Re: [Wikimedia-l] Quarterly reviews of high priority WMF initiatives

2013-11-11 Thread Tilman Bayer
Minutes and slides from the third quarterly review of the Foundation's
VisualEditor and Parsoid teams are now available at
https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Metrics_and_activities_meetings/Quarterly_reviews/VisualEditor-Parsoid/November_2013

 Hi folks,

 to increase accountability and create more opportunities for course
 corrections and resourcing adjustments as necessary, Sue's asked me
 and Howie Fung to set up a quarterly project evaluation process,
 starting with our highest priority initiatives. These are, according
 to Sue's narrowing focus recommendations which were approved by the
 Board [1]:

 - Visual Editor
 - Mobile (mobile contributions + Wikipedia Zero)
 - Editor Engagement (also known as the E2 and E3 teams)
 - Funds Dissemination Committe and expanded grant-making capacity

 I'm proposing the following initial schedule:

 January:
 - Editor Engagement Experiments

 February:
 - Visual Editor
 - Mobile (Contribs + Zero)

 March:
 - Editor Engagement Features (Echo, Flow projects)
 - Funds Dissemination Committee

 We’ll try doing this on the same day or adjacent to the monthly
 metrics meetings [2], since the team(s) will give a presentation on
 their recent progress, which will help set some context that would
 otherwise need to be covered in the quarterly review itself. This will
 also create open opportunities for feedback and questions.

 My goal is to do this in a manner where even though the quarterly
 review meetings themselves are internal, the outcomes are captured as
 meeting minutes and shared publicly, which is why I'm starting this
 discussion on a public list as well. I've created a wiki page here
 which we can use to discuss the concept further:

 https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Metrics_and_activities_meetings/Quarterly_reviews

 The internal review will, at minimum, include:

 Sue Gardner
 myself
 Howie Fung
 Team members and relevant director(s)
 Designated minute-taker

 So for example, for Visual Editor, the review team would be the Visual
 Editor / Parsoid teams, Sue, me, Howie, Terry, and a minute-taker.

 I imagine the structure of the review roughly as follows, with a
 duration of about 2 1/2 hours divided into 25-30 minute blocks:

 - Brief team intro and recap of team's activities through the quarter,
 compared with goals
 - Drill into goals and targets: Did we achieve what we said we would?
 - Review of challenges, blockers and successes
 - Discussion of proposed changes (e.g. resourcing, targets) and other
 action items
 - Buffer time, debriefing

 Once again, the primary purpose of these reviews is to create improved
 structures for internal accountability, escalation points in cases
 where serious changes are necessary, and transparency to the world.

 In addition to these priority initiatives, my recommendation would be
 to conduct quarterly reviews for any activity that requires more than
 a set amount of resources (people/dollars). These additional reviews
 may however be conducted in a more lightweight manner and internally
 to the departments. We’re slowly getting into that habit in
 engineering.

 As we pilot this process, the format of the high priority reviews can
 help inform and support reviews across the organization.

 Feedback and questions are appreciated.

 All best,
 Erik

June 2009 was indeed Wiki Loves Art /NL. But wasn't that also already based
on the (different in scope and way it was organized though) New York
edition earlier that year? Smaller in number of organizations, but I
believe not very small in number of photos.

Dear nemobis,

as you know we are shutting down the Toolserver. Therefore we have
set all accounts to expire on

6th of January 2014

Please migrate your tools to Labs.

For packing and deleting all your stuff except the user-store you can
use the scripts
byebye
and
burnbridges
on nightshade.toolserver.org. The first tool creates tarballs of all
your data except for the user-store and the second tool deletes all
this data as well as expires your account.

Best regards
Your TS admins

 Dear Micru,

 Wonderful initiative! From India the Malayalam Wikisource community might
 be keen to take part in this. They have also recently released an offline
 CD (volume 2) of the Malayalam Wikisource.

 Taking the liberty to copy the Malayalam list on this for them to take
 lead
 on this.

 CIS (not from the A2K Grant) will be glad to sponsor two prizes (one
 e-book
 reader and one portable pen-scanner), if the ML community take lead on
 this.

 Cheers,

  So far WM-IT and Amical Wikimedia have comited each the prize for their

Re: [Wikimedia-l] Fwd: Toolserver decommissioning - migrate to Labs

2013-11-11 Thread Silke Meyer
Hi!

The toolserver will run until June 30th 2014. Nothing changed about this date.

As announced to all toolserver user accounts today, all accounts will
expire in January 2014. They can be renewed as usual. The two
toolserver admins Marlen Caemmerer and Alexander Mette provided two
scripts which will help you to pack and download your data and delete
them afterwards.

The reasons for my decision to have the accounts expire: First of all,
I would like to remind everyone to think about their tools' migration
early and get help if needed. Second, we are dealing the data of a few
hundred expired accounts already. The owners shall have the chance to
re-login and collect their data. They have been reactivated and will
expire in January, too. Third, I would like to encourage all those who
already moved over to Tool Labs to download and then their stuff
themselves.

Best, Silke
