About the feature
The RevisionSlider is a MediaWiki extension, developed bei Wikimedia
Deutschland’s Technical Wishes team. It adds a slider to the diff page that
allows to easily navigate through revisions. The feature got developed in
2016/2017, and is a default feature on all wikis since May 2017. 
About Season of RevisionSlider:
Implementing version 2.0
The work on a feature doesn’t stop in the moment it is deployed everywhere.
It needs to be maintained, and continuous user feedback helps identifying
new use cases that the feature could ideally address on top. We think it is
time for realizing version 2.0 of the feature: Including general
improvements and a few new features - for example, highlighting all edits
of the same user.
Why a Volunteer Dev team
Finding good tasks to work on, getting people to review your patches, or
just getting good advice can be very challenging. With *Season of
RevisionSlider* we want to provide the chance to experience all of this the
easy way - together with us :-)
How to join
We are looking for 4-5 people who would be interested to work as a
development team over a period of 2 months. The team will be supported by a
group of engineers, product management, design and communication. We
plan a *kick-off
meeting* via video call on *Thursday, August 2, 15:00 UTC* (so save the
date!), and will continue with weekly check-ins until end of September.
If you are interested, please let us know by July 26. Just subscribe to the
ticket & say Hi!
If you have any questions, please comment directly in the ticket.
We’re really looking forward to meeting you :-)
See you soon,
Birgit (for WMDE’s Technical Wishes Team)
* PHP basic skills and a basic understanding of CSS are nice to have, but
it can work without
