Is this also the appropriate place
and is this the appropriate time to start proposing focus
The details of the call for participation are being discussed at
We need to confirm that we use Phabricator to propose tasks, as we did for
the MediaWiki Developer Summit. I think it is better than the former
wiki-based process, as it integrates better with related work, and it
allows for clearer ownership and status, granular subscriptions, and better
There is no reason to stop anyone from proposing activities now. We still
need to decide whether we have main themes to be pushed beforehand,
though.Also, this is a hackathon, pre-filling the schedule is not a goal
Is there already a theme/scope defined for
project ideas (eg I see a column on the workboard
entitled 'New forms of
editing hack ideas' - is that the general hackathon theme)?
No, and I edited the workboard to avoid confusion. The goals of the
hackathon (including main themes) need to be agreed at
Needless to say, this is your hackathon. If you have a theme or an activity
you want to push, push for it now.
