Create table to track endorsements for externally funded research proposals
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Under the OA policy WMF can issue endorsements of research proposals aligned with our strategic goals and submitted for external funding (by the NSF, EC etc). These endorsements cannot be immediately published until the funding decision is made, in contrast to all other types of support covered by the policy which can be immediately announced.

This task is to create an internal space on Office wiki where such projects can be tracked until the final funding decision.

@DarTar, please review and mark this done if you think it looks OK.

One more thing that we might do is add this to a checklist somewhere. Do we have a checklist of things to do for support requests so that we don't forget to update lists like this one?

Thanks, @Halfak, I expanded the page with some short instructions and added a few more details to the table, I'll mark this as done for now. I really wish Phab had task templates that could be populated via something friendlier than URL parameters. @Qgil anything that comes to mind?

DarTar moved this task from In Progress to Done (current quarter) on the Research board.

nice, subscribed.

@Qgil, after reading T93499 again, it looks like what we need is way simpler: the ability to create template tasks, prepopulated with specific values (say tags, or default subscribers or default content in the description, like a checklist) and use them when creating new tasks. I know we discussed the URL parameter trick but it's not tremendously friendly, other ideas you can point us to? cc @ggellerman

The URL parameters trick is not friendly for the person who has to create the link once, but then for the rest is a matter of clicking a link offered in a project page here and/or in a wiki page elsewhere...

"create the link once", it's actually very likely these templates will be modified/edited multiple times by various people.

You can maintain the complex URL queries in a MediaWiki page, just like wikitext templates are kept. :)
