Another survey! The WMF is hosting a survey to help better understand how folks are using Wikipedia's data. From the announcement:

"Dear Wikipedia data/API user,

The WMF’s Engineering, Product and Partnerships teams are conducting a short survey to help us understand how organizations are pulling and using data from our projects. This information will inform future features and improvements to our data tools and APIs.

We would appreciate a few minutes of your time. The link to the Survey below will take you to a Google Form - there is no need to sign up to fill out the survey. The survey should take no more than 10 minutes.

Thank you for your input and feedback!"

This is yet another great opportunity for you to influence tools and services that may have an impact on MediaWiki - especially around API and extracting data from wikis!
