> Greetings everyone,
> Wikimedia Foundation’s community liaisons
> <https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Community_Liaisons> want to continue
> improving the collaboration between WMF software development teams and our
> communities. We want to include more and more diverse people to work
> together in friendly environments. For this goal, tech ambassadors and tech
> translators play a crucial role. How can we support them (you!) better?
> We would like to strengthen the roles of tech ambassadors and tech
> translators. Make these roles more visible to new potential volunteers,
> more enjoyable to contribute to, and more recognized across the Wikimedia
> For this reason, we are calling current and prospective contributors to
> help us define not only a solid definition of the roles, but also related
> metrics that we will adopt as part of our Key Performance Indicators. We
> will also explore pain points and opportunities for improvement in the
> workflow of these roles. This activity has already started with a review of
> Tech News as a way to effectively disseminate technical information, and
> will continue with a review of other major product newsletters, among other
> We are sharing a draft of role definitions and KPIs. Of course, the end
> result might be much different, depending on your input!
