About this board

What do we want
to build or achieve together
over the next 15 years?

For 16 years, Wikimedians have worked together to build the largest free knowledge resource in human history. During this time, we've grown from a small group of editors to a diverse community of editors, developers, affiliates, readers, donors, and partners.

Today, we are more than a group of websites. We have become a movement rooted in values and a powerful vision:

A world in which every single human being can freely share in the sum of all knowledge.

All of us now have an opportunity to decide where we go from here. We can decide how we make our vision a reality. What will we have achieved 15 years from now? What role do we want to play in the world in 2030? Who will have joined our movement? What work lies ahead of us? These are questions we can answer together.

As a movement, we are starting a broad discussion to begin to define Wikimedia's future role in the world and develop a collaborative strategy to fulfill that role.

This discussion page, provided by the MediaWiki Stakeholders' Group, invites members of the MediaWiki community - developers, system administrators, users, consultants, hosting providers, and others who value the MediaWiki software - to join the Wikimedia Strategy 2017 discussion. Discussion here will be summarized as input to Wikimedia Strategy 2017.

You are warmly invited to join the conversation.

MediaWiki as a first-class entity in the movement

The MediaWiki software provides an important platform to support the movement vision: A world in which every single human being can freely share in the sum of all knowledge. This applies to MediaWiki as a fundamental component of Wikipedia but also to its many sister wikis and third-party wikis that are contributing to the vision. It would benefit the movement to give the software the attention it deserves to allow it to grow and thrive. The easier it is for MediaWiki to be deployed and maintained in third-party environments, the more the spread of free knowledge will be enabled.
