Because the team is prioritizing "newcomer tasks" (T227728), these additional modules would not be a priority until later in the year (if at all).

Because the team is prioritizing "newcomer tasks" (T227728), these additional modules would not be a priority until later in the year (if at all).

By any chance, can they be developed as side projects by volunteers, or would it be too complicated because of metrics (evaluation of impact) or community engagement (documentation and community appropriation)? If the latter, they should be declined, unless if we document the condition to have them created somewhere.

@MMiller_WMF: Hi, could you answer Trizek's last question, please? Thanks :)

@Trizek-WMF @Aklapper -- it would be great if volunteers want to work on any of these ideas, and the Growth team would try to support it!
