A central MediaWiki account edited by humans

Qgil-WMF (talkcontribs)

A proposal taking into account the discussion without conclusions that took place a year ago:

One account

  • (14 followers on 2012-12-18) is the source for all news related with the MediaWiki community, including Wikimedia Tech.
  • Title: "MediaWiki"
  • Description: "News from the MediaWiki project. Powering Wikipedia and the Wikimedia movement."



  • Sumana and Quim have access right now.
  • FIXME We probably need more than this, in terms of more people or a more open workflow.
  • FIXME answering feedback in the source and replicas needs also attention.

Aggregated feeds Even if the updates are written mainly manually, we can have some evident feeds aggregated to save work:


  • Wikimedia.
  • MediaWiki groups.

In a perfectly consistent world a MediaWiki Group Mobile would exist and they would adopt @WikimediaMobile under their scope.  :)

While that happens... It is a "Wikimedia" account but it has a nice % of MediaWiki / technical content. We can just follow it from this main account.
