    • Polyglots team survey: still looking for more volunteers. If you are curious to find out what we can do to encourage new/existing contributors to contribute, this will be interesting for you!
    • Mini-package idea: next step – a P2p2 "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/. post? What do we need to find out before making the decision?

TagTag Tag is one of the pre-defined taxonomies in WordPress. Users can add tags to their WordPress posts along with categories.

Think of them as keywords used for topics discussed in a particular post.: Weekly meetings

Don’t forget to remove this blockBlock Block is the abstract term used to describe units of markup that, composed together, form the content or layout of a webpage using the WordPress editor. The idea combines concepts of what in the past may have achieved with shortcodes, custom HTML, and embed discovery into a single consistent API and user experience..
