These Aged Eyes

Lloyd Dewolf
Hi,

Although I've continued to marvel at the evolution of WordPress as the web
publishing platform, only today did I open the kimono again after a few
years. WordPress Development is equally as marvelous!

I'm currently focused on volunteering in a capacity related to CI & QA for
wordpress-mobile. I wanted to share a few observations related to areas
that challenged these old eyes:
* The handbook would benefit from describing the relationship b/w
core.svn.wp.org and the full development tree provided by develop.svn.wp.org
Thankfully, my google-fu led me to find
http://make.wordpress.org/core/2013/08/06/a-new-frontier-for-core-development/

* Related to those developments (pun!) many pages in the Download sidebar
seem stale:
  * https://wordpress.org/download/beta/ could be combined with
https://wordpress.org/download/nightly/
  * https://wordpress.org/download/svn/ &
https://code.trac.wordpress.org/browser/wordpress-sources
  * https://wordpress.org/download/source/ & http://xref.wordpress.org/
* Browse Happy looks to still be used in core, but
https://github.com/WordPress/browsehappy appears orphaned ... only now
found http://meta.svn.wordpress.org/sites/trunk/browsehappy.com/ and
https://meta.trac.wordpress.org/query?status=!closed&component=browsehappy.com
after coming across https://code.trac.wordpress.org/changeset/281 .

I look forward to the opportunity to circle back and make my own
contributions around core. Which might start by reporting these
non-critical issues if someone else doesn't grab the baton meantime.

Thank you,
Lloyd
