Dan Danilo and Jorge check out the Handbook…

Dan, Danilo, and Jorge: check out the Handbook schedule posted here. It contains deadlines for parts of the handbook that you’re writing.

To the furthest extent possible I think we should try and stay ahead of the curve and create basic documents in all categories – should be easy since we’re splitting the work and have immediate peers that we can pingPing The act of sending a very small amount of data to an end point. Ping is used in computer science to illicit a response from a target server to test it’s connection. Ping is also a term used by Slack users to @ someone or send them a direct message (DM). Users might say something along the lines of “Ping me when the meeting starts.” about layout and content.

I’ll get a draft handbook overview started with placeholder pages – should be a good way to kick this off. Hello 2013!

Plan for migrating mobile dev blogs and forums…

Plan for migrating mobile dev blogs and forums as discussed in #wordpress-mobile earlier today.

  1. Forums:
    o Create new forums titled “Mobile” here with “Requests & Feedback”, “How-To & Troubleshooting”
    o Add a way to select app when posting new threads
    o Close old forums and add note about the new ones
    o Migrate old forums over to be sub-forums of “Mobile”
  2. Dev blogs:
    o Migrate dev blogs, starting with a less busy one. Categorize all posts from the import with the name of the platform for good slugs and easy categorization in the future.
    o Add way to select platform when posting new posts on make/mobile
    o Map old URLs to post on make/mobile
    o Close old dev blog, repeat
  3. Landing sites (including official blogs): hold off until other migrations are complete. We’ll want to figure out how and where the landing sites will live in the WordPress.orgWordPress.org The community site where WordPress code is created and shared by the users. This is where you can download the source code for WordPress core, plugins and themes as well as the central location for community conversations and organization. https://wordpress.org/ infrastructure.

@nacin is going to look into Forums and Dev blogs starting next week. @aerych is helping out where needed.
