Progress at Contributor Day
Research has continued and we now have docs for many of the areas we had planned plus new areas we discovered together.
Add new user form (/networknetwork(versus site, blog)/ variation)

I put together a comparison sheet that goes over coreCoreCore is the set of software required to run WordPress. The Core Development Team builds WordPress. APIs vs a few popular plugins. It may help you visualize what we are doing here.
Our next meeting
We’re going to set up another meeting in #core-fields on SlackSlackSlack is a Collaborative Group Chat Platform https://slack.com/. The WordPress community has its own Slack Channel at https://make.wordpress.org/chat/. in September to get everyone together again. I’ll post here again as soon as we have a time set so others who are interested can join.
Research will continue
We have a few more docs to continue working on. We will coordinate who does what in the #core-fields Slack channel. If you’re interested in helping, feel free to mention me (@sc0ttkclark) there!
