Each meeting week has its own card on the Tasks board in the WordPress Marketing Repository.

You can add suggestions for the agenda, link to updates on GitHub tickets/ cards or Google documents.

You can give an asynchronous update on a task if you are unlikely to be able to attend the team meeting. The team works across the different time zones, and all contributions are very welcome. To add to a GitHub card, you just need to have a GitHub account, which is free to set up.


Thank you to contributors who have made suggestions and given feedback,
