Hello! This is a bit of a rant[^1] but more importantly a call to fix a problem that appeared recently.
Let me start by commending the engagement team for the work that’s been done with the targeted events initiative. It is awesome to see coordination happening around that and how we can be more effective by making such strategic decisions. However, İ'm a bit sad about the wiki situation which is a bit of a mess. The main issue is that we already had the Events namespace and it is not being updated as part of the initiative. Whenever we do attend an event listed on the TargetedEvent main page, it should be added to the Events web page. * Engagement/TargetedEvents is difficult to get to by browsing links from the home page (and that is fine). It is a work document and not something we necessarily need to expose to the outside world more than it currently is. * Events is really easy to find (linked to from the Home page) and serves as our public archive. We should aim to make it comprehensive and accurate. It serves many purposes, like showing off how active we were, documenting what we actually did (handy when you write things such as the annual report) and have a reference for organizing other events later. Some time ago there was a huge amount of work to make the wiki tidy and this reorganization (led by Allan if memory serves me well) resulted amongst other things in the current form of the Home page. Let’s try and keep the wiki in a good shape! We need people to step up and volunteer with the following action items: ACTION: go through the list of events at https://wiki.gnome.org/Engagement/TargetedEvents/2017 and make sure the status (attended, didn’t attend) is accurate ACTION: go through the list of events at https://wiki.gnome.org/Engagement/TargetedEvents/2017 and make sure the ones e attended are reported back to https://wiki.gnome.org/Events ACTION: for each event of https://wiki.gnome.org/Engagement/TargetedEvents/2017 that has a subpage in the TargetedEvents namespace (e.g. https://wiki.gnome.org/Engagement/TargetedEvents/2017/OpenSourceBridge), move the page to the Events namespace if appropriate (with wiki redirection directive) This isn’t terribly complicated and mostly requires time to do it. Don’t let things like “I don’t know how to create a redirection” stop you, people can help you on the engagement channel.
