Setting the structure and an agenda for APAC-friendly devchat

@francina‘s proposal for APAC-friendly devchats attracted interest from commenters on every continent. I approached them recently to get their thoughts on moving forward.

Based on that advice, I propose a first meeting to set up these devchats and schedule them on the #core channel on Makemake A collection of P2 blogs at make.wordpress.org, which are the home to a number of contributor groups, including core development (make/core, formerly "wpdevel"), the UI working group (make/ui), translators (make/polyglots), the theme reviewers (make/themes), resources for plugin authors (make/plugins), and the accessibility working group (make/accessibility). WordPress SlackSlack Slack is a Collaborative Group Chat Platform https://slack.com/. The WordPress community has its own Slack Channel at https://make.wordpress.org/chat/..

A look at all the team meetings in the Meeting Calendar shows an opening on Thursdays at 15:00 AEST – this replaces the APAC Triagetriage The act of evaluating and sorting bug reports, in order to decide priority, severity, and other factors. Session which will be rescheduled.

So let’s meet this week: Thursday, June 18th, at 15:00 AEST.

Please comment below with your thoughts on discussion topics, ongoing structure and agenda or anything else that seems relevant.

See you on Thursday!

Edit: This post has been edited to bring forward the start date by a week — @peterwilsoncc.

APAC Triage and Bug Scrub Sessions

Living in APAC timezones can be difficult. From waking up at 3am for meetings, to flying 20+ for WCUS or WCEU (WCAsia is coming to fix that!), to hearing “what’s it like living in the future?” jokes for the millionth time. One thing that shouldn’t be hard is contributing to WordPress, and it’s time to makemake A collection of P2 blogs at make.wordpress.org, which are the home to a number of contributor groups, including core development (make/core, formerly "wpdevel"), the UI working group (make/ui), translators (make/polyglots), the theme reviewers (make/themes), resources for plugin authors (make/plugins), and the accessibility working group (make/accessibility). that even easier, with APAC-friendly triagetriage The act of evaluating and sorting bug reports, in order to decide priority, severity, and other factors. and bugbug A bug is an error or unexpected result.

The meeting lead will pick a report to work through, but if there are particular issues you’d like to get more eyes on, or you have a patchpatch A special text file that describes changes to code, by identifying the files and lines which are added, removed, and altered. It may also be referred to as a diff. A patch can be applied to a codebase for testing./PR that you’d like reviewed, this is the place to bring it up!
