leila added a comment to T337883: Write and publish a Wikimedia research best practice whitepaper .

Hi folks. A few updates on this epic tasks:

  • as many of you know, we already have a reasonable draft out for feedback. We're going to iterate on the current text based on the feedback and some other todos we already know we have.
  • I'd like to update the delivery time for the whitepaper for the following reason. We are currently past March which was our self-imposed deadline for the whitepaper and there is still some work to do on the paper (given the previous point). We also have a member of the writing committee going on a 2-month leave. We agreed within the writing committee that we want everyone whose name is on the paper to have a chance to read the final version of the paper before it goes out (logic: if your name is on something, you should know what it is.:). With all of this in mind, I'm going to update the deadline for delivering the final paper to July 27th. Based on earlier conversations with en:ArbCom I don't expect major issues raised by ArbCom as the group wanted to see progress and we're making progress. If I have read the signals wrong or misunderstood, please speak up and I'm happy to go to the drawing board. Otherwise, July 27th it is.
  • By July 27th, what we aim to deliver is: the paper itself plus the communication plan and perhaps some parts of the communication ready to be executed.

leila added a comment to T362736: Research Fund 2023-24: Make final decisions.

I'm setting a deadline for our decisions to be made which is earlier than the notification date. The reason for that is that we need some time to write the blog post and also there will always be loose ends to close. It's ambitious but we have done more complicated than this so let's try if it works with out schedules.

This keeps coming up in different places (we're again discussing it as part of the knowledge integrity roadmap), however, we have A LOT on our plate right now and I don't see how we can pick this up. I'm going to move it to freezer and let's bring it back to the Research board when we can work on it.

  • I did a pass over your work and the team's comments and added my items there (including a promised additional column to make it clear which pieces of the work should likely move to T340691 (which is a bulk of it;).
  • I'm going to move this task to Q4 and update the deadline so you can continue work on the second part of it which is initiating the conversations for the next roadmap. For this piece, let's coordinate tightly to make sure we don't overburden the team with future thinking at once given that this is also ongoing T347266 and of course annual planning. :)
