Wikimedia Product/Component responsibility

This page does not as extensively cover component inventory as Developers/Maintainers, but includes SLAs for a number of software components and includes some service endpoints and additional detail on native apps.

Following below is a list of some components/extensions we believe currently fall under Wikimedia Product for triage (n.b., not all extensions will get active development support). Feel free to add discussion topics to the discussion page.

NotesEdit

  • For skins with low utilization, in time there should be an engineering community discussion about practical approaches for EOL. Development on "legacy" skins (i.e., not Vector and not Blueprint) is generally inactive.
  • Extension:Collection is bugfix maintained by cscott, but Readers Web and Product Infrastructure have decommissioned some pieces and are taking on support.
