@yuvipanda and I met, see http://etherpad.wikimedia.org/p/tool_labs-doc . We discussed other pages and made a bunch of immediate cleanups , but we didn't get all the way through Help:Tool_Labs so we didn't completely figure out its restructure.

Some principles:

  • one quick start
  • move most sections to subpages
  • avoid repeating info that's on other wikitech Help pages; on the other hand Help:Tool_Labs can provide help specific to Tool Labs rather than adapted Wikimedia Labs help.
  • remove Toolsbeta, only mention on some admin page
  • link to wikitech's Help:Terminology

The cleanup to the http://tools.wmflabs.org/ home page should probably be a separate task (subtask?) since it uses a different system.

It is time to promote Wikimedia-Hackathon-2015 activities in the program (training sessions and meetings) and main wiki page (hacking projects and other ongoing activities). Follow the instructions, please. If you have questions, about this message, ask here.

Did someone work on this project during Wikimedia-Hackathon-2015? If so, please update the task with the results. If not, please remove the label.
