As announced in the last weekly meetings, my term as Team Rep A Team Rep is a person who represents the Make WordPress team to the rest of the project, make sure issues are raised and addressed as needed, and coordinates cross-team efforts. is coming to an end: rotating roles is beneficial in every environment and I’m more than happy to allow someone else to learn all the things I was able to learn in the last year.
To continue the tradition of having two Team Reps on the team, the Accessibility Accessibility (commonly shortened to a11y) refers to the design of products, devices, services, or environments for people with disabilities. The concept of accessible design ensures both “direct access” (i.e. unassisted) and “indirect access” meaning compatibility with a person’s assistive technology (for example, computer screen readers). (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Accessibility) Team is officially accepting new Team Reps nominations for someone to share the responsibilities with @alexstine, who will continue in the role.
If you’d like to learn more about what it means to be a Team Rep, you can find more details in this article about Team Reps. But, in summary,
Team Rep is a leadership role that is mostly administrative in nature; it is not a Lead role. Letting go of the Team Rep title is not a loss of status, just a handing off of responsibilities. Someone who is a leader in a team can lead whether they are doing the team rep job or not.
If you would like to be considered for the role or know someone who would be a great fit, you have the opportunity to nominate yourself or others by adding a comment to this post. We’ll be reviewing nominations during the next weekly meeting, happening on Friday, June 18, 2021, 16:00 UTC. Depending on the number of submissions, we’ll define if we’ll be holding a voting round.
Please feel free to reach out to @alexstine or me (@ryokuhi) on Slack Slack is a Collaborative Group Chat Platform https://slack.com/. The WordPress community has its own Slack Channel at https://make.wordpress.org/chat/. if you have any questions about the role or the process.
Lastly, allow me to give thanks to all the team members, contributors and everyone I had the opportunity to meet in the last year: it’s been a pleasure to work with you all and I’ll try to continue to support the team at the best of my possibilities.
