3. Handbooks: The contributor handbooks have a new design, thanks to @sonjanyc! @samuelsidler deployed the new theme this week to all of the contributor handbooks across The community site where WordPress code is created and shared by the users. This is where you can download the source code for WordPress core, plugins and themes as well as the central location for community conversations and organization. (thank you Sam!). We need to make a decision whether to keep the Pages list at the top of parent pages and style it, or to remove the list entirely, so please leave your feedback on the post.

4. TracTrac Trac is the place where contributors create issues for bugs or feature requests much like GitHub. The Docs team needs to provide feedback on changing a text string in Trac ticket #27196. Anyone interested that may have a better way to explain the error is welcome to comment and/or provide a patch.

5. Contributor Experience Survey: @jenmylo posted the WordPress Contributor Experience Survey – 4 questions, none are mandatory. Please take the survey, then post, tweet, and tell your co-contributors/community members about it so they can take the survey too.
