2019-03-27[edit]

Callouts[edit]

  • Research launched call for feedback on section recommendations. Please take a look if you're interested: https://lists.wikimedia.org/pipermail/wiki-research-l/2019-March/006728.html
  • Our JD for a Senior Software Engineer on Scoring Platform is live https://boards.greenhouse.io/wikimedia/jobs/1608084
  • WikimediaEditorTasks will (tentatively) go live on wikidatawiki on Thurs after the WM train rolls.
    • It's mostly internal-facing (for consumption by the apps) and will not get any meaningful traffic at first (while the Android team tests), but in coming weeks please keep an eye out for (unlikely) impact on page save time & DB replication performance.
