Abstract (at least 300 words to describe your proposal)

We are MediaWiki developers, admins, users, consultants, and hosting providers who cooperate in order to improve the software and advocate the needs of MediaWiki users outside the Wikimedia Foundation (WMF) and its projects. This includes communication and coordination among MediaWiki users, coordination between different groups of MediaWiki developers and operators, fostering the ecosystem around MediaWiki, facilitating the implementation of MediaWiki features, improving documentation of extensions and MediaWiki visibility, and contributing to the development of MediaWiki.

In this meetup, we will give a short overview of what we did so far and discuss our future actions. How can we best represent the interests of 3rd party users of MediaWiki? Come talk to us, work with us and join us at this meeting!
