From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki

Hi, I'm Taavi (he/him).

I'm a volunteer Wikimedia system administrator and a MediaWiki developer with +2 rights. As a Toolforge and Cloud VPS admin I'm doing behind-the-scenes work to provide free hosting infrastructure to Wikimedia-related software projects. I co-maintain the CentralAuth MediaWiki extension which currently powers the Wikimedia Unified Login system. In August 2022 I was awarded the Wikimedia Tech Contributor of the Year award.

I am also currently a Wikimedia Foundation contractor, for details see User:Taavi-WMF.

I work for or provide services to the Wikimedia Foundation, but this is my personal account. Edits, statements, or other contributions made from this account are my own, and may not reflect the views of the Foundation.

My account was named Majavah before it was renamed on June 20, 2022.
