Hi Amir,

I plan to come. Maybe an additional topic: What to do to kill off the old branch? That way we can focus on one software package instead of two.

I was against killing the old branch because there are lots of people outside of WMF who are using compat (and can't use core because core is designed to work on WMF wikis) but I think it's better to stop developing (and keep compatibility) compat i.e. just important breaking changes needs to be taken care of, others don't.

What do you think about this?

Hello all,
Zürich Hackathon will be held in 9-11 May and It is a great
opportunity to improve pywikibot, I want to have presentation about
"how we can help pywikibot" and I want to discuss about bugs and
reporting and wrangling them (prioritizing and categorizing them) how
to make a patch in gerrit, etc. and about areas of development in
pywikibot including better support of Wikibase/Wikidata, other new
features (e.g. Flow) and network optimization for reducing pressure on
WMF servers

I probably can get the visa in time and if everything goes well I'll
have it by 16 April but maybe I'll not make it (if my request got
rejected by Swiss embassy which is not an uncommon thing)

This is the topics page:

There are several things that we need to discuss:
1-In case I can't come, is there someone else who is willing to have
this presentation?
2-if you'll come and you're interested please add your name there
3-if you think this presentation needs some changes and improve
(surely it does), please comment here
