Type of session:
This session will give an overview of the work that is underway to develop a strategy for MediaWiki and present the product roadmap for the upcoming months.
- How do we envision the future of MediaWiki as the essential platform for the Wikimedia projects and as an open source project?
- What are the key challenges and opportunities?
- How can we grow the number of people who contribute to the software?
- How can we increase the sustainability of the platform; better serve our key workflows and needs; and provide easier, faster and cohesive paths to feature development?
- What does effective and responsible stewardship look like?
These and other questions shape the path to explore the future direction for MediaWiki. A highlight of this session will be looking into the key themes that arose from early interviews with a cross-section of people.
