Hold a succesful pilot of Discourse on [[ https://discourse.wmflabs.org/ | https://discourse.wmflabs.org/ ]] as an alternative to wikimedia-l mailinglist.
This is a tracking ticket. Please create a ticket for anything that blocks discourse.wmflabs.org to be a succesful pilot as an alternative to wikimedia-l mailinglist.
- As a Wikimedian I want to share news about what is going on in the movement with involved other Wikimedians so that those Wikimedians stay informed about what is going on
- As a Wikimedian I want to raise an issue to be discussed with fellow Wikimedians so that fellow Wikimedians can share their opinion
- As a Wikimedian I want to announce changes in the composition of boards of chapters and commission so that outgoing officers can be thanked and incoming officers can be welcomed
