Meeting beginning in Slack:

Checking In

We haven’t had meeting for a few weeks, but happily, people are general doing well, which is great to hear!

Meeting Time

Our meeting time is shifting an hour later in to 20:00UTC, which will remain consistent for areas participating in Daylight Saving Time. For others this will mean the meeting is an hour later and also is at the same time as Dev Chat. We’ll see how this goes for the next little while and revisit if it’s not working out.

As always, if you aren’t able to make the meeting, you are welcome to add comments in the #community-team channel afterwards or post comments to recaps like this one.



  • populate and organize TrelloTrello Project management system using the concepts of boards and cards to organize tasks in a sane way. This is what the team uses for example: board
  • communicate with and support one another more
  • publish team structure


  • scale down to smaller, more digestible tasks (using Trello board)
  • create testing environments
  • start working with a few teams on onboarding information, perhaps establishing a baseline standard where possible
  • continue expanding this list

Next Steps

Original next steps from the Agenda were put on hold in favour of getting more organized, which includes working on our 2020 goals (as there are only a few weeks left in 2020).

Christina will get everyone access to the Trello board. If you don’t have access, please DM @amethysanswers in SlackSlack Slack is a Collaborative Group Chat Platform The WordPress community has its own Slack Channel at

Christina will also finalize our group Leads and meet with them.

Everyone else, please keep talking amongst yourselves in group DMs, even if it’s just getting to know one another better.

Our next meeting (and last one in 2020) will be December 16 at 20:00 UTC.
