A good suggestion for improvement has developed from the deletion discussion of a template: At least in my reading there are several users who find it helpful to provide extension pages with an additional "used by" template.
What's this about? Similar to the already existing WMF template "OnWikimedia" the goal is to give extension pages a marker that this extension is also used in bundles, distributions, maybe even in larger websites or wiki farms. This way visitors of the page will see an information that the extension is "mission critical" or "best breed" in certain contexts. Especially since there is no real other way to know which extensions are widely used and which are not. This would hopefully also help us all to better understand which extensions need to be considered when technological structures change or which extensions need continuous maintainers. And, of course, in general, it is also positive feedback for the developers.
The deletion discussion made clear that such a template must be designed in a way that it does not promote a single project, but leaves room for as many projects as possible to be displayed in the template. And it could or should of course tend to bring together non-Wikimedia projects and Wikimedia projects, point to these projects, but must not overload the screen. It must also be clearly recognizable (in the documentation) that the template can be removed from the corresponding page at any time if the maintainer does not want the template there.
I have here a link for a first suggestion with three variants how this could look like, to give a visual impression of what we are talking about. First you see a variant with icons, a variant with text only and a variant with logo and text.
Now I would be interested in a first feedback, whether this intiative should be pursued at all and what advice and concerns there are about it. Then there is the question of whether the decision-making process should go through an RfC or whether we can already clarify this here, because everyone is for or against it anyway. I am looking forward to your opinions and help in order to move the issue forward in a timely manner.
