Project Checks

@sagargurnani had completed #958.

@leonnugraha had completed and closed #958. He also gathered GutenbergGutenberg The Gutenberg project is the new Editor Interface for WordPress. The editor improves the process and experience of creating new content, making writing rich content much simpler. It uses ‘blocks’ to add richness rather than shortcodes, custom HTML etc. PRs for 6.5 that require dev notes and created a tracking issue for it.

@atachibana had completed and closed on #291.

Estela’s Updates

  1. She (@estelaris) had mentioned that @ninianepress, @anandau14 and herself were chosen as mentors for the mentorship program cohort 2.
  2. She would be mentoring 2 new contributors from Italy and will teach them documentation so they can get involved in translation. She had added them (@lighthouse79 and @matteoenna) to the #docs channel too.
  3. She had shared and requested everyone to read the documentation redesign post and leave comments, if any.
  4. She had also mentioned, It was suggested that the team identifies the documentation as “Docs for Non-Devs” or something similar. Apparently, developers click on the Help Hub documentation and get frustrated to find out it is not what they are looking for.
    • @leonnugraha suggested that it can be called something like – “Help Centre”, “User Guide” or “Intro Copy”.
    • @estelaris suggested – “Documentation – If you don’t code, this is for you” and said the “Help Centre” can be confused with the Support or Forum.

Open Floor

  1. @anandau14 mentioned that he will be guiding 2 mentees on contributing to docs. And, he added them (@ashishsthanp and @ranjanrakesh) to the #docs channel.
