Focus of meeting

The agenda was proposed by Daniele Scasciafratte with the following points:

  1. What is missing to release the 1.0.0 (LTS version) package?
  2. What websites do we need to release? And who will be responsible for them?
  3. How many people are on slack and how many are missing to join (based on emails number)?
  4. Can we can have Slack for non-profit gratis?


Discussion was mainly focused on point 1 and many questions were raised, answers offered and decisions were made. It was agreed that

  • Tim Kaye will verify that we’re allowed to use WordPress endpoints (initial review seems positive), and if so, WordPress endpoints will be used for plugin checks and ClassicPress endpoints will be used for everything else
  • The decision to show WordPress events has been deferred as a Github issue
  • Zipped versions of ClassicPress will be hosted on Github
  • We will handle localisation using Glotpress and hosting/setup will be handled by Daniele Scasciafratte and Scott Bowler
