  • Handbooks started – see next post
  • Doc sprints – discussed the doc sprint I’ll be holding at WordCampWordCamp WordCamps are casual, locally-organized conferences covering everything related to WordPress.

We also discussed starting a project to create documentation mini-projects that WordCamp organisers can use at WordCamps. Will post something about this and look for volunteers at the end of the month.
  • Help Text – Drew is going to rewrite the Network Admin Help Text for WordPress 3.6. We discussed exploring how we can make the inline help more useful in terms of visibility and context. We thought that we should perhaps start out with some user testing of the current Help Tab and plan out some user stories to explore how different people would interact with the tabs.
