Support Team Meeting Updates for June 21st

General announcements

Our international support admins (not moderators) are now able to move topics between 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 Plugin Directory or can be cost-based plugin from a third-party/theme support forums. This does not mean we can (or should) move reviews though, and is limited to administrators as we do not see it as a frequent need.

If you’ve ever had that feeling of wanting to lead a WordPress release, now might be the time! The coreCore Core is the set of software required to run WordPress. The Core Development Team builds WordPress. team is looking for volunteers who are interested in helping lead upcoming minor releases, so please join the #core channel if this sounds interesting. You may also reach out to @jeffpaul in a direct message if you aren’t certain and wish to start the process privately.

WordPress 4.9.6

No new issues to report this week either.

To reduce the summary noise, moving forward we’ll only cover the latest WordPress version if there are new issues to report, or if there’s no issues but it’s a short time after a new release of WordPress.

Checking in with international liaisons

We had members from the SwedishRussianItalianHindiGreekBrazilianPakistani and German communities during this weeks meeting, a fantastic presence! Things seem to be going well, and hopefully we’re reaching more support related volunteers as time goes on.

Open floor

HelpHub migrations are going well, the underlying code has been merged, and the content it self is scheduled to be migrated in some time this week. Once this is done relevant Codex articles will be redirected, and we will make an announcement about its availability.

Once HelpHub lands, we’ll provide handbook articles its use, and how rosetta sites can take advantage of it as well.
