@mapk shared a recent update from @matveb about Full Site Editing. It’s a good primer to help people get started with contributing to Gutenberg Phase 2.

Design Experiments Plugin

@karmatosed invited folks to use and test the Design Experiments Plugin, where a few of our current projects can be found for testing.

The team also discussed where would be the best place to leave feedback on these experiments, and it was agreed to include a link to a post so folks can learn more about each experiment and know where they can leave feedback.

Open Floor

@joyously shared a bug in Gutenberg that affects the Media + Text block when RTL text alignment is enabled and an issue about the block inserter visibility when a left aligned pullquote is present in the new Twenty Twenty theme.

@mapk shared @francina‘s feedback on the About page.

@richtabor asked for feedback on a concept for adding block patterns on a document in Gutenberg.
