I. Accessibility Vision for WordPress

We’re planning a Special Meeting to discuss the accessibility vision for WordPress and changing the bug scrub. We’d love your input so please plan to attend and share with other contributors.

II. Changing the Bug Scrub

The team is looking to conduct the weekly Bug Scrub at a different time to increase the involvement of contributors who may not be able to join at its current day and time (Fridays 15:00 UTC).
