Create GLAM and GLAM-Tech projects
Closed, ResolvedPublic


The GLAM-Wiki community is constantly creating needs for different kinds of technical infrastructure. At the moment these technical asks are spread all over phabricator, with very little connective tissue or ready strategies fo documentations. Developing a GLAM-Tech project would allow me as GLAM-Wiki strategist and other GLAM coordinators across the movement to keep track of these changes.

Thanks @Danny_B I moved that recommendation to , that way newbies can do it easily

Realized I didn't ping @Luke081515 & @Aklapper

@Sadads No need to, they are subscribed, thus getting notifications. As well as other Project-Admins can see it on the board.

(Note that the projects will be editable for everybody and editing will intentionally not be restricted to specific users.)
