Plans for next Coffee Break
@chaion07 suggested that it would be a great idea to give preference to different time zones and more facilitators.
@milana_cap suggested that:

  • Write down what is expected from the host and who to contact for possible questions (like we have for facilitating the meeting).
  • Try to get the next host promised at the actual break.

Updates for this week:

  • I’m about to complete the final Developer Content section tonight.
  • Currently awaiting approval for these articles: External linking, obsolete docs.
  • The final item left is the Word list and usage dictionary. This would most likely be a running article and words would be added as and when they are deemed to be important enough.
