Office Hour Update: We have reviewed Drafts in Progress column in Learn Content Github GitHub is a website that offers online implementation of git repositories that can easily be shared, copied and modified by other developers. Public repositories are free to host, private repositories require a paid subscription. GitHub introduced the concept of the ‘pull request’ where code changes done in branches by contributors can be reviewed and discussed before being merged be the repository owner. https://github.com/ Project board.

Based on the discussions during the August 24th / 30th Supplemental SME Meeting and recent Monthly Faculty Meeting, folks have requested changes to the GitHub Content Development Board’s issue triaging and management. This proposal offers improvement suggestions to the current GitHub processes in order to clarify workflows for Faculty and Training Team Members.

Check out the feedback from last month and if you missed it you can add your comments to the post.
Course Creation – Making the process public
Jonathan is publicly documenting his process for course creation.
I’ve been thinking a lot about how to make the process of course creation public and open to feedback. As such I have decided to try and build the content publicly, by using a separate GitHub repository in my personal account. You can read more about my reasoning on this comment on the course issue in GitHub.
Allie has an idea for a course about creating courses.

Training team badges
Pooja has been working on a post regarding how training team badges are awarded. This will shortly be circulated to the team to review and comment.
The following pages in the handbook have been updated:
There is some confusion as to which GitHub Projects board should be used.
- This is the original board for content: https://github.com/orgs/WordPress/projects/2
- This board was created to test GitHub automation: https://github.com/orgs/WordPress/projects/33
Courtney shared the following thoughts :
We prefer the point where media comes in to be on LearnWP itself. We’ve had issues of media being hot linked to GitHub still. Also, all currently live posts should be revised using the revision plugin 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 WordPress.org Plugin Directory https://wordpress.org/plugins/ or can be cost-based plugin from a third-party tool on Learn itself. We moved to only creating on Learn because GitHub can intimidate a lot of folks. The old way of writing on GitHub was a much steeper step up for folks that don’t know it. I think the key for the team is to be consistent so we know where to go to view work someone has partially done.
