Benny Situ, Ryan Kaldari, Brandon Harris, Alolita Sharma, Oliver Keyes, Howie Fung, and Ian Baker met to discuss sprint planning. They mapped out various user flows leading to article creation, agreed on a proposed landing system and defined changes that are going to be required.

Copy updates have been finalized and updated. All outstanding items have been resolved including testing current code against MediaWiki 1.19. The screenshots of the landing system are a little larger than the finalized version: there are no embedded login/registration form, nor tooltips for mouse-over. The wizard and several of its options have been prototyped on Wikimedia Labs.

The team is pushing a version of ACW to EE Lab for review today. It will have some templates from en.wikipedia. Community review to follow.

Benny Situ, Ryan Kaldari, Brandon Harris, Andrew Garrett, and Ian Baker released ACW to Labs (development is ongoing, so bugs are expected). Oliver Keyes is collecting feedback from the community. Fabrice Florin started to facilitate new development as product manager.

2012-04-monthly[edit]

Ian Baker, Benny Situ, Ryan Kaldari and Brandon Harris have developed the Article Creation landing system, while focusing on deploying the New Page Triage (NPT) this month. Oliver Keyes prepared new templates for a proposed 'Create a Draft' section. Fabrice Florin managed the project and created a workflow diagram to illustrate the interdependencies between ACW and NTP. The goal is to collect and analyze usage data on ACW in May with Dario Taraborelli, in order to plan our next steps for this project, which is likely to be deployed alongside NPT in coming weeks. The current ACW prototype is available for testing on Wikimedia Labs.

Fabrice Florin, Benny Situ, Ryan Kaldari, Ian Baker, Oliver Keyes and Brandon Harris have put this Article Creation feature on hold, in order to make more progress on the New Pages Feed project (code-named Page Triage). We are not comfortable deploying this feature until the New Pages Feed is released, because it may create more work for page patrollers. Dario Taraborelli prepared a streamlined metrics plan to test this feature, and determine whether or not to build a special drafts tool. These metrics will be collected next month, once the New Pages Feed project is further along. The current ACW prototype is available for testing on Wikimedia Labs.
