Notes from January:

Wish #20, Create new Han Characters with IDS extension for Wikisource: The highest Wikisource wish. In order to work on this, we'll want to partner with some volunteers who know Chinese. We'll talk about it at the Dev Summit.

Wish #27, Notifications for when your image is used: Identified by Alex as helpful for GLAM, as part of a larger image tracking interface suggested in wish #123, "MediaChanges" feed to track pages where images are used.

Wish #34, Allow admins to hide names of users while blocking them: May fit in as part of CommTech's work on blocking tools.

Wish #40, "Hide trusted users" checkbox option on watchlists and related/recent changes (RC) pages: Possibility for recent changes patrollers.

Wish #44, DerivativeFX alternative: #1 wish for Commons.

Wish #52, Allow any language to be the source for translations in Meta: The highest Programs and events wish. This has already been done by TTO -- see phab:T153209.

Wish #57, Suggestions for WikiProjects to join: #2 for WikiProjects.

Wish #58, Enable administrators to update block logs: Helpful for admins and stewards. There was a spirited discussion on this wish, so we'll have to look at all the pros and cons.

Wish #61, Support Wikipedia Education Program courses on Programs & Events Dashboard: We're finishing up some Programs & Events Dashboard work in December. It's difficult having two different product teams working on the Dashboard at the same time (WikiEd's and Community Tech), and unfortunately, the code was written in languages that WMF developers generally aren't familiar with. It's unlikely that we'll do any work on this in 2017.

Wish #65, Implement Internet Archive BookReader in Commons & Wikisource: Possibility for Wikisource.

Wish #73, Upload Wikisource text wizard: Possibility for Wikisource.

Wish #83, Article tracking tool for Wikiprojects, edit-a-thons and other campaigns, based on Wikidata: Important for Programs and events.

Wish #97 Add "Insert Citation" to Visual Editor: Suggested on survey talk page as helpful for Wiktionary and Wikisource.

Wish #131, Enable on-wiki lift for account creation limit at a specific IP range: Important for program and campaign organizers.
