How could they improve attribution?
What Phoebe said. A link to each history page *might* be enough but,
especially if they're ebooks, a full list of names costs little (even
though it can be ugly).
What download formats or APIs would we like to see to
to Wikibooks, or better cross-platform collaboration?
Making books or ebooks out of wiki pages is not a trivial task. If a
publisher does so for us, fantastic! Even just giving "us", i.e. the
public, a copy of said ebooks in a free format, for free, would be a
gain. For instance, they could just upload them all as ePub on
. Then, if they have a continuous production and update,
Wikibooks could establish some interlinking, telling users that there is
an ebook version at X.
Is anyone on wikibooks currently working on importing
in Tamil or English or other languages?
Do they have any original content? In that case it would be nice if
their "fork" shared the sources with us, so that the content can be
remixed. I doubt they use wikitext and at least for some time we won't
have an integrated HTML import in MediaWiki, but having TeX or DocBook
sources, or whatever, would be great.
