Hold a succesful pilot of Discourse on https://discourse.wmflabs.org/ as an alternative to wikimedia-l mailinglist.
This is a tracking ticket. Please create a ticket for anything that blocks discourse.wmflabs.org to be a succesful pilot as an alternative to wikimedia-l mailinglist.
- As a Wikimedian I want to share news about what is going on in the movement with involved other Wikimedians so that those Wikimedians stay informed about what is going on
- As a Wikimedian I want to raise an issue to be discussed with fellow Wikimedians so that fellow Wikimedians can share their opinion
- As a Wikimedian I want to announce changes in the composition of boards of chapters and commission so that outgoing officers can be thanked and incoming officers can be welcomed
Wish list and other requirements for a discourse platform for Wikimedians
- # Free and open software
- # Free license
- # Multi lingual interface
- # Primary discussion language English - optionally: multilingual discussion
- # Single Sign On (SSO): someone with a Wikimedia account should be able to sign in to Discourse with that account (just like Phabricator); or "OAuth integration with MediaWiki credentials."
- # Email in topics
- # Archive / export / download all posts by all users (On Discourse users can export to .csv and download all of their own posts and replies)
