Wikimedia Italia put in its budget 3000€ for Wikisource-related work.
When we discussed this, months ago, we thought about paying a developer for
the DJVU issue of the IA-Upload tool,
which then has been resolved by our beloved Sam Wilson.
The tool is still not perfect (I often get errors), so maybe some
development is still needed, but I'd ask you (especially technically
skilled people like Tpt, Sam, Philippe, etc.) if you think there is some
low-hanging fruit that could be reached with that kind of budget.
Of course, we will be looking for developers, so if you want to propose
yourself for something, please do! ;-)
Forwarding this to wikisource-l, as with Ernest we discussed many times
"globalising" some templates or features.
TLDR: If you are an experienced editor on any Wikimedia project in any
language, please add your ideas here:
In more detail:
Continuing some recent discussions from Phabricator, Wikimedia
Hackathon, and Wikimedia Developers Summit, I'd like to ask the wider
community of editors in all projects:
Which templates could be useful for all Wikimedia projects, or at least for
A lot of templates are replicated manually, and it's a problem that is
well-known to all experienced editors. If there was a technology that
allows templates to be more conveniently globally managed, which templates
would you adapt to this technology first?
I started a list at
https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Which_templates_should_be_global . Please
continue it! I'm very interested to hear from all projects and languages,
not only the big Wikipedias, so spread the word.

Unsure if you noticed that admins are now able to override Page status change limitations in ProofreadPage.
There is a discussion in phabricator:
about this feature if you care.
Recently I am finding a problem in Tamil wikisource. If I am not logged
in, then enchanced editor is appearing.

Once I log in with my user id : Balajijagadesh then the enhanced editing
tools is disappearing as below

It is a major discomfort to proof read without the enhanced editing
toolings. Any one faced similar problems? how to rectify it.
Thanks in advance,
cycle 2 for strategy is started.
The Wikimedia movement strategy core team and working groups have completed
reviewing the more than 1800 thematic statements we received from the first
discussion. They have identified 5 themes that were consistent across all
the conversations - each with their own set of sub-themes. These are not
the final themes, just an initial working draft of the core concepts.
This round of discussions will take place between now and June 12th. You
can discuss as many as you like; we ask you to participate in the ones that
are most (or least) important to you.
I think that, as an international community, it's important for us to give
our opinion on the themes proposed. They are:
* Healthy, Inclusive Communities
* The Augmented Age
* A Truly Global Movement
* The Most Respected Source of Knowledge
* Engaging in the Knowledge Ecosystem
I'm not sure if you want to discuss it here, on the mailing list, or you
prefer to set up pages on your local wikisource, or both. You can also go
and discuss directly on Meta¹.
I just set up the pages on it.source, and will (desperately) try to revamp
the discussion there.
If you need a hand in understanding what to do, please ask: the process is
complicated for everyone ;-)
