General announcements

Summary posts after meetings will moving forward be posted if there are updates that need sharing or decisions that need discussing.

Checking in with international liaisons

Members of our community from Russia, Sweden, Italy, Spain, Bangladesh and India were available for this weeks chat, even while WordCampWordCamp WordCamps are casual, locally-organized conferences covering everything related to WordPress.

One who smiles
