And now for a little housekeeping: It’s time to choose a team repTeam Rep A Team Rep is a person who represents the Make WordPress team to the rest of the project, make sure issues are raised and addressed as needed, and coordinates cross-team efforts..

What is a team rep?

The team rep has two major roles:

  • Report what’s happening with polyglots to the make/updates P2p2 "p2" is the name of the theme that blogs at use (and o2 is the accompanying plugin). When asked to post something "on the p2" by a member of the Polyglots team, that usually means you're asked to post on the team blog so other teams can keep up.
  • Report what’s happening with other teams back to the polyglots teamPolyglots Team Polyglots Team is a group of multilingual translators who work on translating plugins, themes, documentation, and front-facing marketing copy.

For more information see this post on the make/updates P2.

Who’s eligible?

Any member of the polyglots team (all of us here) is eligible to serve as team rep.

How will team reps be elected?

Since we’re a large team, all those interested in being a team rep should nominate themselves by commenting on this post. You can also nominate someone other than yourself.

On Sunday we’ll post a poll here with the list of nominations for all of you to vote on. The top two candidates will serve as team rep and backup team rep.
