I plan on submitting a Gutenberg block to the repo.

What am I supposed to submit? Only the compiled code is distributed. Based on how the SVN repo works, it seams I should NOT be submitting the source code.

    I don't see anything about not submitting source code: developer.wordpress.org/plugins/wordpress-org/… What about SVN makes you think you shouldn't submit source code? Commented Aug 9, 2021 at 15:25
  • Only the .org plugin review team can truly answer this, ask them over on the .org forums or their Slack channel

Have a look at the handbook. And you're right, put the code to distribute there. I'm quoting the handbook:

SVN and the Plugin Directory are a release repository. Unlike Git, you shouldn’t commit every small change, as doing so can degrade performance. Please only push finished changes to your SVN repository.

  • His question though was if he should submit source code OR compiled code. I think the issue here is that SVN is for distributing, not for developing.
