Software feature request group


This page is devoted to discussing, prioritizing, and organizing software feature requests, primarily for the MediaWiki platform, but also for any software related to the development and distribution of the Wikimedia projects.

Sources for requestsEdit

  • Bugzilla¬†: many feature requests are first added here. All feature requests related to MediaWiki code or particular Wikimedia sites should be added to Bugzilla if they are not there already. Be sure to link from any feature request names to the relevant Bugzilla entries.
  • Mailing-list posts
  • Village-pump posts, other wiki pages


Classification, feature clustersEdit

Bugzilla only allows limited types of classification; and only one category per bug. Please identify natural feature clusters (both vertical and horizontal) and dependencies here.

PrioritiesEdit

Please list what you see as the top feature priorities, and explain your metrics for importance.

Interested membersEdit

Many people interested in feature requests are not aware of this group, and simply organize the Bugzilla submissions as best they can. You might want to check the bugzilla activity logs and ping its users for input.
