Public repositories are free to host, private repositories require a paid subscription. GitHub introduced the concept of the ‘pull request’ where code changes done in branches by contributors can be reviewed and discussed before being merged be the repository owner. https://github.com/, some cards have to be transferred manually. The card relating to the series board are being transferred manually once status updates can be made.
If you are looking for a card you think has to still be transferred, you can find it in the previous repositories or the rolling tasks board (this is being transferred to the task board above).

WordPress has grown to more than 30% market share because of its ease of use and its powerful feature set. Competitors, both commercial and open-source, are marketing themselves aggressively, though. WordPress needs a response to that. Marketing has always happened, the Marketing team strives to make more of that marketing fit with an overall strategy.
The first iteration divided the focus into four subgroups, also known as the “The Four Horsemen of WordPress.org Marketing.” It suggested that we work on paths for marketing WordPress to developers, to agencies and clients, to end-users and the WordPress community itself as individual sub groups. Through mid 2017 the team developed with many initiatives starting, but there was a need for tools to build cohesive communication.
After many months of small improvements the next largest shift happened at WordCampWordCampWordCamps are casual, locally-organized conferences covering everything related to WordPress. They're one of the places where the WordPress community comes together to teach one another what they’ve learned throughout the year and share the joy. Learn more. US 2017, we shifted to a single unified vision, which can be found at the top of make.wordpress.org/marketing:
“Our vision for the Marketing Team is to be the go-to resource on strategy and content for other WordPress teams.”
In support of this vision we’ve written copy for some of the WordPress releases, Tweets and blog posts for other teams and events like #WPTranslationDay, the landing Page for Server Happy PHPPHPPHP (recursive acronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor) is a widely-used open source general-purpose scripting language that is especially suited for web development and can be embedded into HTML. http://php.net/manual/en/intro-whatis.php. upgrade project, MetaMetaMeta is a term that refers to the inside workings of a group. For us, this is the team that works on internal WordPress sites like WordCamp Central and Make WordPress. Tags for Dot Org Pages, and much more. We help bring people together to improve communications for those new or in the community, including through our contributor event marketing group.
