Comment (by netweb):

 Replying to [comment:2 jrf]:
 > As suggested
 slightly further on in the Slack thread], maybe this now focus label
 should be called "technical-debt" instead to also cover missing unit
 tests, missing documentation, outdated dependencies etc.

 There are already existing Trac workflows to cover these:

 * "missing documentation" has the `docs` focus ->
 * "outdated dependencies" has the `Build/ Test Tools` component ->
 * "missing unit tests" is covered by either the component that it relates
 to or if more general then also the "Build/ Test Tools" component

 Due to the level of "technical debt" WordPress carris I don't think the
 introduction of a core focus of that name should be introduced. It implies
 that a new core focus on reducing "technical debt" has been introduced and
 sanctioned when this is not the actual case. I think we are all for
 reducing WordPress' technical debt, but there will be, for at least for
 the mid-term significant technical debt remain in WordPress so that
 WordPress just works for the majority of users.
