@andraganescu noticing that the meeting was the lowest engagement and participation ever recorded, confirming quite a long and steady trend of this meeting loosing its purpose, raised that we should make the meeting twice a month and also reshape its usefulness.

This is also a requirement because GutenbergGutenberg The Gutenberg project is the new Editor Interface for WordPress. The editor improves the process and experience of creating new content, making writing rich content much simpler. It uses ‘blocks’ to add richness rather than shortcodes, custom HTML etc. https://wordpress.org/gutenberg/ appears to be managed by the community much better than a couple of years a go:

  • there are consistently updated tracking issues
  • there are repeated and well done outreach programs
  • most of the editor issues end up as 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/ issues

Therefore having a meeting just to have it seems pointless.
