Abstract Wikipedia/Organization

From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki

This is part of the Wikilambda development plan.
Continues from Wikilambda goals.

We assume a core team, employed by a single hosting organization, that will work exclusively on Wikilambda and Abstract Wikipedia. It will be supported by other departments of the hosting organization, such as HR, legal, etc.

The team will explicitly be set up to be open and welcoming to external contributions to the code base. These may be volunteers or paid (e.g. through grants to movement bodies or by other organizations or companies). We aim to offer volunteers preferred treatment in order to increase the chances of creating the healthy volunteer communities that we need for a project of such ambition.

The project will be developed in the open. Communication channels of the team will be public as far as possible. Communication guidelines will be public. This will help with creating a development team that communicates publicly and that allows to integrate external contributions to the code base.

Continued in Wikilambda requirements.
