Added entry to developers/maintainers page. Please augment with more accurate description and list of maintainers.
At this juncture the Language-Team will move forward as the Code Stewards for this extension. Runa and I have briefly discussed and will be working to get this extension the support/funding for more active maintenance. In the meantime non-UBN issues that need support will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis. @MarcoAurelio of the open changesets, are there any in particular that are of higher priority?

We're looking to have Audiences->Contributors->Editing be the Code Stewards for this moving forward.

@faidon it looks like there's a plan in place to address the pending EOL, in short Marielle and Marko are working on a NodeJS based solution. Now it's more a question of timing. What happens in August in terms of our infrastructure? Are we able to keep it going for a little while longer or does it get turned off no matter what?

Updated to developers/maintainers page to reflect Code Stewardship being assigned to MediaWiki Platform team.

Survey has been sent out. The survey will closed on June 15th.
Although this is to be an ongoing effort, I've promoted/surfaced Technical Debt topic at the Barca Hackathon. As this is the last event for the 17/18 fiscal year, we'll call this task resolved/closed.

@danstillman thanks for the additional info regarding your developments. As timing is of the essence with this, please keep us apprised of any new developments.

Submitted review request to legal team. Added survey to Community Engagement Calendar.

FYI: the Etherpad also contains the copy for our invite email. Which probably also needs to be reviewed.

As CommTech are stewarding this extension through its sunset, they should probably be assigned to it.
Sunsetting planning is in progress. All related discussions/activity will be tracked in T128326 going forward.

Thanks for the additional information @jcrespo, it will help as we review this extension's stewardship/funding moving forward. @EBjune, any additional insight regarding Search Platform team's potential role will be appreciated. In the coming weeks we'll also be soliciting broader feedback on this extension from the community as well.
Thanks @Nikerabbit. That helps me better understand the current state of things.
@dmaza I'm in active discussions with the Platform team. It looks like they will be taking on the stewardship of AbuseFilter. We're in the process of defining what that will mean in-terms of task/review responsiveness. However, we do agree that the Platform team is the right home for it. More to come.

@jcrespo if you could add the remaining portions of the Rubric, that will help us once we start reviewing. Although sunsetting is one of the potential outcomes, we'd like to investigate the funding alternatives as well.
@MaxSem updated developers/maintainers page.
@Nikerabbit I'm trying to get a better sense of the stewardship status of LiquidThreads. The work that you were/are doing on this is from a volunteer perspective (Translatewiki.net) vs as WMF staff correct? From what I've gathered from the discussion thus far, LiquidThreads doesn't have active Stewards, Translatewiki.net or otherwise correct?
Proposal is for Platform Team to be the stewards for this extension due to knowledge and scope of team. Anti-Harassment Tools team is a potential candidate due their activity on the extension, but it is thought to be outside their scope. jrbranaa working with Platform team to see if they are willing to be this extension's steward.
CommTech are the recommended stewards for this. I'm working with CommTech to see if they are willing to take on stewardship.
FY18/19 Code Steward to be @brion . Adam working to address resourcing gaps. FY19/20 plans may change once Multimedia's grant obligations are complete.

@Aklapper, please add any use cases that might be of interest to you. I'll do the same.

Created and sent out invites. Also decided to call this a "retrospective" vs "post mortem" :-)

Sent off email to @daniel before the holidays with some observations and questions regarding the review queue process as it stands today and areas that we could improve it. I think the question is two-fold: What review should we do prior to deploying something into production for the first time vs what should we do on an ongoing basis when something is in production.

Would this by chance be an approach to storing other CI data longer terms as well (i.e., test results)?
Jan 4 2018
@Catrope, yes I think this is related.
Dec 26 2017
Reached out to Daniel for more info. Also reached out to Marko regarding the review process for services.

Yeah, that's a good point. One of the thoughts that I've been having is to recognize "stewardship" outside of the foundation and sister orgs. Meaning, anyone can agree to be a steward provided they are willing and capable of being a steward as defined (whatever that ends up looking like).

Got it. Thanks!
