Jon Udell has a pretty excellent exploration of the actual creation and
revision cycle of an article. I found it fascinating to actually watch a
breakdown of how an article evolves over time.
Me([[User:Notnarayan]]) and a friend ([[User:Yuvipanda]])) have been
working on a Signpost android app in our spare time.This app lets you
access Wikipedia Signpost from a mobile device in a nice and
(hopefully) beautiful way. Today, an RC1 of the version 1 of this app
has been released. You can download it at
As of today, the app would allow you to
1. Load current issue of the Signpost
2. Browse through and load any previous issue of the Signpost
3. Beautiful Image based display of each signpost issue
4. Articles are formatted easily for viewing on your mobile device
5. Sharing of articles from the app
A working draft of the mockups, rationale and current screenshots have
been documented and we hope to get it to the state shown in the
mockups over a period of time.
Please do test it out on your device, and report issues either at the
github url or by replying to this email.
Looking forward to some feedback,
I have been modifying the Agora Less stylesheet to include: gray (normal)
buttons which where lacking, and disabled versions for all colors.
The result can be seen in this example page:
I have pushed the changes to GitHub in the following pull request:
Although I tried to use git-flow as it was suggested in the documentation,
I ended up using plain git commands to submit the changes since I was not
aware of the git-flow command to download an existing remote branch and
All information I found on git-flow was about creating new branches from
scratch, not on how to improve work from others. It would be great to have
some command examples illustrating this in the repository documentation.

Just wanted to pass this along.
It's a somewhat unfair comparison since the old design screenshot was taken
from an original iPad and the new design screenshot was taken from an iPad
3. But wanted to pass along anyway.
