Howdy everyone! I think it’s time for Marketing to have its own Make section on .org – as I posted a few months ago on this p2 with lots of ideas moving forward, we’ve had several Marketing contributor day Contributor Days are standalone days, frequently held before or after WordCamps but they can also happen at any time. They are events where people get together to work on various areas of https://make.wordpress.org/ There are many teams that people can participate in, each with a different focus. https://2017.us.wordcamp.org/contributor-day/ https://make.wordpress.org/support/handbook/getting-started/getting-started-at-a-contributor-day/. groups (3 at WordCamp WordCamps 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. EU, and one at WCUS a week ago), the Security whitepaper was released mainly for marketing reasons (and now has been translated into Japanese, Romanian, Indonesian, and Spanish, with several other languages in progress), and the WCUS Contributor Day group actually shipped a WP Flyer/Sales Sheet we’re proud to share with the WP world and get people using it and translating it.
There’s a lot of work to do, and there are a lot of people who are interested in contributing. We need some space!
Just a note of clarification: the marketing team would focus on materials which help people/individuals sell/market WordPress the software – i.e., the security whitepaper and other whitepapers, the sales sheet, the open source Open Source denotes software for which the original source code is made freely available and may be redistributed and modified. Open Source **must be** delivered via a licensing model, see GPL. presentation, etc.
I am more than happy to help moderate / staff / populate the p2, and set up monthly or biweekly meetings while we staff up.
Update: the new Marketing p2 is here: https://make.wordpress.org/marketing/ We’ll start populating it and getting it moving now!
