It is the standard license WordPress uses for Open Source licensing https://wordpress.org/about/license/. The GPL is a ‘copyleft’ license https://www.gnu.org/licenses/copyleft.en.html.

The Bee-Docs team meets each Monday at 14:00 UTC in the #meta-helphub channel over Slack.

@Prubhtej_9 reported that he completed the Scribd block editor documentation earlier that week & thanked @tacitonic for reviewing the doc.

@christiano.zanca reported that @glorialchemica started testing italian helphub translation. The Italian Team is providing support to this ticket to onboard more contributors.

Categorization Project

@estelaris reminded that we can still leave comments on the p2 post and this agenda item will be on hold until the finalization of Technical Writers for this project on the Season of Docs.

@bph suggested that we might need to review how block editor end user documentation is presented. It’s kind of buried, and probably needs a separate entrance and TOC.

External Linking Policy

We’ve witnessed vivid discussion on this agenda item.

@milana_cap proposed the following:

  • Anyone with a WordPress.org username can propose the link (as equivalent to anyone with a WordPress.org account can edit Codex). We could have a Google form or airtable or something similar. They need to fill out following fields (all mandatory):
  • External link
  • Placement link at wp.org (where this external link should be added to)
  • Short description (why this link is a good fit)
  • WordPress.org username
  • Consent (“I read the external linking policy rules…” checkbox)

If the proposed domain name appears to not follow the rules 3 times, the domain name gets on the “banned” list.

Review Process:

To make the review process less confusing, we can prepare the set of questions to which all answers have to be “yes” in order to allow a link.

  • 3 members of docs team completes a review (to avoid bias)
  • The review results are published on #docs team blog
  • domain name gets 5 links approved get the “trusted” status and we add them to the public list of trusted resources
  • If one allowed external link gets changed after being approved in a way that is against the rules, all links from that domain get removed, domain name loses its “trusted” status (with possibility to land on “banned” list perhaps?)

The Rules: (Brainstorming Ideas)

  • The content (article/tutorial) must not include any plugin, theme, service (hosting and similar) that is not bundled with WordPress clean install (which can be downloaded at WordPress.org)
  • The content, in its entirety or parts, must not be behind the payment or any sort of compensation from the reader (like, share etc)
  • The page where the content is can not contain visible ads for paid products and services (link in menu is OK but banners are not)

@kenshino suggested When people submit links, one of 2 things can happen

  • The link is added directly
  • The content is copied because it’s really good and they get attributed

The discussion centered from trusted links to commercial blogs, tutorials, promoting products, banners, attribution and even GPLGPL GPL is an acronym for GNU Public License.

He also mentioned that @ChloéBringmann along with the Mentors are finalizing the selection of the Technical Writers which needs to be reviewed by Google as well.

Open Floor

@tacitonic reported that @Lucila Stancatohad contacted him regarding the following matter:https://wordpress.slack.com/archives/C02RP4WU5/p1594123868113500

@chaion07 offered to make a specific Meeting Summary and Meeting Agenda Document Template in Google Docs so that anyone as a New Contributor can find a direct guideline to assist with the Note taking process & requested to write a p2 post for the same.

He offered to create a page for the sake of clarity. The exchanges that followed weighed the merits of adding licensing content to post and page footers vs. creating a page. 

@joyously is finding the new order of DevHub sections to be less useful than the prior version. She cited a closed ticket that resulted in the change. @Kenshino is pursuing a response from @atachibana.
