The Community Tech team is working on the top ten wishes on the 2015 community wishlist. Technical Collaboration is helping out with some of the others. We should assess at least ten feasible tasks, starting by looking at #11–20. The feasibility should be documented (both from a social and technical perspective), we should include brief descriptions of ways forward written or vetted by suitable developers and document strategy for finding volunteer developers for each tasks – where and how to proceed.
(This task is a Technical Collaboration team goal for Q4 (April–June) and will also be worked on by @Johan and @Aklapper, with input from the Community Tech team.)
Measurements of success
- Selection of 10 most voted suitable tasks.
- Technical and social feasibility assessment for each task.
- Recommendations for next steps vetted by developers.
- 10 are ongoing, and others are being discussed/researched
- Plan for recruiting volunteer developers for each task.
- Outreach within each task, and before/at/after hackathons, and on IRC, and direct contact with potentially interested parties onwiki or via email
