Rationale and timeline[edit]

In Fall 2010, Rob Lanphier was contracted to execute an assessment of then-current Wikimedia engineering activities and processes. He also provided recommendations about how to improve said processes.

One of these recommendations was to create "project pages" to increase transparency and accountability, as well as to facilitate volunteer engagement in activities led by Wikimedia engineering staff.

The first project pages were started in late 2010, with little success. Many of them remained stubs, or even empty.

Guillaume Paumier resumed work on this project in March 2011. After putting the infrastructure in place (using templates), he started to create, update, rewrite, and organize the pages.

As of late July 2011, most project pages are in place and up-to-date.
