  • Please feel free to jump into the conversation on Trac #48116, regarding PHP extension usage tracking.

Hosting Matrix Conversation Continues

  • @antpb has created a draft of a recommended matrix for the page. Please feel free to leave comments or suggestions on the doc itself.
  • @hristo-sg provided some feedback in Slack.
  • @mikeschroder expressed support for the idea of building something that serves user needs.
  • @javiercasares mentioned that there was a Contributor Day at PonteWordCamp with 15 WordPressers. Feedback and conclusions can be seen here. Feel free to leave comments, as well. @mikeschroder mentioned this feedback might be worth some PRs for updates to the handbook.
  • @hristo-sg suggested that the project should focus on a particular audience.
  • Concern about traffic to the /hosting page was brought up, particularly regarding traffic trends and types of visitors. @hristo-sg stated that people who are new to WordPress visit the /hosting page most often.

Open Floor

  • Folks present thought we could talk about updating the handbook during the next meeting, and that this would be a good idea to do between now and when 5.3 is released.

Next Meeting

The next meeting will be in #hosting-community on Wednesday, October 9, 2019 at 1700 UTC. Hope to see you then!
