We’re supposed to choose a new team rep this week, so please go comment on Siobhan’s post, New Team Rep (also, do we need one?).

Join the sprint in Seattle, or on IRC at #wordpress-sfd.

@jazzs3quence and contributors are making progress, but still need help with:

  1. Documentation contributions for tooltips and overviews
  2. Testing and bug/issue reporting.

5. Docs Project Landing Pages

Per last week’s report, the Docs Team are creating helpful landing pages for each docs-related project that provide an overview of the project and a clear path for contributors to get involved.

Your docs project can add a page to the Projects section where @DrewAPicture posted the landing page for Inline Docs, which is a great example.

@siobhan would like to have these pages complete by Feb 28th and would like a volunteer to oversee this project and make sure it gets done.

6. Administrative Chat

@siobhan would you like to use next week’s new chat time for the Administrative Chat you’d mentioned earlier? Or, do you prefer to schedule this for another day?
