We’re up to about 22.6 million downloads. We’ve been posting about 6.0 on the main WP social media accounts at least once, but sometimes 2x per week and these posts have been performing above-average with regards to engagement.

  • What’s in store for WordPress in the months to come? You can read this early planning article from Matias Ventura: https://make.wordpress.org/core/2022/06/04/roadmap-to-6-1/
  • Did you know that the GutenbergGutenberg The Gutenberg project is the new Editor Interface for WordPress. The editor improves the process and experience of creating new content, making writing rich content much simpler. It uses ‘blocks’ to add richness rather than shortcodes, custom HTML etc. https://wordpress.org/gutenberg/ editor, which is the foundation of Full Site Editing, has new releases every-other-week? Here’s what’s new in the latest release, 13.4. https://make.wordpress.org/core/2022/06/10/whats-new-in-gutenberg-13-4-8-june/.
  • Did you know that Gutenberg is not just for WordPress? It can be used as an editor for almost anything since it is open-source too. In fact, it is being used as the main editor for Tumblr and Day One (https://wptavern.com/gutenberg-editor-now-in-testing-on-tumblr-and-day-one-web-apps).
  • There are some folks working on the Gutenberg page for a refresh in messaging and design and the hope is to include information on how to leverage the Gutenberg code base for other projects, including providing examples. Dates for 6.1 and beyond are not set, but there is some work in coreCore Core is the set of software required to run WordPress.

  • @jpantani hosted a group that went out on a field trip. They chatted with other contributors to find out what their favorite WordPress features were and how these impacted their lives. In order to group those in a helpful way, we also asked which user group described the respondents best. The same group was requested to ask around for websites and platforms that deserved a spot on the WordPress Showcase, so we now have some additional suggesgtions for that too.
  • @yvettesonneveld hosted a group that worked on microcopy for some WordPress 6.0 related content on the Learn.WordPress.org platform.
  • @dansoschin will go through the drafts this week, they will be edited if needed and will hopefully be shining on the channels soon.

  • From Nicholashttps://make.wordpress.org/marketing/handbook/getting-involved/new-contributor-orientation/ has been updated to fix links, add intros, and add github training links. We’ll want to revisit this area after the Training team has released more contributor training resources (sometime after WCEU).
  • From Nicholashttps://github.com/orgs/WordPress/teams/marketing/ now has the team description and wapuu.
  • From Nicholas: I’ve added several regular contributors to the GitHub Marketing team and added the Marketing Contributor badge to their WordPress.org profiles. I’d propose that team reps (current and future) review these each month during documentation sprints.
  • From Nicholas: I’ve reviewed the current Showcase process and documentation.
  • From AbhaUpdate on Issue 40 – existing confirmed and reviewed videos which are live on YouTube for onboarding to be added to Learn WP ahead of WCEU, if possible.
  • From AbhaUpdate on Issue 14 – GitHub labels and tags consolidation
  • From AbhaUpdate on Issue 37 – Promote call to translating hosting pages. Moved to other teams migrationMigration Moving the code, database and media files for a website site from one server to another. Most typically done when changing hosting companies. column. Note this is also set to be reviewed post WCEU by Polyglots, who will advise marketing if they need assistance with promoting a call. The issue has been closed for now with agreement from polyglots.
  • From AbhaUpdate on Issue 35 – TracTrac Trac is the place where contributors create issues for bugs or feature requests much like GitHub.https://core.trac.wordpress.org/. Ticket commenting – moved to column for migration to another team’s board. Note: if this is found to be needed prior to WCEU, it may need to be reopened.
