We had our first meeting and walked through the editorial calendar and tracking doc for the blog. We added a few items to the editorial calendar and even published a post we have pending review.

Due to this being the first attempt, we had a few points to adjust for

  • We made the tracking doc public so anyone interested in helping with curating news can do so
  • We need to document the publication process and create a “pre-flight” checklist before you smash the big Publish button. What options to set, how to add categories/tags, scheduling posts, etc.
  • We didn’t take notes! Even though I created an etherpad. :/ (I’ve added these notes to the etherpad)

I tried to follow the meeting through the etherpad, which didn’t work out. Now I know why. Thanks for sharing the notes.

Oh no. That’s something we’ll have to figure out. Remote, non-video participation. I’m creating a phab tasks so I don’t forget. :) https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T228082
