@anandau14 prepared the draft of Page List BlockBlock Block is the abstract term used to describe units of markup that, composed together, form the content or layout of a webpage using the WordPress editor. The idea combines concepts of what in the past may have achieved with shortcodes, custom HTML, and embed discovery into a single consistent API and user experience., received the access of docs site, will publish the prepared docs soon.

@milana_cap created few new issues from HelpHub feedback, added another workflow for GH (applying developer label one other devhub labels are applied), finished and published post for core dev blog, did onboarding session with @ninianepress

@femkreations 1st and 2nd reviewed #687 and #282 and scheduled the articles for publishing, 1st reviewed #676, reviewed all the pages under #899 for replacing the Reusable blocks to Patterns and closed. Did a 2nd review of #949 and closed it. Onboarded a new contributor for #986 and created tracker for consolidating More rich text editing options #986. Moved few more tasks to the 6.3 from 6.2 board

@femkreations mentioned we still have work to be done before August 8th. The tasks have been sorted into medium priority tasks and high priority tasks on the 6.3 project board. If you are new to the Docs team, you can select from the list of good first issues.

Question: How to open an issue

@cold-iron-chef noticed there’s no Vimeo Block documentation at all and asked how she can open issues. @estelaris informed she should go to this link and confirmed no permission is required. Later @cold-iron-chef confirmed she will be adding that link to the list of embeds.

Question: Move closed tasks automatically to the Done column in GitHubGitHub GitHub is a website that offers online implementation of git repositories that can easily be shared, copied and modified by other developers. Public repositories are free to host, private repositories require a paid subscription. GitHub introduced the concept of the ‘pull request’ where code changes done in branches by contributors can be reviewed and discussed before being merged be the repository owner.

@milana_cap mentioned it should work automatically but @femkreations mentioned it is not possible to do so in 6.3 board. So cold-iron-chef mentioned that if we tag the pull request with closes #
 it will close the issue when that’s merged.

@milana_cap mentioned @stevenlinx created the board, so may be he can take a look. Also she mentioned closing the tickets from repository should move the tickets automatically.

@femkreations confirmed that the problem exists even when the tickets are closed from repository and it only exists for 6.3

@estelaris jumped in and asked if we shall create a page in the handbook with instructions on how to create boards with all the bells and whistles you like, for release leads? @milana_cap and @femkreations agreed on this. So, @estelaris asked if @femkreations can open the issue and add the bells and whistles. @femkreations confirmed she will do that.

@femkreations created this issue in response and @stevenlinx chimed in after the meeting and mentioned he added the features as needed. It’s in Workflows of the Project: when an item is closed or a PR is merged, set Status to Done. He asked @femkreations to check. @femkreations confirmed the issue is fixed and the issue moves automatically to the Done column.

@femkreations made some updates to the 6.3 Project board columns. We now have a new Edit after 1st Review  which means waiting for the content edits after the 1st Review. Makes it easy to see the progress at a glance.

Open Floor

It was birthday of @estelaris and she was in Venice! Happy Birthday @estelaris!
