@karmatosed starts off asking for extra people to help run the triage meetings on monday, where we discuss open tickets and prioritize for the next release. Volunteers can speak up in the slack channel or via DM.

@mapk reports that GutenbergGutenberg The 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. 7.4 will be out soon, and it’s looking really good.

Next, @karmatosed asks for design feedback on the auto updates settings that’s new for 5.4. Take a look at it and share your thoughts, this is an interesting new feature for WordPress.

@estelaris and @bph bring a design ticket for feedback. Helphup and Devhub don’t have a way for people to leave feedback on the documentation. This would add a comment form to those pages. @karmatosed advised simplifying the form and then iterating, and @michael-arestad had concerns about moderating, but the comments will not be shown publically clarified @bph.

Finally, @paaljoachim brings to our attention.
