New Team Reps

For teams that sent in two names, per the previous discussion only one is going to be the listed rep for these next 3 months. Having a backup that can fill in if you’re sick can be at the discretion of the team dynamic how you want that to work.

AccessibilityAccessibility Accessibility (commonly shortened to a11y) refers to the design of products, devices, services, or environments for people with disabilities. The concept of accessible design ensures both “direct access” (i.e. unassisted) and “indirect access” meaning compatibility with a person’s assistive technology (for example, computer screen readers).

Why is accessibility listed differently? At previous 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. discussions we talked about only having team reps for groups responsible for specific products/things, and having groups that were more aspect-based that might contribute to multiple product teams (such as accessibility and UIUI UI is an acronym for User Interface - the layout of the page the user interacts with. Think ‘how are they doing that’ and less about what they are doing.) get their reporting done via the teams where the specific actions were relevant, so that they’d be more hooked in to the main groups and the updates would be grouped by product. We can discuss this again if feelings have changed, but in the meantime I’ll go ahead and list Accessibility here as a standalone until such time that we do the legwork necessary to make sure their updates are being covered by the product teams.

I’ll get in touch with each team rep this week to confirm their understanding of the role, and will re-write the description on the about page.
