Hi all,

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

* Announcement: Guidelines established by approved RFC Define criteria for
setting
explicit PHP support target for MediaWiki <
https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T228342>
are available at <https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Support_policy_for_PHP>.

* Last call: Core REST API namespace and version <
https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T232485>.
This RFC proposes a namespace and version policy for routes in the
MediaWiki REST API.

* Discussed: Section header "share" link <
https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T18691>.
This RFC aims to make it easier for readers to share links to sections on
wiki pages.

* Discussed: New Skin for Desktop Improvements Project
<https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T234907>. This RFC discusses the
approach for
implementing broad UI changes to the desktop interface of Wikimedia
projects.

* Discussed: Strategy for PHP interface changes <
https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T193613>.
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, see <https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Stable_Interface_Policy>.

* No IRC meeting next week.
