New and ongoing discussions
Proposal: A documentation editing sprint for the Community team
Several pages in the Make/Community handbook are outdated and need to be updated. Hari proposes a documentation editing sprint for the Community team to get our documentation again up to date. Idea is to test this out by organizing an initial sprint exactly two weeks later on May 25th. If the initial sprint goes well, we can consider organizing multiple sprints throughout the rest of the year. Community members can work on editing the documentation pages at their own convenience throughout the course of the day.
Proposal: adding vaccination status to the in-person meetup safety checklist
The Community team proposes to apply the COVID vaccination related guidelines to the in-person event safety checklist for WordPress chapter meetups 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.. In short, the proposal is about allowing organising events for fully-vaccinated people in some cases. Please leave your thoughts before May 27.
Opportunity to bring things into discussions that weren’t on the meeting agenda and if anyone has something they would like to share with the team. If you have a topic in mind before the meeting, please add it into the comments of this post.
Hope to see you on Thursday, either on Asia-Pacific / EMEA or Americas friendly version of the meeting!
