All the users with shell access which are not WMF staff have a a contact address for quite a while now (half a year maybe?). Not necessarily an expiry address, since NDAs for volunteers are not time-limited per se.

DarTar updated subscribers of T174733: Conduct structured interviews with team leads in Tech involved in building platforms with an externally-facing audience.

Scope as discussed with @VColeman:

  • limit this exercise to a subset of teams within Tech developing platforms or data with an external audience: determine if teams owning primarily internally-focused platforms should be included, e.g. fr tech may not be useful since they serve primarily a team in Audiences
  • exclude external stakeholder interviews for now
