Hello Indic Wikisource proofreaders,
We are happy to announce that the Indic Wikisource Proofreadthon March 2022
 will be starting from tomorrow 01 March 2022 and will continue up to
16th March 2022.
We are also expecting higher participation than in previous contest.
We heartily welcome new Wikimedians from various parts of the country to
work on restoring our literary heritage to the digital era. Just like the
previous contest held in August 2020, we again promise to wrap up
everything within the expected timeline after the competition ends. We are
going to keep our promise again. :-)
Welcome you all to the contest.
Hello fellow Wikisource enthusiasts!
I hope you are all doing well and staying healthy. Sam Wilson and I are
excited to share that we will be hosting regular Wikisource Triage meetings
<https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikisource_Triage_meetings>, starting from
21st March 2022.
These meetings aim to foster the growth of a technical community of
Wikisource developers and contributors. The meetings will be primarily
focused on identifying, prioritizing and estimating tasks on the
workboards (among others) on Phabricator and eventually reduce the backlog
of technical tasks and bugs related to Wikisource by making incremental
improvements to Wikisource infrastructure and coordinating these changes
with the Wikisource communities.
While these meetings are technology focused, non-technical Wikisource
contributors are also invited to join and share any technical challenges
that they are facing and we will help them to create phabricator tickets.
Newbie developers are also more than welcome!
The first meeting has been scheduled for 21st March 2022 at 10:30 AM UTC /
4:00 PM IST (Check your local time
<https://zonestamp.toolforge.org/1647858641>). If you are interested in
joining the meeting, kindly leave a message on sgill(a)wikimedia.org and we
will add you to the calendar invite.
Meanwhile, feel free to check out the page on Meta-wiki
<https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikisource_Triage_meetings> and suggest
topics for the agenda.
