Daylight Saving Time Meeting Planning

In a few weeks, the first of many parts of the world will start or stop the observance of Daylight Saving Time.

  • March 8 – US/CA starts DST
  • March 29 – UK/EU starts DST
  • April 5 – AU ends DST

Team reps, during your next meeting please discuss how and when you will adjust the meeting times. In the past, many teams have kept the current UTC time until the UK started DST, then moved the meeting forward. That might be different for you depending on where your contributors are.

If I’ve missed a DST change, please let me know in the comments!

2020-02-06 forum support team meeting

https://wordpress.slack.com/archives/C02RQC6RW/p1581008447159700

  • quick summary of the forum ticket scrub
  • all OK with the international fora
  • discusson of javascript issues when http/https mismatch occurs on sites. Will Chrome 80 fix this?
  • open floor:
    • macmanx proposes that Otto write guidelines for moderators and publish them on make.wordpress.org/support. There’s been a lot of pushback on moderation lately.
    • jnash proposes a capability to allow some users to “moderate” the spam queue (or at least, tag items as spam and pending). This led to discussions about whether we just
    • need more moderators. jnash is creating a trac ticket to further the discussion
