@mkaz basically the block editor and FSE updates for 5.8 reaching a finalized state, and he’ll work on updating the dev docs for those parts in the spreadsheet.

@kenshino agreed to @zzap and said when he tried to look for “What the hell is the endpoint for Site Health” and couldn’t find any official information

@kenshino was talking about @Courtney’s proposal and @zzap has been talking to @mkaz about this and he thinks it could be a good thing to propose once we get the team-reps channel. The doc team thinks that core dev should be paired with someone from docs as soon as the new feature is started developing. Or perhaps each component should have someone from docs looking after it and working with devs. Of course, we don’t have enough people but I’m thinking that this might actually attract more contributors due to close work with devs.
