.wordpress.org blog posts. Below the open ticket summary is a list of tickets with no replies and tickets slated for the next major milestone. At the bottom you’ll find a list of the component’s maintainers.


Trac has been completely reorganized into a few dozen components. The purpose behind the reorganization and the overview page is to help better classify tickets and streamline contributions. Contributors with a particular area of interest are able to instantly drill down to open tickets within that component. Nacin plans to add component-based notifications by the end of the week, so you can subscribe to any components where you have an interest.

  1. This is a huge leap forward for lowering the barriers to entry on Trac. My very first impression of Trac, was that of utter confusion- there is so much going on that it’s hard to know where to begin.

    Major props to everyone involved in this reorganization, as well as all of the other changes from the last few weeks. So exciting to see.
