What woud you like to see the Support Team work on at this year’s community summit?

This will be a recurring item till December and I’d like to hear all ideas.

Last year at the 2014 Community Summit the support team was very productive. The handbooks were consolidated, the “Your WordPress” sub-forum was put to bed, IRC was made more prominent on make/support and the #forums SlackSlack Slack is a Collaborative Group Chat Platform The WordPress community has its own Slack Channel at channel was kicked off. There was much celebration.

This year the Community Summit will be before WCUS and it is an invitation only event. Not everyone who is invited will be able to make it but we may be able to accommodate those participants with an online hangout.

What should be worked on at the event? I’d like to meet with the TRT and discuss what this team can do to support themes better. But any idea can be discussed and the floor is open. If there’s a consensus with the support team then an agenda can be documented.
