Thanks everyone <3

That's not their correct handle apparently, if you wanted them to be aware/subscribe them here.

Team is slowly proceeding and we'll hear from them when they need a bit more help in socializing anything.
I believe with the current contractors' hiring and my temp support for Commons, this is pretty much sorted.

I'm already happy with that, but glad this is sparking more convos.

(But to make sure I understand your edits: is adding code as per https://www.mediawiki.org/w/index.php?title=Snippets%2FDirect_imagelinks_to_Commons&type=revision&diff=5451422&oldid=3976429 the edit you're suggesting?)
(Gentle reminder about our process at https://office.wikimedia.org/wiki/Community_Relations_Specialists#How_to_contact_us_and_get_support - while this task had a very good list in terms of deliverables, it was totally out of my team's radar, among other things. Thank you! )
I'm off for an offsite, will take a look when I can. Thank you.

If a step-by-step explanation can be added to https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Parsoid/Parser_Unification/Media_structure/FAQ , we can at some point launch a call to warn people/ask wikis to fix things.
AIUI then work is done here. (I'm off next week, FYI.)

FWIW: if anyone in the team feels like my announcement needs to be amended (they disagree with my voice, or whatever) - it's on a wiki, and I gave you the list of wikis I posted to above, so by all means, be bold.
OK, this is now like 95% done.
If you want to check if my posts have reply in the next days, head to https://guc.toolforge.org/?by=date&user=Elitre+%28WMF%29 .
(obviously, if my edit was the last at any of those wikis, no replies were posted.)
I'm posting on the top 25 Wikipedia village pumps, however, please do LMK if there are other projects I should include - I'll post there tomorrow, because I'm doing this manually (none of you appears online RN).
Done on 3 major, relevant mailing lists.
Thanks all! I think I'm ready to start distributing the message.
Please confirm you reviewed my "draft" page. For instance, I don't know how many of those languages you can really do if Szymon is not there (and I don't know if Sandister is attending ATM).
@KSiebert / @TheresNoTime
See https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Community_Wishlist_Survey/Updates/Talk_to_Us_2022-09-14 , and edit/tell me if anything needs to be changed in the next couple hours.
This won't be a survey because of technical reasons. Will put the questions on wiki so at least they can be translated.

We're checking if any Ambassadors have capacity to help here, otherwise we'll try to do a wider call for wikis that want to pilot. Is it on office wiki yet/any benefit from putting it there?

@ssastry , we'll reach out with ideas, sorry for the delay.
Aug 4 2022
If anything, this would be a child of that. This one is specifically about /my part/ in whatever kind of work needs to happen there. Then again, that page is in Comms' territory RN - they are the ones who will officially revamp WMF dept/team pages at some point.
Aug 1 2022
Sorry for the delay, all's approved.

I believe I /may/ have budget to get someone new to follow projects, but my understanding is that things are pretty up in the air yet...? Need to touch base ASAP with the relevant people.
While we will likely not have dedicated capacity, the team has documentation to do a lot by themselves. Standing-by for more info from them.

@CDanis Sorry to bother: do you need help posting to wikitech-l, or...?
Apr 4 2022
@CDanis see the above.
I hadn't anticipated you would just go and start comms on your own,
so now I'll ask, can you use this blurb (or another one) for the wikitech-l list as well?

Tagging @Quiddity so he can decide on the timeline here:
We have an almost ready to go Diff post, then we'd need a few lines for Tech News + wikitech-l, unless you have more recs.
If it's in TN, no point in also targeting technical VPs, right?
Also, how about using https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Newsletter:Tech_Showcase and/or https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Newsletter:Technical_Community_Newsletter for a change?
I think I will also want it on https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Main_Page .

Connected you with Comms, we'll catch up later.
Ciao @CDanis and @lmata.
My team believes that a mention in Tech News + in a few technical newsletters would be the best way to go.
However, we also agree that it may be nice to have a piece in the https://diff.wikimedia.org/ Diff blog about the change.
Would you be willing to consider the latter? If so, we can put you in touch with the right people.
Mar 17 2022
Thanks for filing, triaging
Mar 15 2022
Comms thanks us for the headsup, they are willing to review any contents if a need arises.
Mar 14 2022
Well, see https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T303605.
Please retitle to what the actual suggestion is, I almost got a heart attack.
Will meet with a Comms person later today.
