Moving HelpHub to the New Site

@estelaris is working with the 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. team to replace the /support site with the /documentation site. The new URLURL A specific web address of a website or web page on the Internet, such as a website’s URL is expected to be ready after January 17, 2023. In the meantime, contributors should refrain from adding, editing, or publishing content on the /support site as they will be lost.

Topics for the 2023 WordPress Community Summit

We should think, as a team, of possible topics for the Community Summit. What are the Documentation team needs that can, in full or partially, be solved in an environment where all other teams are present? 

@estelaris proposed the following topic: How will we collaborate with polyglots to translate the documentation and help them create the new sitemap? We need to push for translations. Otherwise, a lot of our work will stagnate as an English version only

@ninianepress wants to submit a topic that @milana_cap mentioned during last year’s WCEU – about a waterfall solution across teams for everyone to be able to collaborate on projects across all teams. @milana_cap added an example that the Training/Learning team has been discussing for a long time with the Docs team on how to make a tool that would help us all communicate better about release changes.

@atachibana pointed out several workflow issues for the HelpHub that can be improved. Through the discussions, we agreed that we could discuss these issues internally within the Docs team.

Open Floor

@wigno volunteered to review and publish documentation content. @leonnugraha will help him to get going.

@milana_cap has an idea for three little tools that should help with some workflows and will build something to test out:

  • Meeting agenda generator
  • Meeting summary generator
  • New contributor orientation tool/onboarding tool

@estelaris will ask the meta team about the users’ access when the /documentation site is live.

Props to @leonnugraha for writing this meeting summary.
