I apologise if I missed someone or if your username at 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/. and WordPress.orgWordPress.org The community site where WordPress code is created and shared by the users. This is where you can download the source code for WordPress core, plugins and themes as well as the central location for community conversations and organization. https://wordpress.org/ is not the same and I couldn’t find the latter. Let me know in comments and I’ll add or modify it.

Thank you everyone and hope to see you all in person at some other Contributor Day(s) where we can share the cookies and hugs. Until then stay safe and take care of yourselves.
