What is the problem?
Collaboration Team has been assigned to work on maps, in part in response to the winning Community Wishlist item this year about maps. This project requires careful communication to 1) get good feedback from the Maps community about their priorities, 2) ensure that community expectations for this limited engagement are realistic, and 3) manage the many planned feature releases.
How does success of this task look like? How do we know when we are done?
This is a limited engagement which is meant to be finished by the end of Q4 (June), insofar as that deadline is consistent with the goals stated below.
Is there any goal, program, project, team related with this request? Please provide links and use the corresponding Phabricator tags when available.
The goals of the project are as follows:
- Serve the maps community by completing the main two Wishlist items and as many of the remaining items as are 1) possible in the time frame and 2) valid.
- After appropriate consultations, launch mapframe on en.wiki.
- Fix any issues that need fixing so that maps can continue next year with an expanded audience but minimal staffing.
What is your expected timeline from start to end? Is there a hard deadline?
As above, the end of Q4.
