You will record the following information, listed below, on the wiki page: https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/MediaWiki_Stakeholders%27_Group/Tasks/Feature_wishlist/NAME_OF_STUDENT
- If the feature requests are similar to the requests on the current list https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/MediaWiki_Stakeholders%27_Group/Tasks/Feature_wishlist, indicate that the feature requests are similar, the number of times they are mentioned, and the links of the individual messages that the new features are mentioned in MediaWiki-l or MediaWiki Support desk.
- If the new feature requests are not already mentioned in the above list, record the new feature requests, pain points, count, and links of the individual messages that the new features are mentioned in MediaWiki-l or MediaWiki Support desk.
- For example, if two individuals say that they want a similar feature request, then the count for that feature request is two. Provide a link for each individual message.
