Unsorted, brainstorming, etc edit

  • Auditing tool expansion to include GC as well as auto-insert missing trxns
  • Documentation
    • Thorough overview of DonationInterface
    • Thorough overview of CentralNotice
    • Thorough overview of one-off scripts (queue handling, random mailing scripts)
    • Thorough overview of CiviCRM and our modules
    • Review and update tutorials on getting things set up to do fundraising development
    • Update architectural and logical diagrams of the pipeline
    • Improved documentation about operations-oriented things
      • Systems in the pipeline
      • privilege levels, access, etc.
  • CiviCRM enhancements/debugging/upgrade
  • Improved error handling in DI
  • Developing a WMF fundraising code library to standardize messaging formats, communication protocols, etc. (Eg a library for communicating with GlobalCollect, standardizing the Stomp library, constructing a standard messaging format for trxns to be used anywhere) This library or libraries should be platform independent - eg usable in CiviCRM, MediaWiki or something else.
  • Come up with emergency response plans
  • Bot to purge landing page templates
