We have work on the topics contributors prioritized in the last meetings:

  1. WordPress Sustainability PluginPlugin A plugin is a piece of software containing a group of functions that can be added to a WordPress website. They can extend functionality or add new features to your WordPress websites. WordPress plugins are written in the PHP programming language and integrate seamlessly with WordPress. These can be free in the Plugin Directory or can be cost-based plugin from a third-party supported by the WP Sustainability Team. Follow up on this project here and the last meeting’s comments here.
  2. WordCamp Handbook with sustainability ideas/guidelines. Follow up on this project and read some guidelines on how the work is happening here.
  3. Our participation as a Team in the Mentorship program and the question about attracting and engaging more contributors to the team.
  4. Feedback on the direction of the Five for the Future. 
  5. Sustainability Team Badges. Aside of sharing ideas, doubts and examples about which ones we should have and how they would be obtained, a GH issue has been creating for working on this.
  6. A self-approval system for moving forward. A way to prevent proposals from getting stuck due to lack of feedback has been suggested during this meeting.
