Our vision is to be the go-to resource for design for other teams across the WordPress open sourceOpen SourceOpen Source denotes software for which the original source code is made freely available and may be redistributed and modified.

@karmatosed starts off with two suggestions to keep us working more organised and focused.
Firstly, one of the common issues when starting to contribute or finding your way to is to discover what is going on and what the context behind it is. @michael-arestad suggest to add our focus projects to the Handbook, like full site editing for gutenbergGutenbergThe 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/ for instance, it will be easier to read up, and could also include a timeline if known, links to where the work is happening and who is involved.
This could go hand in hand with the Make blogposts, that maybe the Handbook page can curate. The lead on a project would have the responsibility of keeping the info up to date as the project progresses. MetaMetaMeta 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. has something similar at https://make.wordpress.org/meta/projects/
Secondly, @karmatosed suggests iterating and bringing our Trello board back from not being at the heart with a new workflow structure:
Needs feedback: this will be what we pull weekly meeting from
The icebox could become a place where ideas go to die, but as @foletto remarks, that will happen anyway with some ideas no matter how we sort the project.
This also frees up the labels from being part of the workflow, and allows them to be used the way they are intended to.
Both suggestions will go up as proposal on the Make blog for further discussion.
A discussion about GithubGitHubGitHub is a website that offers online implementation of git repositories that can 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/ vs TrelloTrelloProject management system using the concepts of boards and cards to organize tasks in a sane way. This is what the make.wordpress.com/marketing team uses for example: https://trello.com/b/8UGHVBu8/wp-marketing. spun off of this idea that will be continued at a later time.
Next, @mapk brings Gutenberg updates. Gutenberg 6.9 is almost out! Lots of things being worked on. Do note that the Gutenberg pluginPluginA plugin is a piece of software containing a group of functions that can be added to a WordPress website. They can extend functionality or add new features to your WordPress websites. WordPress plugins are written in the PHP programming language and integrate seamlessly with WordPress. These can be free in the WordPress.org Plugin Directory https://wordpress.org/plugins/ or can be cost-based plugin from a third-party v6.5+ needs WP 5.3 now.
For WP 5.4, there are some Gutenberg focuses left this month https://make.wordpress.org/core/2019/10/29/whats-next-in-gutenberg-november/. @mapk and @shaunandrews will run some usability tests on the new nav blockBlockBlock is the abstract term used to describe units of markup that, composed together, form the content or layout of a webpage using the WordPress editor. The idea combines concepts of what in the past may have achieved with shortcodes, custom HTML, and embed discovery into a single consistent API and user experience., which is almost done.
Then, some interesting reading material was shared:
@hedgefield noted he would ask the team at Yoast that worked on this Gutenberg-based storytelling page if they had any wishes or suggestions to improve the workflow next time around.
