Inventory of technical Parts from End-User docs

@estelaris is updating the Inventory of technical Parts from End-User docs, adding other articles to be reviewed and edited after the second site map revision.

Helphub redesign/reclassification project

@estelaris reported that the last revision of the site map has taken longer than expected and will write a post after the second revision is done. These items are still in the works:

  • Update the template with the developers block
  • Add a link to features and requirements (under the About menu item)
  • Finish updating the tickets for articles to rename, move to DevHub and delete
  • Update the categories/subcategories in HelpHub (per metaMeta Meta is a term that refers to the inside workings of a group. For us, this is the team that works on internal WordPress sites like WordCamp Central and Make WordPress. instructions) but not changing categories to any article yet

Updates on the Five for the Future program and proposed improvements

The idea is to track better and more contributions, especially those that are not code. As of last week, there are new items already showing in contributors profiles.

For docs team, it mean that opening/closing/being assigned to an issue in the Issue tracker repo is going to be displayed on your profile. Still we will have to track some things manually, like facilitating meetings in the #props Slack channel. For contributions done in GitHub see issue #178.

Open Floor

@audrasjb asked if anyone is also curating DevHub user contributed notes and he will write a draft on his process to facilitate other contributions.
