Add governance model to mediawiki
Open, In Progress, HighPublic3 Estimated Story Points

Description

Updates:

  • 2023-02-02: Decision: Let’s timebox this to Feb 9, 2023, knowing that we will iterate going forward. Future changes should be specced in a new task.
  • 2023-01-31: Scope change: flowchart needs a redesign for clarity, and we will add explainer text to the flowchart section on the mediawiki page. Acceptance criteria updated.
  • 2023-01-30: First draft is ready for review/edits https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Design_Systems_Team/Design_System_Governance_Model

As a contributor to the Wikimedia Design System, I want to access a publicly-viewable copy of the governance model flowchart without needing Figma access.

Resources

Open questions:

  • Should we plan a training/Q&A session around the governance model? If so, should it be open to the public? Or WMF internal?

Design and documentation

Acceptance criteria:

  • The Governance model flowchart has been summarized and redesigned in Figma
  • A Notion page is created with the documentation to be updated in Mediawiki
    • What is the Design System governance model?
    • Guiding Principles
    • Flowchart steps explanation
  • The Governance model flowchart and documentation have been added to a page within https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Design_Systems_Team.

Hello @Volker_E @bmartinezcalvo @Sarai-WMDE @RHo - the governance model page is ready for design review: https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Design_Systems_Team/Design_System_Governance_Model
Feel free to update the page directly, or share your suggestions as phabricator comments.

Note that adding the governance model to the Codex demo site (T288710) is not in-scope here, but I'm thinking it should match what we have in mediawiki.

It looks good. I would update just 2 things:

  1. I'm summarizing and redesigning a bit the Governance model to easily represent each step
  2. Should we explain the flowchart steps by adding text in the Flowchart section?

Agree with @bmartinezcalvo - especially for point 2 about a text version of the flowchart steps, maybe this would also help with translation to other languages later on.

Moving this task to In Design so I can redesign the flowchart and write in Notion the text we want to add as explanation for the flowchart.
