Team meeting: Checklists

Note: These are all in note form from the team meetings that took place over 2 days after the WordPress summit. When words like everyone and we are used, they are done for the group that was there. This was a cross section of the people who review and work on this project.

This meeting’s objective was to discuss having a checklist, people have asked but what should we do and what can we do to make the guidelines easier to not even need this?

People want it. This is in part due to complexity of guidelines.
Fix maybe is to fix the guideline complexity.
It’s a hard balance to not spoon feed and not leave out in cold.
Our workflows are personal – they also should be.
The need for a checklist is a response to the mess of content.
