MediaWiki groups require MediaWiki reps.
- There needs to be a human link between the MediaWiki group and the rest of the community, including the Wikimedia Foundation and, eventually, a Wikimedia chapter.
- Whoever is interacting on behalf of a WikiMedia group with other communities will be seen as a MediaWiki representative anyway.
Let's start simple. The only requirements are:
- A section in your Talk page explaining your reasons to become a MediaWiki rep.
- Announcement of your candidacy to mediawiki-l and wikitech-l.
- Endorsements by at least two Wikimedia Foundation members or MediaWiki maintainers in that section of your Talk page.
- Discussion period of at least 2 weeks.
Once we have a bunch of reps we can evolve based on need. See how e.g. Mozilla is organizing reps.
