Office hours[edit]

The Wikidata and Wikibase office hours are online events where the development team present what they have been working on over the past quarter, and the community is welcome to ask questions and discuss important issues related to the development of Wikidata and Wikibase.

They are announced on the Wikidata mailing list and in the Weekly Summary.

Wikidata bug triage hour[edit]

The bug triage hour is an online event where the product manager of Wikidata publicly works on triaging development tasks (typically on Phabricator), improving their descriptions, defining their priority, and collecting the wishes and needs from the Wikidata community. This experiment is part of the improvements on the support process, starting in February 2021.

The event is open to anyone who is interested in the development of Wikidata. When joining the event, the participants commit on following the Code of Conduct for technical spaces.
