I don’t know if a petition was made, but over the past months, the Yoast team members have been integrating Google Tag Manager into wordpress.org. They have opened a lot of meta tickets to describe the problems with the site’s SEO. Since that site runs WordPress, I wondered why some of that is not incorporated into core. (they have, on occasion, mentioned that there’s a plugin that could be used)
So I wanted to bring up the topic of looking at the meta tickets to see what could be changed in core CP.

Pretty much every SEO related ticket we’ve seen has either been due to a) Not running core’s canonical or b) Something that should’ve been fixed in core, and usually has a ticket open from 5-10 years ago
In order to take action on any of these tickets, they probably need to be handled individually. Larger changes need to go through the petition process, and minor changes need to be implemented on GitHub as a PR, ideally with someone available who knows how the change works at a detailed level and how it will impact other parts of ClassicPress and other possible configurations.
