Is there more information about this task? Like a definition of the CL toolkit, the problems it aims to solve, and the current status of this work.

Current thinking: this looks more like an instruction manual than a toolkit.

We need to refocus this task. I think the work done by @Rdicerb is useful, but currently this task lacks a bit its north and its short term use. Here is one idea.

Currently we are working on the Technical Collaboration Guideline, which consists on a set of recommendations.

What if... we would compile a Technical Collaboration Toolkit, where we would document instructions and best practices to actually run the processes recommended in the Guideline?

Real examples:

  • Developer team has a new feature ready to be deployed in projects, but they need help from local volunteers to translate X to their language. How to reach out to volunteers?
  • Developer team has a feature in Beta and they are thinking of graduating it. How to organize a simple consultation to identify potential blockers by the communities?

After a conversation with @Keegan, we agree that the TCG would improve with links to howtos and examples, but that doesn't need to become a formal collection of docs as I was initially proposing.

I am lowering the priority of this task while we clarify the blockers.

Looking at https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/User:Rdicerb_%28WMF%29/sandbox/CL_Toolkit#Definition_of_CL_Toolkit:, the CL toolkit is defined as

The different tools/functions used by Community Liaisons to engage communities in product development. These can be a type of communication or engagement, whether. Ideally each toolkit specifies individual steps in a workflow.

Nowadays this is the role of the Technical-Collaboration-Guidance and a lot of work is going on there. I am reflecting this evolution in our plans by merging this task to T138339: Create a systematic approach to community engagement for product development teams.
