Quim, thanks for sharing. This feels like a project where going part-way and stopping could make things more confusing, but seriously embracing the challenge of integrating the strengths of discourse and wikis, and ensuring the result helps streamline and integrate and improve communication, could be excellent -- and well received / used by more people than just us.
+ Automatic translation of discussions is essential, tangibly useful for our communities, and very satisfying.
--> how can we bring this to Mediawiki? This is a core question for community health, movement development, and tech. It is a straightforward concept, not exclusive to Discourse, and we should learn from it.
+ Forum threading and features (tags, emotes) are nice, beloved by some. This is the third attempt to start a WM-related discourse.
--> how might we support integrating discourse into a) mediawiki, b) interwiki links? (so that a forum post could link to m:Power_structure, and a meta post could link to f:Wikischool)
– Wikimedia Space was closed after a year, and its links no longer resolve.
--> how can we add discourse into current versioning + archiving workflows?
I would appreciate it if reports on this Forum could explicitly address
~ how & why Space was closed, and implications for the approach here,
~ how to keep links to Space discussions working/redirecting appropriately, and implications for how to ensure the same linkrot doesn't happen here,
~ how conversations there & on the Meta Forum
& on other evergreen pages on Meta are intended to be kept in synch, for both short-term discussions (like rfcs) and long-term strategizing (like a page describing the history and state of an initiative)
