Discussion: Are we continuing to use Trello for project planning?

TrelloTrello Project management system using the concepts of boards and cards to organize tasks in a sane way. This is what the make.wordpress.com/marketing team uses for example: https://trello.com/b/8UGHVBu8/wp-marketing. has changed their free plan. It now limits free Workspaces to 10 collaborators. Currently their are about 24 current and former Community Team members associated with the team’s free Workspace.

Trello has informed us that:

  • On April 8, 2024, in free Workspaces at or over the limit, you’ll only be able to share boards with current Workspace collaborators.
  • On May 20, 2024, in free Workspaces over the limit, boards will become view only.

The initial conversation in Slack seemed to indicate that we might be done with Trello and ready to move to GitHubGitHub GitHub is a website that offers online implementation of git repositories that can easily be shared, copied and modified by other developers. Public repositories are free to host, private repositories require a paid subscription. GitHub introduced the concept of the ‘pull request’ where code changes done in branches by contributors can be reviewed and discussed before being merged be the repository owner. https://github.com/ for project planning. If so, then we can close our free Trello Workspace.

If we want to continue using Trello, we will need to limit the number of users.

So, the question I need feedback on is:

  1. Should we close Trello and use GitHub?
  2. Should we keep Trello and decide which 10 members have access to it?

    Please reply in the thread by 4 April. 🙂
