Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

We are gathering an international and diverse group of staff from cultural institutions (GLAMs) who are willing to provide us long-term feedback on the development of Structured Data on Commons.

  • Recruit 10-20 (?) individuals for this focus group
  • Provide some basic infrastructure to contact them regularly (mailing list? wiki page?)
  • Provide infrastructure (wiki pages) to describe and document the work we do with them

Upping priority, as this is something I'm going to work on more in the upcoming weeks.

A few good people have confirmed they want to be part of this group. We'll recruit more members in the upcoming months to make sure this group becomes broad and diverse.

A reminder that this is still on November's board, so it could either be pushed further or closed based on what's left to do. Thank you!

(I'm gonna remove what I assume are now legacy tags from a bunch of tasks. You can readd/reassign if necessary.)

There is now a basic international group of GLAM staff members who have agreed to give feedback to the project. I send them e-mails when a new relevant community consultation is launched.

The group can benefit from more diversity (more people not from Europe and North America, basically), and I will still try to find and involve more participants to make this better.

There is now also a temporary mailing list for GLAM staff interested in joining this group. It will be used for occasional news, announcements, and requests for feedback. You can join here: https://groups.google.com/a/wikimedia.org/forum/#!forum/glam-structured-commons

We do have a nice and active group of people who provide feedback. It can always grow, people are welcome to join anytime. But the baseline is there. Considering this task closed!
