Upcoming Meeting 

Project Checks

@lumiblog expressed commitment to working on #1496 and #1497 this coming week. 

@milana_cap has been writing an article for the code dev blog in the past week. 

@leonnugraha reviewed and closed #1289 and #701.  He combined and updated some unassigned and abandoned issues. He also updated some issues’ labels.

Open Floor

Members voted and finalized that the following would be the new meeting names:

@milana_cap was asked to update the meeting names on the Make WordPress Documentation page. 

@estelaris shared that she has been:

  • Creating the project plan and tickets for the translation project for the Spanish team. She mentioned that the project plan and tickets can be viewed at this link.
  • Reviewing and testing the mobile documentation. She expressed that she had never used the WP app before and found it quite cool, adding that testing takes time.
  • Creating tickets for screenshots/videos for the mobile app articles she reviewed. She mentioned that these tickets will be updated by @samanthaxmunoz and her team at WP Engine, noting that they are good tickets for new contributors.

@estelaris also announced that there will not be a Monthly Planning Meeting on June 11, as the team will be on their way to WCEU (WordCamp Europe) and will have a contributor day on June 13.

The members discussed renaming the “Installation” categoryCategory The 'category' taxonomy lets you group posts / content together that share a common bond. Categories are pre-defined and broad ranging. on the WordPress documentation site, as the articles currently in that category do not really fit under installation. The articles are:

  • Hosting WordPress
  • SEO
  • Automated Installation
  • Troubleshooting Login Issues

@leonnugraha suggested renaming it to “Setup”. @sagargurnani thought “Automated Installation” could stay in that category, but the other articles should move elsewhere.

@milana_cap raised concerns that “Setup” is too broad and other things like installing themes/plugins, customizing, etc. could also fall under that category name.

The team decided to table the discussion for the next meeting to allow folks to think about a better category name. In the meantime, @estelaris moved the “Troubleshooting Login Issues” articles to the FAQs section.
