Outcomes

1. Tagline proposal: “ClassicPress: No Gutenberg. Great future!”

Approved for v1. A new tagline will be prepared for v2.

2. Team definitions and team leaders

The following teams and team leaders were decided:

  • Development led by James Nylen
  • Security led by James Nylen
  • Community led by Dustin Snider with support from Pieter Bos and Wade Striebel
  • Marketing led by Scott Bowler
  • Documentation – Dustin Snider to ask Pat Dumond to be Team Lead
  • Fundraising led by Scott Bowler
  • QA led by Rui Guerreiro

3. What/how for documentation.

We have been approved for an open source license of readme.io. The Community team will discuss the next steps and submit a proposal for documentation.

4. Define Slack Premium status (we are reaching the 10000 limit)

Slack Premium costs more than the project can afford. In order to get Premium for free we need to be a registered charity. To become a registered charity in the UK we need annual pledges of at least £5,000.

Scott will ask Slack for an exception whilst we get to this status.

5. Code style for project

WordPress Coding Standards will be used for version 1 and the topic will be revisited for v2.

6. Quality assurance

It was agreed that Rui Guerreiro will put a plan together for Quality Assurance.

7. Charles Lecklider has requested to join the committee. Scott Bowler is nominee.

Approved.

8. Keeping track of volunteers

It was agreed that the Community Team will put together a plan for keeping track of volunteers, most likely using the ClassicPress membership system.

Other Business

The idea of ClassicPress gigs (a jobs board where only contributers can apply for jobs) was raised by Scott Bowler in the community channel. Rui Guerreiro suggested this topic be discussed. There was a general consensus that providing Contributors with “perks” was a good idea and that the Community Team would explore ideas further.
