Software management tools
Wikimedia volunteers and other contributors may need some software management tools. This page is a stub trying to summarize a bit, using metrics of interest to volunteers. Every contribution is welcome.
Comparison of software management tools Edit
Here a comparison of software management tools available to Wikimedia volunteers:
|Public Tasks||Private Tasks||Kanban board||Useful for non-developers||Code hosting||FLOSS||Provided by WMF|
- Possibility to publish Tasks to users not already registered.
- Possibility to create private Tasks (e.g. requesting a private space for your own organization or project).
- Some platforms have dedicated tools for non-developers (e.g. for bug reporting or commenting on mockups). Others are definitely geared exclusively towards developers.
- Repositories are integrated in Wikimedia Phabricator. But note that Wikimedia Foundation uses Phabricator just for code mirroring.
- This row is about both GitLab.com, and GitLab community-edition self-hosted, but not Wikimedia GitLab.
- Gerrit is a code-review platform and it's normal that it's mainly participated by software developers. People who are not interested in the code usually do not visit this platform.
- This tool is not provided by Wikimedia Foundation but is adopted in at least one other Wikimedia chapter.
