Communication Infrastructure[edit]

Mailing list[edit]

For the coordination within the international team, a mailing list is being used. If you are interested in joining, please get in touch with beat.estermann﹫ Alternatively, you can also sign up yourself and shortly introduce yourself to the other list members.

Collaboration Platform[edit]

The coordination portal at the Wikimedia Outreach Wiki serves as a collaboration platform; Google Docs are used on a complementary basis (synchronous collaborative editing; easier editing, especially for tables).
