The MDN community meeting takes place in the #mdn channel on at 10 AM PDT (18:00 UTC). See the meeting time in your time zone.

Due to a calendar snafu, this meeting was not announced in advance. Apologies to those who therefore missed it.

Note: Since the next scheduled meeting falls on December 5 during MoCo's Portland coincidental work week, that meeting will be skipped. The next actual meeting will be 2014-12-17.


  • Since lots of people lurk in #mdn, if you're actively attending the meeting please speak up and introduce yourself.
  • Attending:
    • jms (Janet)
    • klez
    • teoli (Jean-Yves)
    • fscholz (Florian)
    • Sphinx
    • ajp
    • sheppy
    • alispivak



  • Janet will give feedback to Ali on her blog post and work together to get it published. (Feedback given, need to publish)



  • (teoli) Over the last 10 days, two locales reached 100% of the UI translated: ja and pt-BR. So we reached 11 locales with 100% of the UI translated (4 at the beginning at the year, 7 in June). In March, I was hoping for 12 locales by the end of 2015.
  • (teoli) The WednesdayDoc/MercrediDoc are starting again. Next Wednesday simultaneously in Paris and London. We plan to set up a vidyo link between the two areas and we will share the link for remotees to attend. I plan to do it once a month.

Topics for Discussion

Are you facing a challenge with something related to MDN, or need help from others in the community? Please bring it up for discussion.

  • (teoli) Updating HTML5-related pages.
    • So we have noticed that with the release of HTML5 as a Recommendation we have a lot of pages with imperfect spec links and now outdated "experimental" banners. And a lot is really a lot. So I'm thinking about making a coordination spreadsheet so that we can have the list of these pages and then fix them. It isn't automatic, but not overly difficult. But beware we are talking about 300-500 pages to check. Some pages are very old (pre-HTML5) and are marked "Non-standard", some are just "Experimental". With the release of HTML5, MDN suddenly looks out-of-date, which is bad.
    • Can this be done via tagging? I first need to have the list of pages from the HTML spec, then we can tag them. I have an old script to extract the info from the spec, but I need to see if it still works.
  • (klez) So we have discussed about some long articles in the glossary during the learning area meeting. I identified two articles that could be repurposed ([ Element] and Hyperlink), but before moving things around in other areas I wanted to have a chat with who is responsible for the html zone (teoli raises hand). The second one is more of an essay on the <a> element


Anything else we need to discuss synchronously?

  • (sheppy) Note that the community has been doing a lot of stellar work lately. Thank you!
