In this meeting we will continue improving some sections of the team handbook, with special attention to the onboarding experience for (new) contributors. The goal is to create clear guidelines for a smooth onboarding experience for all the tools —our blog, GitHub and Slack— we have available. There are already some suggestions (pull requests) we could move forward.

Other ongoing projects and issues are:

  • WordCamp Handbook with sustainability ideas/guidelines. Learn how to contribute to this here and follow up on this project here.
  • 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. Some issues were brought out from the previous meeting:
    • Narrow down the candidate of tools for measuring websites weight or carbon emissions. Check it in GH.
    • Discuss if we want to use any of the existing plugins as starting point or we want to create one from the scratch.

If you have any updates on issues or projects that we have previously discussed, you are free to bring them up during the meeting.
