2. Weekly Docs Chat: During this week’s chat, we discussed changing the format of our weekly Docs team chat on Thursdays from a formal meeting to general office hours, with a weekly P2P2 P2 or O2 is the term people use to refer to the Make WordPress blog. It can be found at post for the individual teams to post their weekly status update to. With the team working on individual projects, most of the discussion takes place during the weekly project meetings rather than the general chat on Thursday. The full proposal is posted on Make/Docs for the team to review and discuss further. (8/7/2014 chat log)
