Through conversation with @Keegan and @Whatamidoing-WMF, it looks like Whatamidoing will be helping with this endeavor.
In the aftermath of [[ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Autoconfirmed_article_creation_trial/Request_for_comment_on_permanent_implementation | ACTRIAL logic becoming permanent ]], we're expecting an increase of traffic to the Articles for Creation (AfC) process. To that end, we began [[ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:WikiProject_Articles_for_creation/AfC_Process_Improvement_May_2018 | this conversation ]] with the AfC community and there was a lot of discussion on the [[ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia_talk:WikiProject_Articles_for_creation/AfC_Process_Improvement_May_2018 | talk page ]].
The Community Tech team is settling down on a likely set of development work, which is specifically [[ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia_talk:WikiProject_Articles_for_creation/AfC_Process_Improvement_May_2018#Update_2018-04-25 | described here ]].
The request at this point is for a Community Liaison to follow along with the conversation, and help with decisions and communications as needed.
Our expectation is that this work will occur during May and potentially during part of June.
