Summary of HelpHub meeting 21 May 2018

Attendance

@kenshino @milana_cap @carl-alberto @tomf @chetan200891 @felipeelia @clorith attended

There were no Content & Design updates in the meeting; we’ll catch up with them the next!

Development Updates

We’re still missing the side bar and it’s related work to be done to finish up Phase 1. While the majority of Phase 1 is complete, without those items in, discovery of content would be next to impossible. 

We’re definitely looking to finish those items before launch. It turns out as well that the Meta team is busy with GDPR and launch would likely get delayed anyway!

@felipeelia volunteered to work on the side bar

@clorith will have a chat with @netweb about the likely merge of all code into Meta first week of June

@kenshino would really like to be able to announce HelpHub’s launch during WCEU

We have also decided to punt primary categories and keep articles without a category base for permalinks for Phase 1. A deeper look into how articles are discovered is necessary before we decide on the role of permalinks in such.

Bug Scrub

  • https://github.com/Kenshino/HelpHub/issues/201 – We’re hoping @atachibana can pick this up as he wrote the original code
  • https://github.com/Kenshino/HelpHub/issues/152 – This is an improvement to the local development tool, it’s not urgent and we’re hoping for @tomjn to put up a PR once he’s less busy with VVV 🙂
  • https://github.com/Kenshino/HelpHub/issues/50 – this might be useful if we have a lot of code snippets. But not important for Phase 1 so punted.
  • https://github.com/Kenshino/HelpHub/issues/9 – While it is likely the Support Forums will boot up an Elasticsearch instance to handle search. Getting the instance up is only a tiny part of the entire effort to make search an intuitive and useful experience. Getting the content indexed is easy but we’ll have to work on the UX and teach it to understand the content we’re building. This is likely a Phase 2 or a Phase 3 effort.

Summary for HelpHub meeting 14 May 2018

Attendance

@felipeelia @atachibana @tomf @kenshino @rajan.lama786 @clorith @mapk @milana_cap @tjnowell @joyously

Content

@tomf re-constructed and modified WordPress history page. He is the long time user since Version 1.5, so appropriate person.
https://wp-helphub.com/getting-started/history/. @atachibana worked for additional categories so that current top pages are included in correctly.

Design

Mockup for #203 is done and design from #111 should be applied to it. #206 still needs mockups.

Development

Bugs scrub

Content

@atachibana will be working on ensuring the main page links are appropriately categorised

Design

A few decisions were made namely

  • The sidebar will be restored to house a few widgets such as sub-nav, language selection – https://github.com/Kenshino/HelpHub/issues/111
  • The archive pages will get a proper design – https://github.com/Kenshino/HelpHub/issues/206
  • @mapk will also do some UX discovery/testing to see what our design lacks critically

Development

  • Front end section titles will need linking to the archive pages
  • The dev team will help sort out the development tasks needed to close important design issues needed for MVP

Content

In top page, a new link to Taxonomies was made. The page was prepared by @danieltj. Besides minor issues, Phase 1 is mainly finished for the content part. Overall progress can be checked from – https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1PeHj7pSFLcdMbIC41JJdzEkl12TJT3mwWyzQv2mi01U/edit#gid=835534324

@atachibana will liaise with @clorith and the Support Team to solicit some feedback.

Home page content can be found in this docs.

Design

Discussions on language blocks and home page alignment are on GitHub. Also, we should decide will we use sidebar or one centered column for articles content. Feel free to join discussion.

Development

@netweb is looking into some .org blockers, he was going to test a workaround over the weekend. We’ll know more before next meeting. Follow track ticket.

Suggestion to branch GitHub to differentiate MVP and Phase 2 development still needs to be discussed. @clorith and @kenshino will be having asynchronous chats on Slack to clarify the development front.

Reminder: We’ve moved HelpHub meetings to Mondays 15:00 UTC.

Bug scrub will resume next meeting onwards.

Content

@atachibana reports

Metrics:
Phase 1 : 40 articles linked from Top page. 40 (+/- 0) / 100% (+/- 0) articles were edited. Now MVP ready
Phase 2: Total 119 articles were picked up from Codex and 108 (+2) / 90.8% (+ 1.7%) articles were edited.
Overall progress can be checked from – https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1PeHj7pSFLcdMbIC41JJdzEkl12TJT3mwWyzQv2mi01U/edit#gid=835534324

@atachibana will liaise with @clorith and the Support Team to solicit some feedback

Design

There remains some design work to be done and @mapk will be creating issues  in the Github repository after a review to enable discussions and fixes.

Some issues raised were

  • Language blocks were too big
  • Should articles get centered in the absence of a nav bar
  • Should nav bar be restored to house the language blocks and Table of Content?

All of these will be on GitHub for discussion and decision.

Development

Catch up is required to track how far we’re getting the current work merged into Meta.

@clorith suggests to branch GitHub to differentiate MVP and Phase 2 development.

@clorith and @kenshino will be having asynchronous chats on Slack to clarify the development front.

Meeting Date & Time

Because of WCEU, work, life changes, DST and so on, it seems like Tuesday 16:00 UTC is no longer a good option for HelpHub meetings.

We’ve moved it to Mondays 15:00 UTC after some deliberations.

AOB

Bug scrub will resume next meeting onwards.
