The longer version:
The Community Wishlist Survey decides what the Wikimedia Foundation
Community Tech team will work on over the next year. The team is responsible
for addressing the top 10 wishes on the list, as well as some wishes from
smaller groups and projects that are doing important work, but don't have
the numbers to get their proposal into the top 10. The Wishlist is also
used by volunteer developers and other teams, who want to find projects to
work on that the community really wants.
Come help set the agenda.
If you want to see what the team has done in 2017, see the status report

*) Vote. This is the most important thing.
*) Spread the word. We really want people to find this, of course, and
we'll work on finding the best balance between spreading the news to
everyone and not being annoying, but please do help to spread the
information in your local community – Village Pump equivalents, IRC
channels, social media groups and so on.
*) Help translating the pages. We want the process to be as available as
possible for everyone. It's not every available if it's only in English.
*) If you want to get short updates through the notification system, you
