ODF/ODT was removed as part of the "OCG" project, see
You can still export the wikitext of the page and print it to ODF on a
wiki which uses the PediaPress plugin (mwlib). According to WikiApiary
there are about 700, perhaps one of these: http://ur1.ca/ol32i
It might be easier to just import the PDF into LibreOffice though...
Hi Wikitech Ambassadors,
I am a new hire of the Wikimedia Analytics team, it's nice to reach out to
you all for the first time!
I have to start with an apology since I missed to inform you about a rather
intrusive maintenance work to the servers the user sessions. I needed to
install the Debian Jessie OS on those servers, replacing Ubuntu Precise, as
part of one big infrastructure goal that we have. If you have experienced
issues with your session for brief amount of time during the past three
days (like 30 minutes at the time) it was probably due to me removing
servers from the available pool to work on them. I followed the least
impactful procedure but sadly I couldn't have avoided session loss.
Everything is tracked in https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T123711 for the
curious. I am planning to finish the bulk of the work tomorrow during EU
time, please feel free to reach out to me (elukey on IRC/Freenode) for any
question or to report any issue.
In the past, several community members have worked to enable Citoid on
their wiki <
https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Citoid/Enabling_Citoid_on_your_wiki> and to
get an easier referencing experience in the visual editor.
In order to create references from websites, Citoid heavily relies on
peculiar code, a.k.a. Zotero "translators" <
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zotero>; because of this, and because we want
to complement existing documentation about how to write them, we have
gladly accepted the offer of Sebastian Karcher, one of Zotero's main
contributors <http://www.sebastiankarcher.com/?page_id=33>, to host a
dedicated Tech Talk later this month.
Find all the details below. Huge thanks to User:Czar and Rachel F. for
making this happen.
Please spread the word among your communities!

Subject: Tech Talk: Automated citations in Wikipedia: Citoid and the
technology behind it: February 29th
To: Wikimedia developers <wikitech-l(a)lists.wikimedia.org>
Please join for the following tech talk:
*Tech Talk**:* Automated citations in Wikipedia: Citoid and the technology
*Presenter:* Sebastian Karcher (Syracuse University, Zotero)
*Date:* *February 29th, 2016*
*Time: **20:00 UTC*
*Length:* 1 hour
Link to live YouTube stream <http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ltEL-kPURKs>
