Stas and I just met to discuss how he can assist with search moving
forwards. Stas works on a lot of projects, so we wanted to guide and plan
his efforts together.
Given Stas's role as a technical liaison between the Wikidata and Search
teams, we started there. I mentioned how structured file metadata for
Commons is important for content discovery, given that it would potentially
enable us to do more with search on Commons by having access to structured
data. This was quite a popular item
on the community wishlist, where it was noted that the Wikidata Team would
be working on it. Discovery has some limited capacity to help with
architectural discussions, and Lydia and I have discussed helping in this
Stas is going to proceed with investigating T89733
<https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T89733> "Allow ContentHandler to
expose structured data to the search engine", which is a huuuuge task which
needs a bit more definition to be actionable. Stas is continuing to work on
the Wikidata Query Service and also (for this quarter) supporting the
Performance Team in some of their efforts.
If you have any questions, let me know!
Great. Thank you!
