Requests for comment

shortcut: RFC

Requests for Comments (RFC) are used by the Wikimedia Technical Committee to track technical decisions within the committee's scope that are strategic, cross-cutting, or hard to undo. Such decisions about software maintained by Wikimedia should follow the RFC process.

Other changes to MediaWiki (and other Wikimedia software), including bug fixes, optimizations, and documentation improvements, can be submitted to Gerrit and follow the normal code review process.

Active and Archived RFCsEdit

RFCs started in 2015 or later are tracked in Phabricator (list).

Older RfCs can be found in the Requests for comment category; for some easier-to-scan partial lists see here and here.
