Polyglots Team Update 18th December

This week

Group chat about:

  • Inclusion of locale activity on the user profiles — according to @jjj, in 2013, we’re going to try moving everything into BP’s activity stream tables, likely with callbacks to reduce the load where we can.
  • Global.wordpress.orgWordPress.org The community site where WordPress code is created and shared by the users. This is where you can download the source code for WordPress core, plugins and themes as well as the central location for community conversations and organization. https://wordpress.org/ — should it exist and if so what does it look like? — Everyone agrees it should, with all the (translatable) info on how to contribute, similar to the make page. Cátia will be preparing a spec.
  • Strategy for reviving locale forums with the 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 WordPress.org Plugin Directory https://wordpress.org/plugins/ or can be cost-based plugin from a third-party format — according to @nacin, this is not a complicated task, but before we start it, I need to list all the relevant questions regarding the special way in which permissions are handled in rosetta (i.e. editor, validator and moderator profiles). To keep in mind: https://core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/19011 for international forums urls.
  • Updates to the rosetta theme to match wordpress.org — much of this will open sourced by @nacin within a month, we can then start contributing there.
  • Review team reps voting results — are they in?

No chat/hangout scheduled for next week, as everyone is mostly gone for the week.
