Zoom onboarding session and Contributor Mentorship Program

@ninianepress is setting up an onboarding Zoom call and is still open for new contributors who want to join. The session will be a live onboarding training and live Q&A.

She’s currently collecting information on who would like to attend the event to determine the session time. If you’re interested, you can contact her on Slack or comment in the Slack thread.

@milana_cap proposed the idea of having an onboarding cycle every one or two months. In addition, @jominney pointed out the Contributor Mentorship Program, which the Docs Team is picked to be one of the teams for the project pilot.

If you would like to learn more about the Contributor Mentorship Program, read this Community Team blog post.

@stevenlinx informed the team about the new feature in GitHub for creating a project template.

This feature streamlines the tedious project board creation process that the Docs Team does and uses for every WordPress release. @stevenlinx has created a template for the WordPress release project board called WP X.Y Documentation Template, and it was also used for the creation of the WP 6.3 project board.

Open floor

@estelaris brought up a discussion about the team dashboard and stats related to the WCEU’s Q&A session and what the Docs Team would like to measure.

@pekkakortelainen suggested having a graph to visualize the amount of opened and closed issues.

@ninianepress suggested the following points:

  • How many issues are open
  • How many issues have been closed
  • How many new ones have been created in the last month
  • The rate at which new issues are open
  • The rate at which issues are closed

@milana_cap suggested that we can track the number of tasks that the team does:

  • Updated articles
  • Updated screenshots
  • Reviewed articles
  • Run meetings
  • Written agendas
  • Written summaries
  • Onboarding sessions
  • Time for a fully onboarded contributor

The discussion for the team stats will be continued on Docs Team Contributor Day and the next meeting if necessary.

Introducing the Advanced Administration handbook

During the recategorization of the documentation, the team removed several articles that were developer-focused or included a lot of developer-jargon. All these articles are now part of the Advanced Administration Handbook and will be removed from /documentation/devhub/.

The redirects have been applied as indicated in issue #59. Some articles have been merged to provide better explanations. Although, the maintenance is still ongoing, most of the articles have been updated.

Please report any issues to the documentation GitHub issue tracker.

Props to @ryelle and @javiercasares for working on this issue.
