14 May 2013[edit]


  • TODO - Once the board approves the budget, let's talk about how to plan to use the VDC budget & the dev tools contractor budget
  • TODO - Quim, Rob & Sumana to discuss metrics contract

ambassadors / noticeboard notifications[edit]


  • Does that make sense?
  • or meta around Tech (Guillaume currently thinking meta, but there are arguments for both)
  • any questions / comments / advice?

"Less is more" discussion[edit]

Proposal by Quim: Quim: let's try to think about activities when posting a tech blog post, and vice versa, just to check if closer collaboration is relevant

wikimedia-l thread/rules for volunteers' participation[edit]

Andre figuring out policy re adminship in BZ, groups - aim for early June for having a policy stated

Quick update by Andre about his outreach to dev teams for regular triage meetings (if time left)[edit] Some teams Andre meets with regularly. Some teams take care of triage on their own. And then on TODO: Echo in E2, QA component.

  • AFT is better now - fewer unprioritized & Highest
  • WM Labs - Andre can change priorities; the Labs team doesn't really use it.

Situation is a lot better than it was 6 months ago!
