Cross Communication with GutenbergGutenberg The Gutenberg project is the new Editor Interface for WordPress. The editor improves the process and experience of creating new content, making writing rich content much simpler. It uses ‘blocks’ to add richness rather than shortcodes, custom HTML etc. https://wordpress.org/gutenberg/ Docs Team: We spent quite a bit of time cross-communicating with the Gutenberg Docs team and other Gutenberg members becoming better acquainted with their status. @chrisvanpatten worked on remote organization and @Dave Ryan was on scene working with Gutenberg Docs team members, new participants and the Gutenberg team.

Gutenberg Outlining: There were several suggestions representing that there was a desire for a form of an outline or implementation priority schedule relative to Gutenberg Docs. We worked with the Gutenberg Docs team in order to relay this feedback. The Gutenberg Docs team has this in progress.

Multiple Teams: We actively solicited feedback from a number of different teams and people on what they desire in terms of docs, changes, etc.

Resources Aggregation: Concepts were discussed to aggregate resources and resource links with a more streamlined interface (ideas relative to bridging the gap between resources located in many different places).

Further discussed Experts vs. Content relative to enhancements to new coming content and the recently migrated content, which was a concept already raised in Docs team meetings.

We edited a number of docs and welcomed several new participants! This included a review of the recently migrated HelpHub items. Thank you to @SallyinStC for working hard on providing feedback to the migrationMigration Moving the code, database and media files for a website site from one server to another.

Handbook: We attempted to request feedback on our Handbook from multiple people.

All in all, this was a very successful endeavor. We ended up putting the bulk of our time resources into high level discussion for future concepts and planning and balanced this with additional hands on article and review work.

We’re very grateful for everyone that helped organize, came out to help, came by to offer input and who we were able to network with in order to make the most of this day!
