Create "Wikifunctions" umbrella project to cover tasks that aren't necessarily specific to software, e.g. organising hackathons, co-ordinating projects, etc.

Description

It's not a bug nor a feature, just a proposal with the hope it can help getting more feedback / bugs from the community by removing barriers to the creation of tickets.

It's been a while since the WIkiLambda project has been renamed to WikiFunction. I guess lots of people now know only the new name. Also it would probably help referring to this project using only the new name.

If it's not to hard to do this, of course.

Event Timeline

Having an additional project for Wikifunctions sounds reasonable, but it shouldn't replace the WikiLambda project. See also Wikidata vs. Wikibase and Wikidata Architecture Overview etc.

@Jdforrester-WMF OK, so from your message, I think I understood something: WikiBase and WikiLambda are the name of extensions, whereas WIkiData and WikiFunctions are the name of the Wiki sites run by the Wikimedia foundation. Am I right?

Originally I thought there has been a renaming of WikiLambda in favor of WIkiFunctions. If that's wrong, I agree with you, this ticket is not relevant. I can rename the ticket or close this one and create a new one according to fit with your remark above.

Yup, we (I) named it 'WikiLambda' knowing that almost certainly the community would pick a different, better name, but I wanted to capture the old name somewhere.

I'll just use this task for the new umbrella project.

Jdforrester-WMF renamed this task from Rename "WikiLambda" and "WikiLambda Front-End" Phabricator tags to reflect the new project name: WikiFunction to Create "Wikifunctions" umbrella project to cover tasks that aren't necessarily specific to software, e.g. organising hackathons, co-ordinating projects, etc..Tue, Nov 29, 7:56 PM
