Description

The hosting team is asking for two new channels for improved communications around our team and projects. The channels should be:

  • #hosting-team as a channel for the "core hosting" team to plan and prepare
  • #hosting-event as a channel to prepare the drafted WordPress event focused on Hosting

For the /here we would for now need the team reps @javiercasares and @crixu.

What's the difference between #hosting and #hosting-team? I'm unsure why a new channel is needed for planning purposes, when it should be as public as possible?

#5 follow-up: @Crixu

The #hosting channel should focus on the project work we're doing while the team channel should be a separat channel to plan ahead, get more people involved and move away from DMs and be more transparent.

Replying to Crixu:

The #hosting channel should focus on the project work we're doing while the team channel should be a separat channel to plan ahead, get more people involved and move away from DMs and be more transparent.

Seems like you should consider just using #hosting, no other teams really have a separate "planning" channel from "project work" - That would increase the transparency..

Is the Events separate from the Community organised events? It seems like #community-events would be a better place for it assuming y'all are working with the community events team (who has lots of experience in this realm..)

Agreed with dd32 here. Seems the #hosting channel (and maybe also #community-events) should suffice for these discussions. If the need for this becomes more pressing or this approach doesn't seem to work out, feel free to reopen with additional justification.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
