Policies and Publication Procedures

  • For the web site, we will introduce the following three labels minor / major / bug fixes based on the levels of the changes.
    • major changes: PRs (e.g., new page content or new web pages, blog posts) needs 1 week preview time of the WoT group (will be announced in the main call, with a resolution the following week)
      • Blog posts should also make a PR to the marketing repo and follow the instructions there for archival, etc.
      • Note that updates to the web content in the marketing repo is *immediately* copied to the live web site, so reviews should happen on the PR before it is merged.
      • Ideally reviews for blog posts can follow the same process, doing reviews and editing on a PR, and the draft/published directories in the repo can be used just for final cleanup.
    • minor changes: PRs (e.g., small extension) will be also announced latest one day before the main call, followed by a resolution in the main call
    • bug fixes: PRs (e.g., typos, links update) that are "error corrections" of existing content can be merged directly at the discretion of the editors
  • Social Media: Please refer to WG/IG policy at https://github.com/w3c/wot/blob/main/policies/social-media.md
