Thanks to Pine for pointing out that some emails to WikimediaAnnounce-l were not going through to Wikimedia-l; I think this is such a post. I originally sent this on 24 October, and the only thing in the list archive is a reply from SarahSV, thanking us for the work  (much appreciated, by the way).
So, here is what I sent in case someone missed it. If you've seen it already, you can disregard. Thanks in advance. Greetings, > Wikimedians, please review something we are working on for the Wikimedia > Foundation, the Technical Collaboration Guideline . > The Technical Collaboration Guideline (TCG) is a set of best practice > recommendations, for planning and communicating product and project > information to Wikimedia communities, in order to work better, together. > The TCG allows Wikimedia Foundation (WMF) Product teams and Wikimedia > communities to work together in a systematic way in the product development > and deployment cycle. It is hoped that the TCG is useful enough to be > utilized in planning and communications regarding any project, from anyone. > The TCG is intended to be flexible as plans and products change in > development; it is a guide whose contents will help build collaborative > relationships. > The initial draft of the TCG was written after discussions in small groups > with members of the Community Liaisons and Product Management teams, to > identify successes and failures in communication, and what we can do to > encourage collaboration with the communities. Over the next month, I am > seeking review and feedback from Wikimedia community members. All feedback > that is left will be read; if there is a case for immediate action, it will > be made. All feedback will be taken into consideration when editing the > next draft of the TCG. Please keep in mind that the TCG is intended to be > lightweight information and instruction and will not be completely > comprehensive. The TCG and the conversations about it are in English, but > comments from all languages are welcome. > Over the next few days, this invitation for review will be distributed > across the wikis. > Also, within the coming weeks, I'll be announcing a review on behalf of > the WMF's Design team. They have been working diligently over the past few > months to identify and define the purpose of design within the WMF, and > they are looking forward to sharing this statement of purpose with the > broader Wikimedia movement for comment. If you're interested, please be on > the lookout for this review announcement. > I look forward to reading your comments on the wiki . 0. https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Technical_Collaboration_Guideline 1. https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Talk:Technical_Collaboration_Guideline 2. https://lists.wikimedia.org/pipermail/wikimedia-l/2016-October/085298.html -- Keegan Peterzell Technical Collaboration Specialist Wikimedia Foundation _______________________________________________ Wikimedia-l mailing list, guidelines at: https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Mailing_lists/Guidelines New messages to: Wikimediaemail@example.com Unsubscribe: https://lists.wikimedia.org/mailman/listinfo/wikimedia-l, <mailto:wikimedia-l-requ...@lists.wikimedia.org?subject=unsubscribe>
