Our Three Big Ideas for 2022!

2022 is going to be a big year for WordPress as we get more and more people to use the new editor (and as a result make the editor even better)! We’re also going to be gearing up for a our 20th anniversary next year 😮 —I can’t believe this project has been around for so long!

For easy tracking, here are the big focuses for this year:

  1. Drive adoption of the new WordPress editor (though education, awareness, and better content for new WordPressers).
  2. Support open sourceOpen Source Open Source denotes software for which the original source code is made freely available and may be redistributed and modified. Open Source **must be** delivered via a licensing model, see GPL. alternatives for all site-building necessities (through supporting Openverse, our suite of directories, and the way we present ourselves to the world).
  3. Open Source stewardship (through maintenance of our community programs, leading by example, and other project as we find them).
  4. Bonus: Get ready for WP20!

Read more about these big ideas and more specific goals for each or, if you’re a team repTeam Rep A Team Rep is a person who represents the Make WordPress team to the rest of the project, make sure issues are raised and addressed as needed, and coordinates cross-team efforts., send me your thoughts on how your teams can join the effort!

Team Rep Nominations, 2022

If you haven’t done so already, it is time to start the process to select new reps for your teams!

The Role

Each team has one or two representatives, abbreviated as “reps”. Team reps are responsible for communicating on behalf of the group to the other contributor groups via weekly updates, as well as occasional chats.

As a reminder, it is not called “team lead” for a reason. While the people elected as team reps will generally come from the pool of folks that people think of as experienced leaders, the team repTeam Rep A Team Rep is a person who represents the Make WordPress team to the rest of the project, make sure issues are raised and addressed as needed, and coordinates cross-team efforts. role is designed to change hands regularly.

The Process

The process generally just has three steps:

  1. Make a call for nominations.
  2. Vote on the people who accepted the nominations.
  3. Announce and rejoice!

If you have any questions, please ask in the comments!
