The WordPress community has its own Slack Channel at https://make.wordpress.org/chat/. channel as a central place to discuss what we’re working on and support each other.

Who can take part?

If you are a deputy who has been active in the last 6 months, then you would have been added to the tracker already, but if you don’t have access and still want to take part then please comment here and we can give you access.

When is this happening?

We have two sprints planned for next week, so we can accommodate as many time zones as possible. The two times are:
