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 GitHubGitHub GitHub is a website that offers online implementation of git repositories that can 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. https://github.com/ for discussion and decision.

Development

Catch up is required to track how far we’re getting the current work merged into MetaMeta Meta is a term that refers to the inside workings of a group. For us, this is the team that works on internal WordPress sites like WordCamp Central and Make WordPress..

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

@clorith and @kenshino will be having asynchronous chats on SlackSlack Slack is a Collaborative Group Chat Platform https://slack.com/. The WordPress community has its own Slack Channel at https://make.wordpress.org/chat/. 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.
