Coordinating Across Stakeholders requires creating a Technology Council to oversee the process of developing new technical features. Many significant software changes are approached without consultation or communication, which often leads to negative reactions and suboptimal integration of the new tools. The Technology Council can be a central entity made up of Wikimedia Foundation staff and technical contributors from the communities. The Council would improve communication, discuss technical changes, and make decisions to approve or reject their implementation.
