Request for feedback: Revising application tracker back-end

Some time ago during a conversation with the WordCampWordCamp WordCamps are casual, locally-organized conferences covering everything related to WordPress. They're one of the places where the WordPress community comes together to teach one another what they’ve learned throughout the year and share the joy. Learn more. MetaMeta Meta is a term that refers to the inside workings of a group. For us, this is the team that works on internal WordPress sites like WordCamp Central and Make WordPress. team, we found that it would be wise to revise WordCamp and MeetupMeetup Meetup groups are locally-organized groups that get together for face-to-face events on a regular basis (commonly once a month). Learn more about Meetups in our Meetup Organizer Handbook. application tracker back-end.

The goal is to identify which features or fields are not used anymore, if there’s a need for new features and what features or processed would need improvements.

Application trackers are heavily used by Community Team DeputiesDeputy Community Deputies are a team of people all over the world who review WordCamp and Meetup applications, interview lead organizers, and generally keep things moving at WordCamp Central. Find more about deputies in our Community Deputy Handbook. and making the user experience as good as it’s reasonably possible, will hopefully ease and speed up the use of tracker. Improving the trackers can free up some time used to update Meetup and WordCamp information, allowing deputies to focus on the most important thing – helping the event organizers in worldwide WordPress Community.

After comments and ideas on improving the tracker are gathered, I will review those and write a follow-up proposal with concrete proposals and actionable tasks. After those tasks are reviewed, approved ones will be moved to WordPress.org Github issue tracker and I commit to work on those (help is always welcome!)

Please share your thoughts and ideas before 2020-05-04.
