Community Relations support for the depicts statement SDC release
Open, NormalPublic


What is the problem?

Depicts statements will soon be available on every file page on Commons as well as the UploadWizard (and available via API). We need to tell the community about it.

How can we help you?

Depicts needs a release plan along with communication of what/when/how depicts tags are to be released and used.

What does success look like?

The community is not taken by surprise, communications reach most users.

What is your deadline?

Late January/Early Februrary

This release is taking place in two parts, so community testing periods are a week long instead of two weeks to accommodate.

  • Write "How-to use" on
  • Write initial test criteria - very simply depicts tagging
  • Write community release announcement

Repeat the testing steps for depicts with qualifiers.

We'll need to write a glossary before we get to other statements.
