I think finding TEI equivalent of Wikisource templates is a great idea. I
am willing to mentor
but during the initial stages of the program my end-semester exams overlap
with the program.
Also, I haven't written any Lua modules for Wikisource before but I can
manage that. Is anyone
else interested in mentoring?

I think it is a good idea to start with the Author template, maybe you
could post it in the Mediawiki page for the Google Code-in?
Another thing that also could be interesting is to find the equivalent of
wikisource templates as TEI tags.
Will you be mentoring?

It is a contest and tasks are rated separately. Since, this would be the
time most of the contestants would be coding something in FOSS and would
have relatively less expertise,
the projects are supposed to small. I would be really glad if one of the
contestants from Wikimedia, works
on a Wikisource related task.
mentions that there are some templates which are common to
a few Wikisources, but have been developed independently.
I understand that the reason is dependency on other templates, which
follow different development routines.
In my opinion, templates that serve the same purpose on various
Wikisources can be just one module,
instead of several implementations, as is the current situation. Although
I am not aware of all the templates
that are used on various Wikisources,
I would suggest that a common template be used for displaying the author
boxes on author pages. The
design need not be the same but the backend can be shared.
1. Deciding an optimal design of the template so that it works properly
on all Wikisources/
2. Making sure the new template does not break any template that was
initially dependent on the author template.
In my opinion, point 3 would be the most notorious of all the challenges
to be handled.
It would be great if someone from each Wikisource could tell how other
templates are dependent on
the "author" template. It might be a bit overwhelming for a newcomer, so
I would prefer doing the standardisation
of templates for the Wikisources, for which there are least dependencies
on the author template
I would like feedback from the community on the idea before I propose it
on the code-in page.
