MediaWiki Stakeholders' Group/Annual Report 2021

Focus AreasEdit

In 2021, we focused mainly on these areas:

  • Continuation and improvement of MediaWiki user experience. We are striving to keep user experience of MediaWiki as consistent and integrated as possible for self-installed MediaWiki instances (see output).
  • Outreach to relevant stakeholders. We have continued our efforts to reach out to MediaWiki maintainers by co-organizing conferences.
  • Exchange of experience among stakeholders, i.e. primarily people running MediaWiki as their platform. This was done in regular online meetings and through our discussion platform on Element.
  • Stabilization and continuity of MediaWiki experience. We actively maintain a number of MediaWiki extensions (see output).
