Summary for Helphub Meeting August 22nd

MigrationMigration Moving the code, database and media files for a website site from one server to another. Most typically done when changing hosting companies./Editing

The introduction pages for contributing to HelpHub, in the docs handbook, have been updated to help with onboarding new contributors, and a contributor document has been added to the project on GitHubGitHub GitHub is a website that offers online implementation of git repositories that can easily be shared, copied and modified by other developers. Public repositories are free to host, private repositories require a paid subscription. GitHub introduced the concept of the ‘pull request’ where code changes done in branches by contributors can be reviewed and discussed before being merged be the repository owner.

General migration of documentation is moving along at a decent pace.


Input is being provided on the various visual elements of the project, and tickets are being created for tasks that need addressing in relation to this.


Documentation on code contributions is in the works.

We’re also looking into possibly having everything under a team as it can become messy to mix plugins and themes in one large repository, splitting plugins into separate repositories for management purposes would help with that and needs a team to keep track of the mall in one location (as a continuation on the sub-modules discussion form last week).


@kenshino, @milana_cap, @sergeybiryukov, @atachibana, @davidmlentz, @picturecities, @mapk, @clorith, @kafleg, @hugo-finley and @joyously attended.
