Trello Board Review
We reviewed the progress of the Needed Articles Spreadsheet which the entire Editorial Subcommittee is working on.
The intent of the spreadsheet is to capture all the article ideas we've had in the course of creating our new Category Hierarchy, and to come up with any new ideas in looking at each category. The spreadsheet is organized with all the categories in column A, and columns B-C-D and beyond can be used for ideas for articles or article groups. Anybody is free to add to this spreadsheet.
Once we have enough ideas, we will prioritize this and update the Needed Articles page on the wiki. This will also be the source of work assignments for editorial team members and interns to improve the wiki long-term.
We reviewed & discussed the other items on our Trello board.
Jim LeFavre agreed to update our Mars article.
Action Items for Next Week
- James to update flyer based on our discussion.
- James to update the wiki with program info.
- Everybody to continue adding to Needed Articles Spreadsheet.
- Jim LeFavre to work on Mars article.
