Wouldn't it be nice if all the WMF Engineering quarterly goals should have a related Phabricator task in order to allow subscribers, report progress, define projects involved, blocking tasks, etc?
Coincidentally, I just saw that https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/tag/epic/ reads
Epics are long-themed tasks with many subtasks.
This tag is also used for goals identified in WMF's quarterly planning process, e.g. https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Wikimedia_Engineering/2014-15_Goals
Removing Team Practices Group for now; a number of TPGers are subscribed and following the conversation closely. If you need something specific from the TPG, we suggest you consider using a template along the lines of the example requests here:
@Qgil just so you know, removing the TPG tag leaves this task without an associated project. Not sure if this should fall under the product development process stuff, should just be closed, or other - but you are probably better suited to make that call :)
