Create a project and a Space for the Basque Wikimedians User Group
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Hello,
In the Basque Wikimedians User Group we are handling a quite big amount of projects and we are thinking on using a system like phabricator to track and handle them. Is it possible to create a new project?

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

Sure! See https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Phabricator/Creating_and_renaming_projects#Creating_new_projects for required information.
Name could be something like #Wikimedia-Basque-User-Group I guess, the description could explain how you plan to use the project (can be one sentence, mostly helpful to avoid "outsiders" adding your project tag incorrectly to a task) and link to https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Basque_Wikimedians_User_Group

Just tell us when you've "decided" whether to use Wikimedia Phabricator so we can create that project for you. :)

Aklapper renamed this task from How can I create a project? to Create a project for the Basque Wikimedians User Group.Sep 7 2017, 5:09 PM

The name could be
Wikimedia-User-Group-Basque, the basque name of the group.
The description in English:
A place for members of the Basque Wikimedians User Group to manage the different project the User Group is organizing. Some of the tasks may be private.

Editable By: This project only

We would need an Space inside to discuss not public (yet) projects. Only accesibble by the group members.

We have decided it this morning in a meeting, after viewing that we have many new tasks and need a system to admin them.

By default we do not do that, as it probably does not mean what you think it means. :) If you have good reasons for such a restriction, please elaborate.

Noted. So you could have a [public] project, and also a Space for those tasks in your public project which should not be public. Members of the Space can see all (private and public) tasks on the workboard of the project, and others could only see your public tasks on the workboard.

Aklapper changed the task status from Stalled to Open.

Ok. Didn't understand clearly the difference. The group should be only for the people that are member of the User Group. I thought that this was the way.

Hmm, I think I'd even go for #Wikimedia-User-Group-Basque as the name here, to have a common prefix (as I see there are also other requests to create projects for user groups and to better differentiate from chapters also having their Phabricator projects). (Note that projects can have additional names, this would just be the 'primary' one.)

Aklapper triaged this task as Medium priority.
Aklapper added a project: Phabricator.

Who would be the "lead" (Phab user account) to add/edit/remove Phab users who are allowed to access non-public tasks?

For a while I will be the lead programs manager, so add my user.

Alright:

  • Regarding the project and its workboard:
    • Public project Wikimedia-User-Group-Basque created.
    • I set #Euskal-Wikilarien-Kultur-Elkartea as an additional hashtag, so you can also type that in various places.
  • Regarding the Space (a Space is not a project and hence there is no workboard):
  • For convenience, created Herald Rule H256: If Space is set to S15, add project: Wikimedia-User-Group-Basque. So tasks should end up on the workboard even if you forgot to add the project and only set the Space.
  • Documented the creation of S15 on https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Phabricator/Spaces
  • Please ask if things are unclear. Happy to help!

@Theklan: I've recently been looking at Wikimedia-User-Group-Basque tasks (which seems less active nowadays?) and I have two questions:

  • Some tasks have their View Policy set to "All Users" instead of "Public". Is there a reason for this? Usually setting "All Users" is not useful in our Phab instance, as anyone can still access these tasks after creating a Phab account.

Might have been answered in T178676#6613323 as an incorrect approach to restrict visibility?
