howief added a comment to T86002: "User-facing feature release" session at 2015 MediaWiki Developer Summit.

Thanks Fabrice. This session is meant to be primarily about process, so let's keep it focused. For example, I wouldn't recommend going into the research findings because many of the findings are specific to MediaViewer.

@Gilles Thanks for creating this. I've actually been working with the PMs on getting a basic framework in place for our end-to-end product development process (see draft https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Wikimedia_Product_Development/Product_Development_Process). It's pretty basic right now, but the goal is to eventually have a unified methodology that describes how features are selected, designed, validated, rolled out, how to involve our community, etc -- many of the bullet points you list. And when I say "unified", I don't mean that every team does things that same exact way (to your "standardization" bullet). But I do think there should be an overall toolkit that teams can choose from, and that we add to over time as we develop more sophisticated means of rolling out, testing, etc.
