The next deadline:
- 2016-11-28: Deadline for consolidating a discussion, regularly summarized in the proposal.
What is expected for each main area (this is my own opinion, feel free to disagree):
- Go through the proposals missing active discussion and try to push the conversation in those that you think should be pre-scheduled
To be clear, tasks missing an interesting discussion will have a very hard time getting one of the ~18 slots for pre-scheduled sessions. Currently we have 49 proposals, and 3 of them (Community Wishlist) have their slot assured. This means that today we have 46 sessions competing for 15 slots:
- A plan for the Community Wishlist 2016 top results: 3 proposals (to be scheduled)
- Handling wiki content beyond plaintext: 12
- Building a sustainable user experience together: 5
- Building on Wikimedia services: APIs and Developer Resources: 4
- How to manage our technical debt: 4
- Artificial Intelligence to build and navigate content: 7
- How to grow our technical community: 9
- None (all of them related to editorial collaboration): 5
We will send a communication to all the registered participants and the main mailing lists encouraging everybody to participate in their preferred proposals, and also to award Phabricator tokens to the sessions they are interested about. All this regardless of whether they will attend the Summit or not (since we want to improve remote participation). Tokens will be considered a complement to register "proven interest"about a session.
