@srodlund sorry I have a hard time noticing Phabricator pings. I can have you a draft on Wednesday. Is that good enough? If you need a timely response might be best to ping me on Slack, IRC, GChat, or email... ;)

Week 3/30 update: No updates. @leila will reach out to Diego to determine his status and capacity to continue working with us.
I provided updated documentation about the new showcase focus and procedures on the OfficeWiki page, and pinged @DED for sign-off/additions. I believe that once he signals that the documentation is complete and correct, we can call this task done.

@JFishback_WMF I know that @APalmer_WMF was part of the meeting where you and I discussed this privacy review, and Aeryn and Stephen have also been provided the Research brief for review. See email thread "Meet to discuss privacy requirements for social media traffic reports research project?" from 1/7/2020. I don't know if Aeryn or anyone else in Legal has taken any action since then. I don't believe that anyone from Analytics has performed any review on this yet.
@leila thanks! Subtasks added (see privacy review one T246041). I'm coordinating with @JFishback_WMF directly via the tracking task on Asana and I don't think we need to escalate at this time. He's been down with flu but is back at work now and aims to have an update by the end of the week.
@RhinosF1 I think so? I mean, I don't use the same keys in Labs and production, and I have access to both servers. So I'm going to assume everything is fine ;) - J

16 interviews with former survey participants have been conducted. Researchers at Drexel are working to analyze the interview data. Our goal is to publish findings from the surveys and interviews at the 2020 CSCW conference (mid-April submission deadline).
Work is completed and being used to inform the design of a data dump schema (see related GSOC project).
This project is complete, or at least this phase of it. Any additional work will be linked from the project page: https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Research:Content_gaps_on_Wikipedia
I'm just subscribing because this sounds super interesting ;)
