The following is the status of our current projects:

The content migrationMigration Moving the code, database and media files for a website site from one server to another.

Redirects will need to be put into place for all content that has been moved.

2. Handbooks:

The Seattle Documentation Sprint was very productive. The 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 WordPress.org Plugin Directory https://wordpress.org/plugins/ or can be cost-based plugin from a third-party Developer Handbook made considerable progress – several pages were completed, reviewed, and are now marked at 100% for content. There are still 6 sections that need to be completed. The Theme Developer Handbook also made progress during the sprint.

3. Docs at WCSF:

The team discussed what project should be the focus of the 2-day team meetupMeetup All local/regional gatherings that are officially a part of the WordPress world but are not WordCamps are organized through https://www.meetup.com/. A meetup is typically a chance for local WordPress users to get together and share new ideas and seek help from one another. Searching for ‘WordPress’ on meetup.com will help you find options in your area. after WCSF during the 9/11/2014 team office hours. We reviewed the projects listed in @siobhan‘s post. Completing the developer handbooks is the project far enough along that the team could finish them during the meetup. @samuelsidler will work up a plan with both handbook editors for completing the content this week.
