Some quick feedback on QA/Strategy

AKlapper (WMF) (talkcontribs)

Some quick'n'dirty feedback as I got to run but wanted to take a look this week:

  • Community incentives: With regard to very basic reputation, "Weekly Bug Summary" on wikitech-l has a section "Top 5 bug report closers", and has the "Top 10 people who resolved the most reports in the last 7 days" list and being (and staying) in that list can be intrinsic motivation, but requires making that page better visible (and fixing the bug in the lower section).
  • Proposed non-existing "QA priorities" link should be QA/Priorities instead of QA_priorities.
  • "Participation: At least 10 non-WMF contributors in synchronous activities." - Sounds good and challenging as a goal, but will be tough for bugdays.
  • "Organization: Topic and dates are agreed 2 weeks before the activity starts." I've failed with that so far, but defining it early would be helpful for marketing. +1.
  • "Contributor retention": Interpretation of term: "Contributor stays in community" might provide a better retention level than "Contributor stays in QA activity", as triage team members often become developers at some point.

I've made a few minor changes. I think the page looks good overall, but I suggest that we specify some possible ranges of numerical values or qualitative assessments for "Participants can start learning / contributing right away" and "Involvement of Wikimedia editors". I think it's good enough to go forward with and we'll learn more as we go.
