Hi, DougM: Oh, I see -- not-a-bug:

Yes, the main room we want people to occupy is #webplatform. The meetings
occur on a separate channel, which is listed on the meeting page (now,
thanks to you). In general, we don't want to confuse the two channels:
#webplatform is for getting help and sharing information on the content;
#webplatform-site is for those who are working on the site and experience.

Given that division, we want to first steps in the Ed_Guide to point to
#webplatform, whereas each meeting designates their own channel, usually

Thanks for the bug report pointer, fro.  That covers it in detail.  Nothing
to add.

Julee -- In the "communicating with the team" content you quoted:

The freenode link (2nd line, in bold) points to the #webplatform channel,
but the Friday calls use #webplatform-site.

Since I don't understand the difference between the two channels, it's hard
for me to fix directly, but I assume that we would explicitly say something
like the main channel is monitored 7x24, and the site channel is only
monitored during meetings (and during those new community drop-in hours to
be defined?).

Do we have a link to archived meeting chats?
