Format

Today we started with new meeting format. In order to make meetings more useful we want to try to keep updates as short as possible at the beginning of the meeting (or maybe even during day prior to the meeting).

Most of the meeting will be dedicated to one specific part of Docs team responsibility ― HelpHub is published and it will no longer have dedicated meetings every second week.

The rest of the meeting time will be used for quick discussions/decisions on any other part of Docs team work.

Also, whenever possible, it would be good to close the meeting with clear tasks for the next meeting.

Facilitators and note takers will be rotating. At every meeting one volunteer will be assigned for the next meeting.

HelpHub Updates

  • Content: 241 of 1068 (22.6%) pages were redirected. Last week was 230 of 1068 (21.5%).
  • Design: The team for WCValencia prepared some designs, but @estelaris needs to go through and to clean them up before presenting. Leave feedback for Home and Category pages here: https://make.wordpress.org/design/2019/10/14/new-design-for-helphub-home-and-category-pages/
  • Development: Development is blocked and waiting for designs and GIT/SVN shared repo.
  • Localisation (Rosetta release): More Rosetta sites got HelpHub activated. We are waiting for #meta team to import original HelpHub content. @audrasjb is going to open Trac ticket to hide automatic link to forums for locales that don’t use forums at .org.

Common APIs

@leogermani is proposing moving all documentation on internationalizing API and localising WordPress core, themes and plugins to newly published Common APIs Handbook. He will try to create all the necessary pages this week. After review the old pages from other Handbooks and Codex can be redirected.

Next Meeting

Next meeting will have focus on Docs Team Handbook. Everyone are invited to review their parts of Handbook and indicate things that are missing or are out of date. A plan on adding/fixing these should also be made.

What is my part of Handbook?

Every project has its part in Handbook. You know the best how to contribute to project(s) you are involved with and, therefore, you know better than the others if Handbook is complete and up to date for that specific project.

The team page is mapping responsibilities and will be used as general guide for Handbook parts ownership. If you are missing from the list or your responsibilities have changed since Team page was created, do let us know and we’ll fix it. Or you can fix it yourself.

Next meeting will be run by @felipeelia and will happen on
