We’ll be putting a post for the 5.0 Master List to be prepared on make/support some time this week.
In other news, we will be holding another support volunteer orientation during the WCUS contributor day Contributor Days are standalone days, frequently held before or after WordCamps but they can also happen at any time. They are events where people get together to work on various areas of https://make.wordpress.org/ There are many teams that people can participate in, each with a different focus. https://2017.us.wordcamp.org/contributor-day/ https://make.wordpress.org/support/handbook/getting-started/getting-started-at-a-contributor-day/.. Like previous iterations it will be pushed through slack Slack is a Collaborative Group Chat Platform https://slack.com/. The WordPress community has its own Slack Channel at https://make.wordpress.org/chat/., as link sharing and similar is easier that way. A make/support post will be filed for this as well, and non-attendees are also welcome to take part.

And finally, a reminder that it’s OK to not know everything, feel free to skip questions that you’re uncomfortable with/don’t feel like you know enough about. If you’re not happy answering a question, you are in no way required to take it on!
