Tech Talk: MediaWiki for third parties
Open, HighPublic


From T153063

For March, the next question in the list would be

What is the priority of making MediaWiki useful for 3rd parties, relative to other WMF goals and investments?

For a proposed June Tech Talk pertaining to 3rd parties I identified these unanswered questions from T153063: Wikimedia Foundation Technology and Product Q&A

  1. What is the priority of making MediaWiki useful for 3rd parties, relative to other WMF goals and investments?
  1. How can volunteers bring ideas and influence the WMF annual plans and quarterly goals? (currently when plans are published it's too late)
  1. What vision do you see for MediaWiki and volunteer developers 5 years from now?

Which could be packaged with other questions relative to MediaWiki for third parties.

@CKoerner_WMF, can you add 2-3 of these questions in the description, taking them from the prioritized list of questions, please?

Sorry, I prioritized other work over this and it fell off my radar. Thank you for the ping. :)
