Requesting a presentation on OOUI work[edit]

I would like to see a presentation on the OOUI work that answers "Who", "What", "When", "Where", "Why", and "How". The OOUI changes appear to be part of a long term project and I would like to understand it better than I do now. Thanks. --Pine 19:46, 13 September 2018 (UTC)

Just for clarity - we are not (at this time) going to be recruiting folks based on topics suggested. But if others are interested in presenting on a topic suggested, we are happy to work with them. :) --Gregory Varnum (Wikimedia Foundation) (talk) 03:00, 14 September 2018 (UTC)
