Hi all,

Here are the minutes from this week's TechCom meeting:

* Discussed: Strategy for PHP interface changes <>.
This RFC proposes policies and strategies to mitigate problems arising from
the need to change
PHP interfaces that are implemented by classes defined by extensions. In
particular, it proposes
a separate policy that defines the stable interface for use by extensions,

* Discussed: Reconsider how we run QUnit unit tests <>.
This RFC proposes restructuring unit tests away from using QUnit.

* Discussed: Serve Main Page of WMF wikis from a consistent URL
<>. This RFC proposes serving a
wiki’s main page
from the domain root. The configuration option has been merged as disabled
by default, and
the RFC is ready for discussion with stakeholders.

* Discussed: Need to clarify consequences of approved RFC Define criteria

PHP support target for MediaWiki <>.
