Boost templates is a feature that allows pages to be ranked higher/lower in the search results.
This feature is currently activated on enwiki via a [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MediaWiki:Cirrussearch-boost-templates|System message]].
The purpose of this task is:
**1. Prioritize wikis **
We host many wikis, some of them are very small and may not benefit from this feature, such features are useful only when queries return a high number of results. IMHO we should first reach out communities that work on large wikis. (boost templates for enwiki should be reviewed).
**2. Define //the output// and reach out communities**
The purpose of the //boost templates// feature is to include a criteria that reflects the quality of page.
Most wikis uses templates to flag such information, we should maybe reuse the definition used by [[https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Objective_Revision_Evaluation_Service|ORES wp10]] based on [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Version_1.0_Editorial_Team|Version_1.0_Editorial_Team]] or [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:WikiProject_Wikipedia/Assessment|Assessment]].
The output would be the list of templates that correspond to each element in the scale.
Example for the french wikipedia:
NOTE: we don't need the communities to define the precise weights, we will use the relevancy lab to adjust them.
