How you can get involved with the planning and weekly meetings
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,
and assisted with updating the blog and GitHub cards and admin this last week.
