Qgil added a comment to T215053: Write an extension for displaying Discourse feeds on mediawiki.org.

All these options you are discussing would display RSS feeds but they would not change the actual content of a wiki page, and therefore they wouldn't create any watchlist changes, right? If so, this is not a problem problem. Displaying RSS feeds on wiki pages without touching the wiki page content is useful for several use cases.

I am nobody to give an opinion about OAuth 2.0 vs 1.0. I just know that login to Discourse with a Wikimedia account would be useful in so many ways in the mid term. I also see Discourse supporting officially "social logins" for Facebook, GitHub, Google, Twitter and Yahoo + Single Sign-On with WordPress. In their forum there are reports of users implementing their logins for many other web services.

Qgil added a comment to T199086: Close the Technical Collaboration's Community Health group.

Ah, good point! Somehow I thought that page had been taken care by... dunno. :) I have added the {{Historical}} template for now, although I personally am a friend of deeper cleaning.

Qgil added a comment to T199084: Archive or update Technical Collaboration pages in Meta and Office Wiki.

For the record, I have set the {{Historical}} template at https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Community_Relations/Community_health. Thank you @Aklapper for your reminder at T199086: Close the Technical Collaboration's Community Health group.

Qgil updated subscribers of T212654: Consider deprecating Project:Support_desk in favor of Wikimedia Developer Support.

@CCicalese_WMF was interested in increasing the scope of Wikimedia Developer Support to sysadmins (and we started discussing somewhere that the name of the site could rely on Technical Support and not just Developer Support). From a collaboration point of view, it makes sense to increase the scope to make it equivalent to the scope of mediawiki.org, just like the Support Desk today. The more the merrier, and Discourse offers fine grained notification settings for everyone's preferences.

Qgil closed T184592: Setup reply via email in discourse-mediawiki.wmflabs.org as Resolved.

Back in May (at the Hackathon, actually), I enabled replies via email using a pure @gmail.com account. This might be unacceptable for a production setup, but it is good enough to test and learn in our pilot.

Qgil placed T155678: Provide an easy to use support system for contributors to ask technical questions up for grabs.

https://discourse-mediawiki.wmflabs.org was created as a pilot a year ago. Meanwhile, the Developer Relations team evolved int Developer-Advocacy , and I just resolved a task that I was cookielicking / bottlenecking: T194951.
