Front-end standards group

Project / workboard[edit]

Members of the Front-end Standards Group surface front-end development topics from their respective Foundation teams or parts of the organization to the overarching group in order to find common solutions. Much of this group's work is in the Phabricator Front-end standards workboard.

If you like to raise attention about a specific topic to a forthcoming meeting, please add it to the group's Etherpad.

For general questions around the group's activities please contact Volker Eckl <>.

Note: For name differences see Phab project creation rules. With spaces or underscores, the project cannot be mentioned in Markdown.
