    • Markdown variant?
      • Some minor extensions, there is a help sheet in the editor
      • You can just write HTML
    • Anyone wanted to make a post on the WebKit blog but hasn't?
      • Yes, one person.
      • This is available to any WebKit contributors.
    • WordPress in SVN questions
      • would like to not keep core checked in
      • do want to keep static page content checked in and reviewable changes
    • Who have accounts?
      • Most Apple folks
      • Ping us and we can get you access.
      • New WordPress login schemes, not the macosforge/old site
      • Potential to tie accounts to SVN
    • OpenGraph support?
      • Haven't considered that.
      • We can hook plugins in to generate whatever data we need.
    • Should we add social share buttons?
      • Lots of people said they dislike them.
    • When will it be posted?
      • Would like to try launching next week.
      • Would be difficult to stage it.
  • Comments
    • Reporting Bugs page
      • would also be nice for other platforms => bugs.webkit.org
      • make less Mac / Apple / Safari specific
      • "Check your WebKit Version" - provide a way for each port
      • future idea to create bugs through this site to reduce bugzilla overhead for developers
        • response: we should try that after improving bugzilla itself
    • Nightly Page
      • add other port links to the nightly (Igalia folks say they are close)
      • missing "what is a nightly? who should download it?" - needs a bit more explanation
      • other browsers have similiar (Firefox, Chrome)
    • Static Pages
      • needs to be filled out.
      • want to pull out good data from the wiki
      • have a better home for that content on the blog
    • Testing Pages
      • What is this page about? Contributing? Or for developers?
      • Can be multiple audiences. The homepage does this.
      • Like that structure, 2 audiences (Web Developers, Contributors)
      • Web Developers => Test new WebKit Features
      • Contributors => Testing contributions, how contributors test
      • Used to have a page / document about "How to create good bugs"
      • We have a good system for contributing patches, but not for other contributions (tests, bot maintenance)
    • Video Content for Linux Ports
      • mp4 content on the old blog
      • that is difficult for linux ports
      • would be great to have less encumbered format, preferred WebM; doesn't have to be though
      • even if it has to be "pass the video off to us so we can transcode; that would be fine"
      • is there some simple way someone can convert all our videos right now?
        • upload videos to youtube / vimeo?
    • Discussion / Post Feedback
      • link to Twitter handles at the end
      • seems weird, comments?
