Recently, there was a proposal to streamline the roles within the WordPress Community Team. The goal is to simplify the roles, eliminate any redundancy, and make it easier for new members to understand the various roles and responsibilities. This proposal is still under consideration, and the team is actively seeking feedback from the community.

To further discuss the roles and responsibilities of the Community Team, a session has been planned. This session aims to provide an opportunity for the team members to explain their roles, answer any questions the community may have, and gather feedback from the attendees. Through this session, the team hopes to gain a deeper understanding of the community’s needs and how they can better serve them.
