Editing team/Weekly triage meetings

From MediaWiki.org
Jump to: navigation, search

Each week, the Editing team have an open, public triage meeting focussing on which tasks need to be done for editing tools including VisualEditor. These discussions are held via Google Hangouts at this link a generally fixed time (12:00 to 12:30 PDT on Tuesdays), in Google Hangouts.

Senior Product Manager for Editing Dan Garry and other team members look forward to discussing which bugs and features are most important to you. Read the invitation to the developer community to participate to this initiative.

Ahead of joining the meeting, please review the current priorities, look at the nominated and existing blockers, and think about any tasks you think we are missing. Anyone with an account can nominate a blocker, even if you cannot attend a meeting. To nominate a Phabricator task as a blocker, just add an "Associate Project" comment on the task against the "VisualEditor" project. (If you want, you may additionally leave a message at VisualEditor/Feedback with the Phabricator task number and a request for the item to be discussed at the meeting.)


  1. Review of current focus areas and release criteria: Editing team/Current priorities (2 mins)
  2. Review of current activity via Phlogiston: http://phlogiston.wmflabs.org/ve_report.html (1 min)
  3. Resolved task review – link changes each week, see below (2 mins)
  4. Task triage: https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/project/board/483/ (25 mins)

Looking forward to seeing you there! If you're attending and you have comments or questions, be bold and raise your hand :-)

Community Liaisons' review[edit]

CLs review the list of tasks closed during the meeting, usually on the day after. They try to notify about tasks' resolution in related threads on feedback boards. Because of current technical limitations, and because not all the feedback is truly centralised somewhere yet, they ask that a link to the thread where the bug or feature request was originally reported is included in the task description on Phabricator (rather than in comments, since those can be easily missed and the old ones are automatically "concealed" by Phab). If you notice any thread referencing a task that has been closed since, and without any indication of this, please feel free to fix it. The {{Tracked|T000000|Resolved}} template is being used and recommended for that.

As of late August, we are waiting for a bug in Flow to be fixed, as it's preventing the feedback boards to load correctly, and proper followup can't happen until then.
