Dear tech ambassadors,
According to our plans, we are just a few weeks away from Wikimedia
Phabricator Day 1. On that day, Bugzilla will be accessible in read-only
mode, and all the bug reports will have been migrated to Phabricator. From
that point, all bug reporting will be done in Phabricator.
We are very excited about this move. Phabricator provides a friendlier
environment to new/casual users while offering a powerful collaboration
platform for software development and project management in general -- all
at once! For instance, users can edit task descriptions, one task can be
assigned to more than one project (or none), and tasks can be organized in
project workboards (i.e. http://fab.wmflabs.org/project/board/31/
Learn about the launch at http://fab.wmflabs.org/T282
. You can subscribe to
this task to receive any updates.
This Day 1 is also relevant for other migrations (RT, Trello, Mingle, even
Gerrit at some point) but first of all we want to make sure that the
Bugzilla migration is well communicated and understood across all Wikimedia
projects. For that, we need your help.
We are planning the communication activities at http://fab.wmflabs.org/T317
-- feedback and volunteers are welcome.

As always, we welcome your questions and feedback.
