This would also be an opportunity to better organize the content, update outdated pages and retire obsolete ones.

Proposed organizationEdit

  1. Everything is imported under Wikimedia Mobile engineering/imported.   Done
  2. The pages are then moved under Wikimedia Mobile engineering, Wikimedia Apps or a more specific page.   Done
  3. The content of m:Mobile is merged into Wikimedia Mobile engineering, and the various facets are highlighed (What is it, Mobile web, Apps & Partners)

We can use LST to avoid duplicating content, while still being able to present it differently (example).
