The purpose of this straw poll is to gauge interest in the different topics that we could discuss during the upcoming Architecture Summit 2014. We asked you to help us form clusters of related RFCs and we have now grouped those clusters in five themes:
- Backend internals
- Software management
We would like to ask all MediaWiki developers to vote in this straw poll. The results of the straw poll and the ideas of the organizing committee will form the final program.
- You can vote, by adding your name, to as many RFC clusters as you want (approval voting) but don't vote for anything that you wouldn't agree to take an action item on at the Architecture Summit.
- We want to close this straw poll on January 8, 2014.
- Help us in driving the turnout -- if you are missing names of people you think that should vote please prod them on our behalf as well. We really want the poll to reflect the interest of the entire MediaWiki community.
- The clustering of the RFCs is taken from RFC clusters -- if you see a discrepancy between those two pages please either let Diederik know or be bold :)
