There was an update on actions since the suggestions last week to make it clearer when team meetings are scheduled.

The channel topic now links to a listing of the next meetings, that list now shows meetings 30 minutes after they’ve started, and the per-team meeting listings are more discoverable. On “Add to Calendar” functionality, the meta team referred to a ticket about iCal here.

Hosting Meeting Notes: July 8, 2019

Here’s the summary of our meeting in #hosting-community on Monday July 8th, 2019 at 1400 UTC (Slack archive).

Here is the agenda from the meeting.

Housekeeping

On Note-Taking

It would be great to have a rotating set of folks to take meeting notes so that no one person gets burned out, and so that when folks are away, there’s still someone to take notes for posting here.

If you’re interested, please comment on this post, or send @mike on WordPress Slack a message, and we’ll get a rotation set up! You don’t need any prior experience or permissions for writing on the site; this is a great way to get more involved with the team.

On Meeting Time

@mikeschroder noted that there’s still a post to come on metrics from meeting times. So far, it looks like there are about the same amount of attendees at the meetings, but with additional folks that weren’t able to attend before.

This is great! There has, however, been confusion about when the team is meeting each week.

Folks suggested:

PHP Recommendations

Extensions

Conclusions coming soon from the discussions around PHP extension recommendations. Please add any feedback on this post.

Versions

The Site Health team has requested feedback from the hosting team on how to set the recommendations for Site Health in the future.

There was discussion lead by @clorith on whether/the best way to test how recommending PHP versions affects new version adoption.

@clorith noted that the team would be taking all of the feedback and making a decision on the version bump soon.
