New Team Reps — Scheduling Monthly Chat

CoreCore Core is the set of software required to run WordPress. The Core Development Team builds WordPress. posted yesterday that @dh-shredder will be the rep, so now we have a rep lined up for all teams. First order of business is to set a team repTeam Rep A Team Rep is a person who represents the Make WordPress team to the rest of the project, make sure issues are raised and addressed as needed, and coordinates cross-team efforts. chat time for monthly chats. Since the previous time was chosen with different reps, I don’t think it’s fair to make the new reps use that same time without being given the opportunity to check for standing conflicts (like other chats, standing meetings, etc). The previous time was every second Tuesday at 16:00 UTC (i.e., today in just over an hour). Since that’s not much notice for all the new reps, I suggest we don’t use this day/time combo by default but see if there’s a time that works for all reps. Allow about an hour for the meeting, once a month.

Can all the new team reps reply to this message today with the following information:

  • Your time zone
  • Preference for business hours/after work/either
  • Preference for weekday/weekend/either
  • Any standing time blackouts — other team chats, specific time-based parenting responsibilities, standing appts, etc — that you would definitely not be available (if this list is long or you’re uncomfortable posting about your schedule here, you can also email/skype/irc me to pass on the info)


Based on responses will post tomorrow with a repeating day/time combo for chats for the coming three months.

Team Reps Chat/Hangout Time

Most popular selection was Weekday, 18:00 – 21:00 UTC.
Wednesdays are out due to dev chat. How about Thursday the 31st at 20:00? Would want one rep from each team. Sound off if you (primary reps) can make it, or if not, see if your 2nd rep can take your place.
