Two weeks ago we’ve rolled out 11 team o2s for testing. Today we’re pleased to announce that all 71 locales with a current release now have a team o2 "p2" is the name of the theme that blogs at make.wordpress.org 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 https://make.wordpress.org/polyglots/..
What should you use the o2 for?
A team o2 can be used for whatever your local community needs. For example, you can use it to talk about WordCamps, meetups, translations, support, documentation, meeting summaries, discussions about new ideas and the likes – in your language.
It can be a great platform for new people who would like to join your translation team. Or a great place to post about upcoming events and invite people to suggest topics. Basically, it’s an open wall for your community to discuss local issues. An official one, on your official local WordPress.org The community site where WordPress code is created and shared by the users.

How does o2 work?
A new handbook page “Team o2” has been added to provide some details about the new site, how to manage and use it. Read it and ask any questions that remain in the comments here.
Who has access to the new o2s?
All locale managers get an Editor level access to the new o2s which allows them to customize the site and moderate content. o2s are separate WordPress installs from your Rosetta site, but all your current Locale Managers and Editors are added as users by default. All WordPress.org users can post and comment on locale o2s.
We’re delighted to finally be able to add this feature for all teams and we hope you find it useful to get new contributors and make communication about contributing to WordPress easier in your language.
