@milana_cap was at WordCampWordCamp WordCamps are casual, locally-organized conferences covering everything related to WordPress. They're one of the places where the WordPress community comes together to teach one another what they’ve learned throughout the year and share the joy. Learn more. Finlandia Contributor DayContributor Day Contributor Days are standalone days, frequently held before or after WordCamps but they can also happen at any time. They are events where people get together to work on various areas of There are many teams that people can participate in, each with a different focus. last week. Many new contributors. The takeaway is that it is difficult to start contributing, perhaps we should include workflow instructions in each issue.

@anandau14 submitted an article for review and @milana_cap added [status] * labels to issues in WordPress End-User Docs Inventory. @noumantech and @sagargurnani continue working on their assigned issues.

@estelaris attended WordCamp Pontevedra (spain) where she gave a talk on the importance of translating end-user documentation, as well as started working on the first steps for the main  translation project. And during contributor day, the Spanish team started working on a writing style guide based on what we have in docs for English language.

@MuhammedIqbal showed interest in beginning translation in Malayalam.

@milana_cap suggested to stop adding new release changes to the same issue and instead, open new issues for each release. The reasoning behind it “imagine someone just starting to translate to their local and they see 5 versions of update.”

@noumantechasked for the procedure to write a post for the Make blog and was explained by @milana_cap and @estelaris that on the blog we can only write about documentation and related topics. Always check with team reps about the topic and ask another contributor to review grammar/style/tone. Having access to the docs Make blog doesn’t give us access to any of the other Make blogs, each one belongs to different teams and should check with team reps when wanting to write about a topic relevant to another team.
