Some writers volunteered during the meeting. It was agreed to promote a call for input and writers wider and various options were discussed to encourage awareness, mentor and share learning, and increase the number of voices.

See our main development blog and other workgroup blogs. blog post and cross-posting to other teams and in specific meetings, individual networks on social.

The core dev blog is still in betaBeta A pre-release of software that is given out to a large group of users to trial under real conditions. Beta versions have gone through alpha testing in-house and are generally fairly close in look, feel and function to the final product; however, design changes often occur as part of the process., so a larger promotion /marketing campaign will be at the end of the current cycle. Post-beta stage, there could be more analysis on referrers to the core dev blog and identifying developer advocates who may be able to help promote awareness.

Work on the beta version continues, with identified issues to address with design and metaMeta Meta is a term that refers to the inside workings of a group. For us, this is the team that works on internal WordPress sites like WordCamp Central and Make WordPress.. No date as yet for the marketing launch. GitHub repo for more information on design areas.
