Scott_WUaS added a comment to E226: ArchCom RFC Meeting W27: per-programming-language listings for our tools (2016-07-06, #wikimedia-office).

Wikidata/Wikibase-centrism re programming languages for supporting newcomers makes much sense :) As a possible newcomer developer (and having donated WUaS to Wikidata last autumn), I'd be interested in a page that even would precede https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Programming_languages. In developing in both Wikidata/Wikibase (and MediaWiki), I'd be interested programming language-wise possibly in finding information from here - www.whatcanidoforwikimedia.org and https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/ - as ways in.

"To add to Quiddity's observation from yesterday: "So, let's focus tomorrow's conversation on helping newcomers identify "What can I work on in language foo"" I'd explore how and in what programming languages ... and especially in Wikidata/Wikibase" re today's Wikimedia-Office hour at 14:30

Scott_WUaS added a comment to T125865: Assign RFCs to ArchCom shepherds.

Thanks for this important discussion. I'm curious how these ArchCom roles might change and develop say 5 years out, and what already exists in terms of parallel roles at other IT organizations (e.g. Google). For example, might these roles 5 or 10 years ahead become project manager and associate project manager (who then might become a project manager a year later), while retaining their facilitator / shepherd relationship and foci, and in terms of who reports to whom organizationally especially? Thanks.

Scott_WUaS added a comment to T124255: Rename #MediaWiki-RFCs to #ArchCom-RFC.

MZMcBride, RobLa and All, Why not specifically make these ArchCom discussions "open," in the manner of friends, and for scaling purposes, with "minuting" of the Architecture Committee meetings' decisions occurring here in Phabricator, with Rob as current ArchCom facilitator, and with shepherds (to move the decision process along in a timely way, emerging for this and related groups)? I think this "process" will scale well. (And discussions will of course occur in private, but it's the open ArchCom meetings - are these on Wednesdays at 2pm PT - where the Phabricator decisions are minuted for process's sake). Thank you.

CC World University and School, potentially planning to develop with MediaWiki in all of Wikipedia's ~ 300 languages, plus the remaining 7,638 other ones, would consider being part of this Architecture Committee subgroup, or forked group (re the [Wikitech-l] Scope of ArchCom email thread).

@RobLa-WMF : Can you please clarify the first sentence "We now MediaWiki-RfCs and RfC, which now greatly complicates being able to rename "mediawiki-rfcs" " ... in this https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T124255 ?

Thanks, Romaine. After donating sister-project CC World University & School (WUaS) to CC Wikidata to celebrate its 3rd birthday, WUaS would like to participate in and help develop this.

Thanks for the clarification that "Wiki Loves Open Data [:)] should guide organizations through the process of contributing content to Wikidata" (https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T104701) ... and World University looks forward to learning how this will work. I also recently posted my email of yesterday to you, Quim, and Jane here - http://scott-macleod.blogspot.com/2015/07/impatiens-species-structuring-world.html - in terms of WUaS's ~ 10 main foci/areas, as possible contributions to Wikidata, and establishing a framework to engage with data engineers and open data organizations.
