Space Progress Report - September 2019

This is our first Wikimedia Progress Report! In early September 2019, the Space team proposed a list of Success criteria for the Wikimedia Space prototype. In an effort of accountability and transparency we are going to publish a new report on a monthly basis, with a special version at the end of every quarter. Our main goal is to assess our progress toward the success criteria.

If you have any questions or suggestions, please comment below.


These metrics correspond to September 2019 unless specified otherwise. Given that this is the first report, we are sharing some metrics since June 5th, Wikimedia Space’s technical birth day (publicly announced on June 25th).
