  1. 2021 key goals to focus on
    1. MWStake Membership
      • Credit Card processing for all options (individual, corporate, donations, conference tickets, etc.)
      • Acquiring new members
      • Acquiring new sponsors
    2. Project Canasta/MediaWiki Open Source Content Services Platform (MOSCoSP)
      • Agreeing on a direction and supporting it
    3. Conference Participation
      • Taking on more responsibility for planning
    4. MWStake "Machinery/Processes"
      • Board Membership
      • Member (individual) voting
    5. Social Media Outreach
      • Handling the MWStake Twitter account
      • Promoting conferences
  2. Eric-Jan Eric-Jan's email
    • To me a strategy is no more (or less) than a plan of action to achieve our long-term goals. These goals should be defined and are consistent with our mission and vision. So, step 1 is to define long-term goals and step 2 is the plan how to achieve these goals. The plan comes down to: Who does what and when should it be ready.
    • As far as strategy and goals are concerned, last year we have been mainly focusing on facilitating MediaWiki Stakeholder membership. This should be finalized by a working payment system and by getting new members on board. The acquisition plan to find members was adopted in April 2020.
    • There are 2 current initiatives that require to determine our position and role on the strategic agenda:
      1. Project Canasta
      2. MediaWiki Open Source Content Services Platform (MOSCoSP)
    • We could revitalize and review our workboard as potential input for our goals.
    • What’s our position to conferences as the recently held SMWCon Fall 2020 and the scheduled EMWCon Spring 2021?
    • To summarize for today’s agenda I would propose to discuss the long-term goals and the linked plan as concrete deliverables.
  3. Project Canasta/MediaWiki Open Source Content Services Platform (MOSCoSP)
    • Markus We (MWStake) are good at coordination, we can help with that
    • Markus We could try to bring the 2 efforts together and acta as a hub to bring people together
    • Cindy I agree, the worst possible outcome is to have both efforts split into two competing ideas.
    • Cindy We can ease the demands & provide a bridge.
    • Cindy Help connect each effort with community & experts
    • Mark It seems we are in agreement, this meets with our strategic plan. What's the next step?
    • Eric-Jan Someone needs to understand each goal & determine what is complimentary & unique so that both efforts can align and support the stakeholder needs, then work to accelerate them.
    • Lex What is the status of MOSCoSP?
    • Eric-Jan Between Wikibase Solutions and Hallo Welt!, we have 40 developers working in this.
    • Mark I hate the name (MOSCoSP), propose "MediaWiki Open Source COntent services Workshop" (MOSCOW)
    • Cindy MOSCoSP is enchancing MW to be ready for an Open Source Content Services platform
    • Cindy Canasta is more about the process (PX) to handle the transfer/download/install of the packages
  4. Marketing
    • Eric-Jan Another goal is to have MediaWiki on Gartner's "Magic Quadrant" for a Content Services Platforms (CSPs)
    • Bryan I've discussed Gartner's Magic Quadrants before, the key insight I had was that it's "vendors" that show up, not software. The vendors usually need to surpass some revenue (i.e. $20 Million Annual Recurring Revenue)
