Core Performance Team Rep nominations

As discussed in our August 9 chat, now that we are an official coreCore Core is the set of software required to run WordPress. The Core Development Team builds WordPress. team, it’s time to vote for (at least) two Team Reps!

Full details on the Team Rep role are available here. The main functions of the Team Reps are to:

  1. Serve as representatives of the Team to the rest of the WordPress project
  2. Ensure that issues raised within the Team that could affect other teams as well as the broader WordPress project are communicated as needed
  3. Assist with coordinating any necessary cross-team efforts
  4. (Ideally) Post a weekly update on the Team’s work to https://make.wordpress.org/updates/
  5. Share a quarterly update on the Team’s work (including priorities, challenges, and big wins) with WordPress project leadership

Historically, Team Reps have served for a year, though that is not a hard and fast rule.
