WordPress 4.5.2 (and 4.5.3?)

Nothing new came up for the current release of WordPress, but 4.5.3 is on the horizon.

Attendance List

After a 10 to 5 vote, attendance lists (like the one above) will continue to be added to the meeting summaries.

Admin Access to Non-Native Languages for Support Team

After a 10 to 2 vote, Support Team admins will not be granted admin access to official support forums outside of the languages they are fluent in.


Support Team and Contributor badges are currently manually assigned, and we’re doing our best to keep up with them.

We’ll be revisiting the idea of a more obvious marker or color for mods/admins on the forum itself after the move to bbPressbbPress Free, open source software built on top of WordPress for easily creating forums on sites. https://bbpress.org. 2.
