We've occasionally added specific headlines for things when the ones we have don't fit, but shouldn't make a habit out of it. Normally, the existing ones ("this has happened", "this happens now", "this will happen in the future", "meetings" and "problems") cover pretty much what we want to say.

Written a draft. Plan to send to mailing lists on Tuesday.
OK. Do you need the extra feedback you hope you'd get from Tech News? Otherwise I'd probably hold that another week, until it's ready for the content wikis where the Tech News readers edit. (:
@Niharika OK, thanks. Roughly when would you assume we're ready for content wikis?
Some relevant info here:
Some questions are partially covered by the CE Insights survey. See this analysis:
All tickets closed with needs-more-info as resolution. Will revisit.
Couldn't find a page that was suitable for thinking about processes as well as style, so created a draft here:
Let's be realistic: I want to do this but will never find the time.
This has been difficult to pursue, partly because of occasionally rotating editorship.
@BBlack Sorry for late reply, been OoO.

I'm fairly certain Swedish Wikipedia would definitely want that, yes.
OK, I'll add it to Tech News (distributed on Monday).

I think we're good. (:

wikitech-l rather than wikitech-ambassadors-l, I'd say, they're more of the target audience for mediawiki.org and Wikitech. Possibly a mention in Tech News, to tell people there's a place we're testing this, and because people like to be able to keep tabs on future development of something before it hits their wiki.
@Elitre: I won't be at Wikimania, I'm afraid.

This has been waiting for Community Tech to take the next step for the last months; I've done what can be done from my side.

Anyone interested in this topic could take a look at this ticket.
Personal update on this:
OK, that makes sense. (:
We're basically ready to summarise the discussion and get back to those interested in this, but this is taking longer time than planned so that we can include the backend decision, so we have proper information on how we'll be going forward.
We're no longer sure we're simply moving to Electron, see T166188.

@Nirmos No, I think Swedish Wikipedia is about the right size – it's not e.g. German, English or French Wikipedia, but big enough to actually get some feedback. (:

When (and where? All wikis?) will this happen? I see it's been marked for deployment this week, but I don't see anything on the wikis where wmf.7 has been deployed.

@dr0ptp4kt Would be a potential way to do it, of course. If so, just to make sure we're on the same page, do we do something like this?
If part of the point here is to start having conversations with template editors who edit templates that will be used by the non-technical editor community, I'm not sure mediawiki.org or Wikitech will take us in that direction. That's not an argument for not doing them as soon as possible if there's reason to, but they're not exactly the same kind of environment as the typical Wikimedia wiki.
In practice, this has come to mean "support the team in writing the next report for the community".
