Hi, this is a heads up about the Wikimedia Developer Summit 2017. We want
to open the scope and participation of this event, bringing it closer to
i.e. volunteer developers and other technical contributors (like you)
active in Wikimedia communities but perhaps not so much in the
/ wikitech-l groups. One important step is to assure that the
main topics of the Summit reflect better the priorities of these audiences.
Your participation is welcomed!

Rachel and I have decided to make a soft-launch of the Summit by opening
the registration and travel sponsorship requests only, because we cannot
keep postponing this step. You should hear news from us tomorrow.

the Summit widely in Wikimedia channels and beyond hopefully next week,
when we have a "good enough" list of main topics.
