I would appreciate any help for a small javscript developement:
This is a feature request gathering many small improvements which should
be done on http://www.kiwix.org/m/, a download page which is proposed to
Android users to download contents.
Here is the list of improvements:
-- Replace "Kiwix ZIM Contents" and "Content Downloads Filter" with only
one title like "Download content for Kiwix"
-- Remove "Content Type" select box (we don't have enough content for
now to justify such type of filtering)
-- "Language" selectbox should be automatically filled with the list of
languages available at http://www.kiwix.org/wiki/Template:ZIMdumps
-- "Language" select box entry "Auto-detect" should be removed and
autodetect should be applied at loading base on browser agent language
-- Replace "Download Link" label by "Download method"
-- Replace "Download link" select box by two radio buttons-- Remove
"Filter button", each change on "Download method" or "Language" should
automatically apply the filter and reload the results
-- Block the page during each loading of the result (modal dialog box)
or darken the whole page
-- Make the filtering working for all languages, "Hindi" for example
does not work.

Google Code-In is a contest to introduce pre-university students (ages
13-17) to the many kinds of contributions that make open source software
development possible. Students must complete tasks, one at a time. The
Google Code-in 2013 contest runs from November 18, 2013 to January 6, 2014.
Do you have small tasks sitting in your backlogs? For instance (and
pointing to the Kiwix project), we have been told that Android
applications is an area where a lot of contributions from skilled
students are almost granted.
What do you think?
We are currently preparing the proposal to apply by Oct 28, next Monday.
If you can add at least 5 tasks to the wiki page linked above then you
will be ready for the next level - if we are one of the organizations
selected on November 1.
If you have questions just ask, here or at the related talk page.

Subject: Wikipedia for Schools new version
I'm emailing you today because you've expressed interest in Wikipedia for
Schools in the past. Please forgive me if I've already been in touch
individually - I'm emailing to the full mailing list today.
I'm very excited to announce that we've just updated Schools Wikipedia for
2013. The new version is much expanded, containing roughly 6000 articles,
50,000 images and consisting of 26 million words! And although it's still
organised around the UK national curriculum, and still hand-checked for
suitability, it boasts a brand new look which we're really rather proud of.
There are two ways you can access it:
- Browse the online version <http://schools-wikipedia.org/>
- Alternatively, you can download a
You can also find more information about the project, including its purpose
and history, here <http://www.sos-schools.org/wikipedia-for-schools> on our
If anyone has anything nice to say - about this version or a previous
edition - that we can quote in press, I'd be really grateful - as much or
as little as you have time for.
Please do pass circulate this email to anyone you feel may benefit. And, of
course, if you have any questions whatsoever, please don't hesitate to
A loving home for every child
