There have been community/affiliate led efforts in the past that focus on
Wikimedia technology and also on building thematic or regional hubs.
For instance, the OpenRefine Project Grant:
And the Language Hub grant:
I was wondering if Wikisource Community User Group can put up a grant
focusing on Wikisource technology and if there is a possibility for one or
more affiliates to support as fiscal sponsor(s) on this project. The grant
can focus on coordinating among Wikisource communities for prioritization
of technical long standing tasks along with new featurss and hiring a
couple of developers to work on them.
Looking forward to the members of the User Group and interested Wikimedia
affiliates for any thoughts and interest in this topic.
P.S. This topic was briefly discussed on the Telegram group and it was
suggested to move it here.
