Aklapper moved this task from Incoming to Projects to create on the Project-Admins board.

Please see https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Phabricator/Creating_and_renaming_projects#Creating_new_projects for required information (description, project type, who is "we").

T154549 probably better describes my concerns and the questions I'd love to see answered. :)

Well, setting to stalled again - see T154549. "Project for the Meta-Wiki community." does not tell me who plans to use this project how. :-/

who plans to use this project how. :-/

I guess whoever maintains Meta? I'm not sure who that would be (which is my problem).

I am a full time and long-term Meta-Wiki user and I don't see the use case for this project to be honest. Please see T167983: Create #MetaWiki-Gadgets for my concerns. I feel the same would apply here. I also don't see why a Phabricator Project would be of any use here. Regards.

@dbarratt: Alright, but I don't see why the folks maintaining Meta would automatically take care about tasks in some Phab project if other people not maintaining Meta created some Phab project for them? :P
Elitre summarized that well in T167983#3515844. Hence my question "who plans to use this project how"...

Valid.

What should be done with tickets like T173145: Global users should be Wikibase items on Meta ? Is it ok that it's just in the ether?

Reading the discussions [it looks like being on the verge of declined and] it could always be Wikimedia-General-or-Unknown as a fallback.
