Update metawiki description of Cloud Services
Closed, ResolvedPublic


The '"Technical and development" projects' section of currently includes a link to with the link text "Wikimedia Tool Labs", the Labs logo, and the description "Server environment for supporting development and operations engineering".

This is wrong on several levels:

  • The logo is the Wikimedia Cloud Services (nee Labs) logo, the Tool Labs logo
  • The description is about Labs, not Tool Labs
  • The wikitech target page is probably the worst landing page for anyone to learn about the Toolforge (nee Tool Labs) project

Suggested fix:

Event Timeline

If it is modifying the main page or one of its protected pages I can do it or we can grant you temporary adminship to do it yourself, or if you have a staff account with the appropriate rights I think it'd not be an abuse to do it from that account either (but you should check with your manager that).

@MarcoAurelio what do you think about my proposed change to the description there? I think the current wording is less inviting than it could be.

@bd808 It currently reads on the Main Page: Wikimedia Cloud Services. Hosting environment for community managed software projects, tools, and data analysis. If there's another wording you'd like to use, please let me know. Regards.
