Arguments used to hook both filters and actions look the same. redirected and now we have 2% \o/

Design review

@estelaris has been working on a new design to the support home page. There was a review with the design team and they would like to get rid of the grid and use a list instead.

The screenshot of the work in progress was shared in the related ticket: https://meta.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/4493#comment:8

Related tickets https://meta.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/4492 and https://meta.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/4491 were also updated and any feedback on the design can be given there.

Development

@milana_cap updates:

  • We are still waiting for @netweb’s setup if I haven’t miss anything last week.
  • during Contributor DayContributor Day Contributor Days are standalone days, frequently held before or after WordCamps but they can also happen at any time. They are events where people get together to work on various areas of https://make.wordpress.org/ There are many teams that people can participate in, each with a different focus. https://2017.us.wordcamp.org/contributor-day/ https://make.wordpress.org/support/handbook/getting-started/getting-started-at-a-contributor-day/. I did review and updated the Dashboard Widgets page in Common APIs Handbook
  • we had @Jaap Wiering working on concept for adding AccessibilityAccessibility Accessibility (commonly shortened to a11y) refers to the design of products, devices, services, or environments for people with disabilities. The concept of accessible design ensures both “direct access” (i.e. unassisted) and “indirect access” meaning compatibility with a person’s assistive technology (for example, computer screen readers). (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Accessibility) notes and instructions where ever possible in DevHub and HelpHub

@milana_cap adds that with all the design changes being worked, it should be better to wait. @estelaris says that today #design and #accessibility teams should be free and I will get approval for both designs. “Will do my best to have them ready for development next week”

HelpHub rosetta releaseRelease A release is the distribution of the final version of an application. A software release may be either public or private and generally constitutes the initial or new generation of a new or upgraded application. A release is preceded by the distribution of alpha and then beta versions of the software.

@atachibana says “Japanese HelpHub migration does not have good progress ;-( 7 of 166 (4.2%) was done. We’ll encourage volunteers.”

@milana_cap says “Serbian team has momentum but then we’ve got it enabled on wrong website and waited for fix. It’s fixed now so I’ll make sure we start working on it this week. I’m trying to encourage others to lead the project”

Open Floor

@leogermani asked if there were any previous discussion on adding a “send feedback” or “inform error” button on the articles on HelpHub, to make it easier for people to contribute. Some people currently open tracTrac Trac is the place where contributors create issues for bugs or feature requests much like GitHub.https://core.trac.wordpress.org/. tickets or send messages in the 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/. channel directly.

Apparently there is not and he might open a trac ticket to discuss that.
