Following the strategic planning process

So if you follow any Wikimedia project or mailing list, you would be hard pressed not to have noticed that the strategic planning process has begun. The plan has several stages, and the current one includes collecting and discussing proposals. I made my first one yesterday: to implement OAuth in MediaWiki (following on from my post on Decentralising Wikimedia).

Anyway. That is not what I came to say. I was trying to think of how I could keep an eye on these proposals, without having to come each day and manually figure out what had been added. Then I remembered that Special:NewPages has a feed. And better yet, it can filter by namespace… and the proposal pages are all being created in their own namespace! woot.

So to subscribe to a feed of the new proposals, just follow one of these: RSS or Atom.

Now what you get is not very pretty looking, but it is better than nothing. There are 10 or more proposals a day at the moment.

Happy feed reading and strategising.
