WordPress Meetup Group Task List
The following are example group tasks for a WordPress Meetup
group.

The group should have access to one or more computers.
Groups can consist of an individual or up to 6 people. The group
can divide up the work and consult with each other on the best
choices and decisions.

Recommend groups divide up projects alphabetically, or deal
with similar tasks in reverse alphaetical order so they aren't all
working on the same documents.

If a task cannot be accomplished, a member should put it on a to
list on the WP Docs Team Task List.
