Event Timeline

Excited to see this happening! It might be nice to also post some advance notice (though it's not much at this point) on the talk pages so it's less likely to catch folks by surprise and to help advertise. I don't know if there's any one perfect place but https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Research_talk:Index seems like a reasonable place. If no objections, I'm willing to do this given that I brought it up (but I'm also happy to have @nshahquinn-wmf or others take the lead on this).

Yes, good idea! I've announced it on the wiki-research-l mailing list and on several channels on the Wikimedia Foundation Slack. I'll go ahead and do that page and the analytics mailing list as well. If you can think of anywhere else, please feel free to share it there too!
