Please allow project mentors atleast 1-2 days to respond to your queries on Phabricator / other communication channels and around a week to review and give feedback on your work. Thanks for your patience!
Removing assignee, as several people can work on this in parallel.
@Successoghogho @Anshika_bhatt_20 As far as I understand this, you need to provide a summary in the task description itself here on Phabricator. You can edit the task description by clicking "Edit Task". You can learn more about editing / commenting on tasks in Phabricator here: https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Phabricator/Help#Commenting_and_editing_a_task

Okay, the list makes sense! I will pick top 15 from each list as we have 30 slots allocated for this area.
@Aklapper Ahha, you are right! No, we cannot send swag to all WMF staff :D Looking at last year's data, I recall you provided information of "independent" code contributors for a similar task. And the same would apply for this year.
@Pablo I am documenting the ideas here that we concluded in our meeting last week around connecting WikiWorkshop & Wikimedia Hackathon.
- Promote the developer track of WikiWorkshop through the Hackathon channels. For example, mention the developer track in the next batch of emails sent to Hackathon participants.
- List projects that will emerge from the developer track of the WikiWorkshop under the Hackathon's project ideas list and promote them via the call for projects/sessions.
- List the developer track of WikiWorkshop as a meetup on the Hackathon's satellite events page.
- Hackathon team to share with the WikiWorkshop organizing team, a list of talk pages of developers who will attend the Hackathon (and have already revealed their info in public) and might also be interested in contributing to the developer track. Research team can then get in touch w/ these folks.

@Aklapper No, we didn't follow any such criteria last year, so let's stick w/ that.
Satellite events announced https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Wikimedia_Hackathon_2023/Satellite_events
Design for three items have been finalized. Next step is to work on a purchase order.

I am in the idea of creating a wikimediatech account at wikis.world as long as we know how we will continue to post the same stuff on Twitter until that platform exists, as we still have a large following there. I hope reposting is still available as a temporary solution and even if not, we can still manually copy/paste stuff.

@KBach I really like the format of the two guides now. It is much clear and seems like the way to go, even though it is now more work.

@awight Hi, when you get a chance, please upload this proposal on the Outreachy's website as explained in the comment above. TY!

It sounds like a great project and is perfect for GSoC! We ran out of slots for Outreachy this year, but with GSoC, there is no limit. The only thing that I'd like to ensure is that there is at least one mentor in your team with a technical background. It would also be helpful to clarify more what you mean by "external media repositories". Could you share some examples perhaps? Same for the intended workflow, could you give one example of reading media, contributing to Commons, and then pulling it back in Wikidocumentaries (if I got the flow right)? A bit more visual explanation might be helpful here.

@SDunlap Thank you so much for adding this proposal and for your willingness to mentor :) We had limited slots for Outreachy this time, and they are all filled, so I'd suggest promoting the project via GSoC. I've added the related tag. As it will be your first time mentoring in GSoC (if I recall correctly :)), I'd recommend going through the mentor's manual here: https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Google_Summer_of_Code/Mentors. If there are any questions, please let me know.
@awight Thanks for adding this! You can upload the project proposal whenever you feel ready on the Outreachy's program website, as explained in step 4: https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Outreachy/Mentors#_Before_the_program. In Step 3, there is more info about why I've restricted this task to the group "Outreachy Mentors" for now. @Simulo As it will be your first time mentoring in Outreachy (if I recall correctly :)), I'd recommend going through the mentor's manual that I've linked in this comment. If there are any questions, please let me know.
