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

  1. Newcomers onboarding – general Sustainability handbook. There is already a “Get involved” section that covers the basics and it was discussed to add the Track Sustainability focus link.
  2. WordPress Sustainability Plugin. Progress was made on the discussion and also decided what to do with WPSustainable 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 which is now closed (since it’s original creator it’s not able to maintain it). Also a proof of concept, of one of the plugins we are exploring was shared.
  3. WordCamp Handbook with sustainability ideas/guidelines. We continued working on it.
  4. Talk about the upcoming Yoast Contributor day, during which we’ll have a Sustainability table. All the team members will attend, we hope to see you there.
