Create "Lyon hackathon 2015 ideas" / "Wikimedia-Hackathon-2015" project on phabricator
Closed, ResolvedPublic


As a result of T86196 (developer summit session) I need a project to store the outcome of this session. Once it is created I can manage things like project description etc. The purpose is to provide a backlog for ideas for things to build during the next hackathon.

PS. Also how can I personally get rights to create new projects on Phabricator?

Hmm, #European-Hackathon-2015-Ideas (though that feels already a bit long)? Description also very welcome, see

Hey Everyone,

I'm Alex from the WMFr, in charge of financing this Hackathon. Very nice to see this project here. The Etherpad New_Ideas_for_Editing is very helpful for us, it helps when we need to describe to sponsors what will be done during this event.

We just had a Skype meeting here in France with everyone interested in the project. Is this Phabricator a good place for a quick update to all of you or should I wait for a Wikimedia-Hackathon-2015 as Qgil suggested?

Have a great day!

Hi @AlexCella, Phabricator is good to organize goals and tasks that can be completed. We are looking forward to create this project (today?) and allow you to start documenting your work here.

What I do in similar situations is to have an epic task i.e. "Organize the Wikimedia Hackathon 2015" blocked by the main tasks (i.e. organize the schedule, approve travel sponsorship, get the funding required...) and post quick generic updates on the main task, or more specific updates wherever corresponds.

Once the project and the basic structure of tasks has been created, it is useful to send an email to wikitech-l and other relevant mailing lists and channels, encouraging people to join the project and subscribe to tasks.

Wikimedia-Hackathon-2015 would be great. I can always create a new one if it gets too noisy! Thanks!
