Subject: [Wikimediaindia-l] Announcing Indic Hackathon 2022 and Scholarship
We are happy to announce that the Indic MediaWiki Developers User Group
will be organizing Indic Hackathon 2022, a regional event as part of the
main hackathon taking place in a hybrid mode during 20-22 May 2022. The
event will take place in Hyderabad.
As we have mentioned in our previous email informing about the grant
proposal, the regional event will be in-person with support for virtual
participation. As it is with any hackathon, the event’s program will be
semi-structured i.e. while we will have some sessions in sync with the main
hackathon event, the rest of the time will be upto participants’ interest
on what issues they are interested to work on. The event page can be seen
In this regard, we would like to invite community members who would like to
attend in-person to fill out a form for scholarship applications by 17
April, which is available on the event page. Please note that the hackathon
won’t be focusing on training of new skills, and it is expected that
applications have some experience/knowledge contributing to technical areas
of the Wikimedia movement.
Please post on the event talk page

As you may already know, the annual Wikimedia Hackathon
<https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Wikimedia_Hackathon_2022> is happening this
year during 20-22 May. After two years of online version, this year it will
be in a hybrid, i.e. a remote event with local in-person meetups. We are
happy to inform you that we have applied for a rapid grant
to organize a local hackathon parallel of the global event.
Given the pandemic remains in the current and controllable state, with less
1% positivity, the local hackathon will be an in-person event with all
safety measures. Subject to the approval of the grant, we will open a call
for participation for interested technical contributors to apply for
scholarships to participate in this event.
The reason behind organizing an in-person event is, as the world is opening
up and COVID-19 under control, we felt that it would be a good time to host
an in-person event with limited participants, as permitted by the local
government. In the last two years, we realized that many things can be
organized online, however, certain components of in-person events such as
forming new connections, which are especially cross-community, and
post-event networking are often lacking in online events. So we would like
to see how this goes after almost two years of online events.
Looking forward to your participation.

Your friendly neighborhood Hackathon committee is thrilled to announce the
2022 Global Wikimedia Hackathon! We invite you to join us for three days of
collaborating, interactive sessions, and social fun from May 20-May 22. The
Hackathon will be held online and there will be grants available to support
local in-person meetups around the world. You can find more information
about this on our MediaWiki.org page
<https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Wikimedia_Hackathon_2022>, which will
continue to grow over the next few weeks. For more details, read below.
Who: The Hackathon is for anyone who contributes (or wants to contribute
to) to Wikimedia’s technical areas - as code creators, maintainers,
translators, designers, technical writers and other technical roles. You
can come with a project in mind, join an existing project, or create
something new with others. The choice is yours! Newcomers are welcome.
We will send out more information on how to schedule a session in the
program soon. You can also add yourself to the participants list
mention if you would like to help with tasks such as facilitation or
welcoming newcomers. There will be scholarship stipends available- please
stay tuned for more information.
What: A Wikimedia Hackathon <https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Hackathons> is
a space for the technical community to come together and work together on
technical projects, learn from each other, and make new friends.
When: May 20-May 22. The schedule will be announced shortly. We are trying
to plan events so that people in all time zones can participate
comfortably. There will be core hours several times a day when most events
will occur, and online social and hacking spaces open 24 hours a day
throughout the three days.
Where: The Hackathon will primarily be held online. However, very soon we
will share an application for local affiliates to apply for grants to host
in-person local meetups. Meetups can be anything from social gatherings
with food, to a party for watching the opening or closing ceremony, to a
pre-event workshop, to renting a venue where people can participate
together in the online event. Grants can range from 500-5000 USD. Stay
tuned for more information!
How (can you help)?:
We are seeking another committee member! The commitment is around 3
hours per week. If you are interested, please contact hlepp(a)wikimedia.org

Dear MediaWiki users/members,
I am writing to provide an update on the improvements to the MediaWiki
maintenance script documentation on Mediawiki.org, as well as to ask you to
fill out a survey that will help us to understand these improvements better.
Project Pralekhan  is a documentation project under which MediaWiki's
maintenance script documentation  is being improved. Under this project,
I have documented 134 scripts so far . Apart from this, the main landing
page for maintenance scripts  has been improved with a sidebar for
If you are a developer or admin involved in running and maintaining a
MediaWiki site, we kindly ask you to respond to this survey by 3 March 2022
Your response is highly appreciated. Your input plays a key role in the
analysis and recommendations to ensure more improvements to MediaWiki
Thank you and regards,
Technical writer, Project Pralekhan
I am happy to release pywikisource 0.0.4 version. This version has the
* Allow to add User-Agent in HTTP requests
* Refactor to introduce __getPageQueryParam method
* Refactor to introduce analyzeRevisions method
* Add async bookStatus method for parallel execution
There are three other minor commits as well. The major part of this version
is parallel execution. In the past versions, we make one request per
second. This was generating Wikisource stats very slowly. Now I have added
parallel execution which provides an option to increase the limit by 100
requests per second. Although for ethical reasons, I set the default limit
to 25 requests per second. But users can easily change the limit.
For usage and contribution,
Volunteer Developer, Wikimedia Community
