xSavitar triaged this task as Medium priority.Mar 30 2018, 5:59 PM

Hello @D3r1ck01 ,

While reading the WMF Annual Plan review published on meta, some ideas came to my mind regarding more ways for our volunteers to contribute. As I will probably not attend this time, I am sharing these ideas now and hope they could be discussed during the meeting.

  • The WMF review mentions, in its Program 4 - Goal 1, focusing on three traditionally underserved communities, among which are tool and bot developers; API and data consumers. Bots and tools interacting with Mediawiki API can be a domain to cover along with Mediawiki bugs.
  • Also in Program 9 - Goal 1, the review mentions to Use machine learning to build recommendation algorithms that can help editors identify what to edit, in order to close the content gaps on Wikipedia and other Wikimedia projects. Though this sounds more like a mid or long term project, I this it might fit somewhere in our areas to cover.

For now, our contributions are Mediawiki-centered, which is great. In parallel, others areas can also be covered, offering our volunteers various ways to contribute.

Hi @samuelguebo , I added that point for discussion. It's unfortunate you will not be able to make it this time.

rosalieper updated the task description. (Show Details)

@rosalieper, don't forget to assign the task to yourself next time. Thanks :)
