Here is the email I'm planning to send to all the mentors whose project is listed on the New Developers page:
The Developer Advocacy team is planning to refresh the New Developers page on MediaWiki.org!
I'm reaching out to all mentors to learn if their project still meets the criteria of a featured project: https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/New_Developers/Featured_Projects#How_to_become_a_featured_project_recommended_to_new_developers.
I've two questions:
- Do you have a sense of whether the addition of your project to New Developers page helped in drawing more contributors? Do you have any stories to share?
- Would you like to keep your project in the list of featured projects on the New Developers page? Does it still meet the featured project criteria?
After gathering responses from mentors/maintainers, it would be nice to recruit more projects anyways for the New Developers page (via Wikitech-I).
