@audrasjb announced that French Documentation team had successfully translated 76 Helphub pages which actually covers 36.3% of total, now moving forward to make those pages publicly available for all French users. He also expressed his gratitude to everyone who worked on HelpHub internationalization and thinks that it was fantastic.

@milana_cap urged one of the Docs Team members to maintain the developer’s BlockBlock Block is the abstract term used to describe units of markup that, composed together, form the content or layout of a webpage using the WordPress editor. The idea combines concepts of what in the past may have achieved with shortcodes, custom HTML, and embed discovery into a single consistent API and user experience. Editor documentation. She also added by saying if you’re knowledgeable and experienced with developing on top of the block editor then you should try and help. @makewebbetter offered to help and @milana_cap would look after it.
