I look forward to seeing how this works out. I sometimes worry that it seems like over the years that developers have become more and more separate from the "community". Our community is our heart; It is why we are all here. Having teams dedicated to working closely with our communities sounds like an excellent idea. -- bawolff _______________________________________________ Wikimedia-l mailing list, guidelines at: https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Mailing_lists/Guidelines Wikimediafirstname.lastname@example.org Unsubscribe: https://lists.wikimedia.org/mailman/listinfo/wikimedia-l, <mailto:wikimedia-l-requ...@lists.wikimedia.org?subject=unsubscribe>
