It wasn't a top-down proposal.
I think I've said this elsewhere, but the idea of having a "Community Tech" team continues to strike me as very strange as it immediately raises the question of what everyone else is working on. "What do you mean there's a Community Tech team? Are there technology teams at the Wikimedia Foundation working on technology not for the Wikimedia community?" Or put another way: every team at the Wikimedia Foundation should be carefully considering the needs of the Wikimedia community and working with it. It's also really not impressive to create a survey and solicit ideas. In my brief skimming, a lot of the proposals listed at <https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/2015_Community_Wishlist_Survey> aren't even new ideas. I'm happy to give credit when some of these proposals are properly implemented, by whoever takes the time to create a plan of action, write the necessary code, and get it deployed. But for now, it seems pretty silly to try to give credit for essentially having a group of people vote on Phabricator Maniphest tasks.
