Today's quarterly review[edit]

https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Volunteer_coordination_and_outreach/ECT_July_2013_quarterly_review lessons learned - talk about code review backlog - fixed

  • metrics, specific focus areas to widen bottlenecks, figuring out how to do maintainership right - will address

nuance re "lack of awareness" - fixed nuance re pm volunteers - fixed quim to give women OPW/GSoC stats remove [1] - fixed Goals: 10+ volunteers writing automated tests? now 6: fixed add to "next" that Guillaume on VE for 1/3 of this quarter - fixed demote community metrics thing - fixed Open questions if we have time:

  • are there changes we need to be making to wikitech.wikimedia.org/mediawiki? What are your pain points?
  • coding and review bottlenecks we want to fix:
   are JavaScript and security the top priorities?
   Tech talks & helping produce & curate videos/tutorials - ok approach?
   What about performance and Puppetization?

Misc[edit]

  • No need to chat, but for http://korma.wmflabs.org/ Quim needs your input on KEY metrics, things that help measuring our performance or making decisions e.g. "time to resolve bugs", "time to resolve gerrit changesets", etc.
    • +1 to time to resolve gerrit changesets
    • also, # of open changesets (not opened)
    • break down by branch? eg 1.21 vs 1.22 dev cycles comparison
  • Also Quim wants to say Thank You for the Tech News. It's been several weeks now and the quality / interest stands. Well done!
    Please share this with user:odder, who's been doing an awesome job on tech news, sometimes doing all the work
    I will. Quim.
