@bd808 really appreciate it (and agreed).
@Aklapper Usmanmuhd is a GSoC student and they have a deadline to finish their project with us.
This task is now stalled until the situation with the backfill loss is resolved. As of now, I have decided to swap the position with a research scientist position to be able to finish T228356 by hiring the second person. This task will be picked up again once the backfill is restored.
The first position is filled. working on the second position.

@Usmanmuhd thanks for the reminder. I'll ask around again.
@Milimetric thanks! I added two questions at the end: field of research and email address. I changed the deadline to 2019-09-03 and started advertising for it now.
The date is now finalized: 2019-10-28 to 2019-11-01

@Halfak thanks for the input. We'll make sure we have it as part of our thinking.
@Milimetric @mforns I created a survey and added you both as collaborators. You can make changes in it directly. One place that I need help with is in the introduction to the survey. We need to make it much clearer and exciting there for people to know what data we're talking about. :)

Dan and I had a quick meeting about this task just now. We agreed on the timeline and discussed at a very high level the important points to capture in it. I'm assigning this task to Dansanfran now, cuz he's working on it. :)
The first week of October is no longer an option due to multiple reasons: WWW submission deadline being the week after that, a vacation request, and Travel not having capacity to schedule it for then without a 12 week notice.

Dan, Marcel, and I met on 2019-08-02 and discussed this task. I updated the task description based on that conversation. Dan and Marcel: if you see something missing, please correct it.
@mako re making the program page, I messaged (on Telegram) KcVelaga - Krishna per Liam's recommendation. Let's see if they can do it. If not, you or I will do it.
The meeting request is sent to Sarah Roth.

- [Miriam] to follow up with Rachel to figure out how much time we have for a pitch at the beginning of the hackathon.
- [All] to prepare 1-2 mini tasks for the hackathon.
- [Diego] to coordinate sign ups for sessions to make sure we have a good coverage of community presentations. ([[ To learn about the needs of the communities and turn them to research questions when relevant. | sign-up sheet ]])

@JFishback_WMF Gilles can speak to the timelines better. From my perspective, the sooner the better so it doesn't fall in the backlog of things to do. :)
