This is a meet-up for members, future members and friends of the MediaWiki Stakeholders' Group.
Markus explains what the MW Stakeholders Group is doing (he has slides, should be uploaded somewhere)
- Monitors development roadmap
- Application to AffCom
- Set up a developer exchange
- Development wishlist / roadmap
- Set up tasks on Phabricator
- Extension documentation on mw.o
Re-focus (Markus proposes)
We are probably diverting too much. If we would be lobbying for only one reason, what would it be?
Mark: Extension / Content bundle?
We are not discussing. How to start?
mediawiki-l could be the mailing to discuss
Mark: what if we start discussing the extension bundle the idea in mediawiki-l?
Legoktm: we would need to discuss first whether that is a good idea?
Csteipp: as a 3rd party user you don't get any communiation when there are changes of big impact coming.
Isarra: Is there a way to communicate these announcements?
Mukunda: a MediaWiki Planet?
Siebrand? a tag log in i.e. Wikipedia planet?
ACTION: Publish major release announcements on techblog (Greg G on point)
We gots a hashtag: #mwstakeholders
And on mediawiki-l [stakeholders]
Wikimedia Foundation support
Quim: If you need something, ask. If you don't say anything, we assume you are fine.
The group should know what Wikimedia can offer (grants, participation and travel sponsorship to events...)
Quim: What about the SemanticMediaWiki community?
Markus: we have SMW people in the group, but we don't need to be the single point of contact for 3rd parties.
