One feed to pull all the announcements published by the Foundation
Open, LowPublic0 Estimated Story Points

Description

Wikimedia Space needs to produce one RSS feed containing all the announcements published by the Wikimedia Foundation targeting our movement.

From there, anyone could use the feed to syndicate/re-publish these announcements in their own websites, from MediaWiki-based pages to blogs, social media...

This feature should be tested at least in one location chosen by the English Wikipedia community.

We are already working on providing this feed of announcements by the Foundation. This is the role that will be in charge of making this process work.

Could we designate a page on EnWiki to receive these announcements? I suspect we'd want to fully protect the page, so it's reserved solely for this announcement stream.

Qgil updated the task description. (Show Details)

Yes, as the description says, this feature should be tested at least in one location chosen by the English Wikipedia community.

It is still unclear how exactly the wiki pages pulling this feed would be updated. I have asked at T215053: Write an extension for displaying Discourse feeds on mediawiki.org.
