Wikispore at Wikimania Hackathon 2019
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Refine proposal and establish technical requirements for Wikispore, a potential new project to develop test wikis to fill out the rest of the reference shelf with new genres of free knowledge.

It would differ from Wikimedia Incubator in that it would support experimentation and diversification in new formats, as well as new languages. It is expected to function similarly to the Community Wishlist Survey in that 10 test wikis would be selected each year for interim development, and, after a maturation phase, perhaps one or two a year might "graduate" to full sister project.
