  1. WMStake is now recognized as a non-profit
    • (Mark) Our approval from the IRS finally came through.
    • (Mark) Working to implement a merchant services account so we can start taking money (membership dues, sponsorship, seed funding, etc.) through the website.
    • (Cindy) Now that MWStake has non-profit status, what project would be good to tackle? Should be linked to the MWStake Phabricator board.
    • ACTION ITEM (Mark) Let's talk about this during the next meeting.
  2. RFC for Composer
    • (Mark) General idea of extension download or provisioning using composer.
    • (Mark) 1/2 of the widely used extension are available via download using composer, but the RFC makes this the official way.
    • (Gergo) Extensions are deeply integrated into MW & easy to break things.
    • (Cindy) Couple of different aspects. Extensions dependent on MW Core version, i.e. Chameleon → Bootstrap → SCSS.
    • (Markus) Auto-enable by composer probably isn't a good idea, this is agreed by all but SMW.
    • (Mark) Ideally we can include these discussion points on the RFC.
    • (Markus) I was planning on adding to the RFC but as people know, Robert & I are on the same page about this.
    • (Cindy) Since the WMF doesn't use Composer but doesn't use another option and many extension developers have been using Composer, they have created an infrastructure/process that works.
    • (Mark) Could use Composer to find issues, throw warnings, & download files.
    • (Cindy) I assume Composer has the hooks to do this?
    • (Mark & Gergo) Yes, Composer has the ability to have hooks.
  3. PHP Conference
    • (Mark) Some people think we should be involved in the wider PHP community, here's an opportunity
    • (Gergo) That conference costs 300 Euros
  4. Guided Tour Extension
    • (Vince) I've been investigating the Guided Tour extension, seems like a good way to sell people on the "wiki way"
    • ACTION ITEM (Vince) Is willing to show what he's learned during the next mwstake meeting
  5. MW Stability
    • (Cindy) There is a proposal for MW stability for putting annotation on elements of code to let extension developers know the change of change. Daniel Kinzler wrote the proposal.
