@kenshino and @milana_cap pinned down pressing issues from tickets, two of which are:

-SidebarSidebar A sidebar in WordPress is referred to a widget-ready area used by WordPress themes to display information that is not a part of the main content. It is not always a vertical column on the side. It can be a horizontal rectangle below or above the content area, footer, header, or any where in the theme.
–Adding Languages

@milana_cap brought up issues with building (Grunt/Travis)
*@milana_cap will check with @netweb

1. Has conflicts, not sure if still valid:

2. Has conflicts caused by grunt, needs checking the grunt tasks

The first may or may not still be relevant, both have conflicts with obvious wrong grunt build.

@kenshino requested that once the issues are pinned down, that someone be assigned to pick up on the two tasks.
@milana_cap will follow up.


@milana_cap brought up another task for discussion:
(metaboxes and CPT creation)

-Discussion relative to shifting Phase 1.5 to TracTrac Trac is the place where contributors create issues for bugs or feature requests much like GitHub. to involve other developers

-Discussion about a possible meta-helphub channel
@kenshino will connect with @coffee2code to determine if this would also work well with the Meta team.

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. Docs from An online implementation of WordPress code that lets you immediately access a new WordPress environment to publish your content. is a private company owned by Automattic that hosts the largest multisite in the world. This is arguably the best place to start blogging if you have never touched WordPress before.

@nao from Automattic (on a localisation team) has offered a possibility to be able to use some existing Gutenberg docs, to which they are also translating presently in 16 languages.

@joostdevalk was also mentioned in the original conversation in terms of how to handle possible duplicate content between .com and .org.

@kenshino asked @dryanpress to follow up with @nao and report back to @atachibana to see how this might fit in with their docs production that is underway.
