Docs Team Update: August 21, 2014

The following is the status of our current projects:

1. DevHub:

The team did a bug scrub of open MetaMeta Meta is a term that refers to the inside workings of a group. For us, this is the team that works on internal WordPress sites like WordCamp Central and Make WordPress. tickets. There are 6 tickets that will require changes to the parser before they can be worked on. We need a volunteer to step up and help maintain the parser so these can move forward.

Implemention of changes for both examples and explanations in the code reference should happen this week.

2. Handbooks:

The handbooks received a lot of attention from both the WordCampWordCamp WordCamps are casual, locally-organized conferences covering everything related to WordPress. They're one of the places where the WordPress community comes together to teach one another what they’ve learned throughout the year and share the joy. Learn more. Grand Rapids and WordCamp Maine contributor days. Huge thanks to all the new contributors!

Both handbooks are progressing, and the focus is now on getting them into a usable state so they can be migrated to their permanent home at 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.

The team is considering having weekly online handbook sprints to encourage contributors to work on the handbooks on a regular basis.
