A message from @marybaum, Core Team RepTeam Rep A Team Rep is a person who represents the Make WordPress team to the rest of the project, make sure issues are raised and addressed as needed, and coordinates cross-team efforts.: At the beginning of the meeting, please say hello in Slack, even if you’re observing, and especially if you’re new. It is a compliment that you choose to give Core an hour of your time and not the other way around. Also, if you are working on the release and people have a question, it is nice to know who is in the house.
