Move Developer-Advocacy team page from meta to mediawiki.org; clean it up; document workboard planning workflow
Closed, ResolvedPublic0 Story Points

Description

  • Move page from meta to mediawiki.org at Developer_Advocacy_team; potentially import to keep history (@Quiddity knows?); have it redirect; bonus points for going to "What links here" on mw.org and not have re-redirects.
  • Redirect mw:Developer_Advocacy and meta:Developer_Advocacy to mw:Developer_Advocacy_team
  • Shorten and update our "planning" process
  • Cover how to contact the subteam. No mailing list etc; likely the talk page or by filing a task?
  • Document our Phab workboard columns. Proposal:
    • To Triage: Where news stuff ends up by default. Could be moved to a different columns by anyone if trivial. If not, to be brought up in meetings as a routine. Ignore the "Priority" value of a task in this column as it might be the Priority of another team.
    • Backlog: We've looked at this, could be assigned but rather to avoid because cookie licking. If more likely to work on that soon, give it a higher priority
    • Team radar: Stuff that is interested to us but we do not work on and do not drive these tasks. Hence we do not close these tasks but only remove our team project tag if at all.
    • Consider for next quarter: Tasks should be assigned
    • Quarterly: Covering the current quarter; tasks should be assigned

Potentially also move both https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Wikimedia_Cloud_Services_team and that "Developer Advocacy team" page under https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Wikimedia_Technical_Engagement , as pointed out by Birgit?

Moved page from meta to mediawiki.org without renaming the page itself, as Special:Import is both limited and confusing.

I think I screwed up by accidentally enabling "Include all templates". List of pages that got imported were:

So I now deleted again at least those that seem to have not existed before on mw.org:

Redirect mw:Developer_Advocacy to mw:Developer_Advocacy_team

TODO / NOT DONE: Renaming on mw.org to Developer_Advocacy_team or move again under Wikimedia_Technical_Engagement/* as that's all separate steps. Someone else is free to do so if they have strong opinions. Or file a separate task if they care.

Move page from meta to mediawiki.org at Developer_Advocacy_team; potentially import to keep history; have it redirect

Moved (thanks Quiddity!); and the three pages on meta now are redirects:

Also removed {{ptag}} which does not exist on mw.org and fixed the non-existing "WMF staff" template.

Shorten and update our "planning" process
