October 18th Support Team Meeting Summary

General announcements

We’re working on updating the support guidelines, it’s being done via GitHub and everyone is welcome to contribute at https://github.com/Clorith/wporg-support-guidelines

Our helpful tools (Also Viewing script and such), as noted in https://make.wordpress.org/support/handbook/appendix/helpful-tools/, have moved slightly. As userscripts no longer reliably update over gist files, it’s recommended to remove your existing one and re-install from the links provided on that page.

Checking in with international liaisons

Things are fine according to the international liaisons.

Getting ready for 5.0

We should start working on the new BBQ post (the master topic for the new release on the forums) soon. We can use references from both https://docs.google.com/document/d/1XaARXrJBF9CQ0qNHHbDxvvlZTtyrG7b9scjuFFJll7E/edit and https://github.com/WordPress/gutenberg/blob/master/docs/reference/faq.md
