This is the logical continuation of T101151: Evaluate which projects showcased at the Wikimedia Hackathon should be supported further.
The candidates are listed in T102034: Wikimania 2015 Hackathon Showcase. We need to make a selection, and for that we need to define the criteria to select them.
Features of a certain size
We are including projects that pursue new features and that imply a significant amount of work. Bugfixes and small tasks have been excluded.
Powered by volunteering
The main purpose of this selection is to highlight projects where volunteers are either drivers or essential co-pilots. Projects driven entirely by WMF teams are excluded, since these teams have the means to push these projects through their team goals. Projects driven by WMF developers in their volunteer capacity (i.e. in areas different then their usual work) are included.
Projects without community consensus have been excluded, since those discussions would need to happen first.
