This weeks meeting is estimated to take longer than our usual 30 minutes since we have several topics.
Meeting times and agendas
- Since we don’t have agendas each week and because people are not able to participate every week, the suggestion is to have two meetings a month: one with a set agenda, and one with an open floor.
- The meetings are estimated to be one hour long, compared to the 30 minutes we have now.
- We will try to document topics that come up often, maybe on the FAQ page or a dedicated meeting topics page.
- If you want to lead a meeting please DM one of the Team Leads which dates you are available.
- The two weeks per month when we don’t have meetings should be dedicated to working on our ongoing projects.
- We would like to remind everyone to please stick to the topics so that we can have productive meetings.
Our next review shindig is on saturday july 8.
Two themes rule
We suggest allowing authors to have two themes in the queue, up from one. This should then be evaluated after one month.

- Updates via SVN Apache Subversion (often abbreviated SVN, after its command name svn) is a software versioning and revision control system. Software developers use Subversion to maintain current and historical versions of files such as source code, web pages, and documentation. Its goal is to be a mostly compatible successor to the widely used Concurrent Versions System (CVS). WordPress core and the wordpress.org released code are all centrally managed through SVN. https://subversion.apache.org/.
Discussion: What can we do now/short term?

- GPL GPL is an acronym for GNU Public License. It is the standard license WordPress uses for Open Source licensing https://wordpress.org/about/license/. The GPL is a ‘copyleft’ license https://www.gnu.org/licenses/copyleft.en.html. This means that derivative work can only be distributed under the same license terms.
