On Make/Updates, there was a proposal this week to create a WordPress Community Code of Conduct (CCoC), which promotes safety and inclusion for all community members in community spaces — like the WordCamp Code of Conduct already does it for WordCamps.
Proposal: WordPress Community Conduct Project
Jenny Wong published the post »Proposal: WordPress Community Conduct Project«, which does exactly that: proposing a community conduct for the whole WordPress community. She writes:
»The Community Conduct Project aims to expand the scope of the [WordCamp] Code of Conduct to promote the same values of safety and inclusion in all official community spaces including WordCamps, WordPress Meetups, official fora and websites including comment sections, and official chat channels (specifically Slack and IRC).«
To reach this goal, there needs to be work done, for example, define who is a »WordPress community member«, where the CCoC should apply, et cetera. If you want to help, check out her post and leave a comment below it!
- »What’s New in Gutenberg? (May 29th)«. Among other things, the team updated the demo content to showcase more blocks.
- »Dev Chat Summary: May 31st (4.8 week 5)«. The final 4.8 release is planned for June 8.
- »WordPress 4.8 Release Candidate 2«.
- »Updating the Community Team Glossary«.
- »Proposal for new feature on WordCamp.org sites to hide certain pages from WordPress/Search Engine search results.«
- »Beta Testers Needed for New WordCamp Theme«. Before the theme becomes available for all WordCamps, it should be tested by three to five upcoming camps, to get feedback.
