The $_old_files array needs to be updated for 5.8.

While updating to the 5.8 Beta 1 package to test during the packaging process, the following was returned:

Success: WordPress updated successfully.

These files being "old" needs to be confirmed and added to the array accordingly.

Thanks @kapilpaul! This looks good with a few adjustments that I'll make when committing.

First, we'll just want to alphabetize the list so that everything is in a logical order. And second, it looks like the wp-includes/blocks/subhead directory was also removed. That will also need to be added to the list.

Hi @desrosj

wp-includes/blocks/subhead the full directory removed??

I am only seeing wp-includes/blocks/subhead/block.json in the log which you have shared.

It was! The log above was just to share the output from WP CLI when updating. The best way to fully check for all deleted files and directories is using SVN and is
in the release documentation.

For this release, running the following command will do the trick.

svn diff --summarize | grep '^D'

Looks like there are a few more files to add to the list related to the About page edits (see #52775). 53367.2.diff takes care of that.

Since 5.8 has been branched, the new command is svn diff --summarize | grep '^D'.

I've also verified that all new files do not share a name with any listed in $_old_files using svn diff --summarize | grep '^A'.

  • Keywords dev-reviewed added; dev-feedback removed

[51459] looks good for backport to me, review process:

  • Install WP 5.7
  • Run wp core update to install the nightly
  • verify each of the files above are removed, they are.

I'm going to take another look at [51134] doing a standard (in WP upgrade) as I am not clear on why the built files shouldn't be removed.

Props desrosj.
Merges [51459] to the 5.8 branch.
Fixes #53367.

#13 @desrosj

After looking further with @peterwilsoncc, it does seem that the files removed from the list in [51134] do in fact belong in the list. However, there is a bug in grunt verify:old-files that is incorrectly flagging them.

I've opened #53687 as a followup for that.

The $_old_files list is iterated through every time a site updates, so these files can be added in 5.8.1 and they will be removed appropriately.
