GitHub > WPCollab / WPCollab ?

Should we create an issue-only repo on GitHub?
Currently I open non-code related issues on https://github.com/WPCollab/wpcollab-plugin-skeleton/issues?state=open but this is not really ideal, is it?

What do you think.

P.S.: When I use “guys” in the future, girls do not be offended, please. :-)

Here’s what I think we need to have on the agenda:

Hey guys awesome idea How do I become…

Hey guys awesome idea! How do I become involved?

Trello Plugin Scope

Let’s discuss what we want the Trello plugin to do and what is in scope for initial release and for future releases.

Be sure to check out their API docs: https://trello.com/docs/

Christian mentioned their are some PHP API wrappers on GitHub. Figuring out which, if any to use or if we can just borrow from the official Trello plugin (http://plugins.svn.wordpress.org/wp-trello/) should be part of the discussion/

Hello Emoji Update & Moving Forward

We are roughly one week into this and we are almost done with our first plugin Hello-Emoji. If you haven’t contributed yet, now is the perfect time to download the plugin, try it out and tell us what you think, or open an issue to report a problem you found with it.

While we’ve had some confusion, and learned some lessons along the way, I think this cross-continental collaboration has gone pretty smoothly. Christian has applied what we’ve decided and learned to the creation of a starter plugin for future projects. It is an awesome tool that will be very useful for future projects for this group.

Speaking of future projects, what’s next? Hello-emoji was our learning project, but it’s time to make a “real” plugin. We have a lot of cool ideas on this blog and I think its time to tackle one. Of course, the question is which one? Also do we want to stick to making cool free plugins as a learning experience and a way to build our own portfolios or do we want to start thinking about things we can make that can be monetized?

I’d love to know what people think about these questions as its something to discuss before anyone makes a proposal about what we do next. Comment away! I’m looking forward to tackling whatever comes next.
