We're waiting on some MediaWiki development work for this. I think
Chris Steipp and Roan Kattouw would probably know more.
Marc Laporte of TikiWiki and some other folks are doing a push to
revitalize the SVG-Edit project; we're going to have a conference call on
December 4, 2012:
This would be a great opportunity to bring up any potential issues that are
blocking integration of SVG-Edit into MediaWiki and bringing it to
production on Wikipedia sites.
Here's the current SVGEdit extension for MediaWiki:
Some sample issues:
* safe round-tripping when editing existing files (automate some
* i18n/l10n overhaul (there are localized UI strings, but needs love.
Consider setting up on TranslateWiki?)
* UI customizability (can/should we adjust the UI to fit the surrounding
SVG-Edit is pretty much all client-side goodies, so on our end the main
technical thing that needs doing before we can start actually testing it
'for reals' on production infrastructure is:
* CORS support for upload.wikimedia.org <
I know there's also some interest from the author of the TranslateSvg
extension in SVG-Edit, there may be some other folks interested. :)
My phone's homepage is set to https://en.wikipedia.org/ . Yesterday I noticed
for the first time that the redirect to the mobile site sends you to

to begin with.
I'm not sure if this is the right list for this (as I'm not on any other lists,
so I don't know their culture and scopes as well), but I believe that it is on

I am very happy to announce that tomorrow is Quim Gil's first day in the
Engineering Community Team of the Wikimedia Foundation. His title is
Technical Contributor Coordinator (IT Communications Manager) which
means that he'll be reaching out to and nurturing our testers, coders,
documenters, product managers, sysadmins, and other contributors to
Wikimedia technologies like MediaWiki. His blog entry about coming to
Quim is a contributor to Catalan Wikisource & Wikipedia and English
Wikipedia (User:Qgil), and has helped Wikimedia's mobile team as a
volunteer. Most recently he's dug into statistical analysis of
MediaWiki's coder community and the philosophical conundrum of
RESOLVED:LATER. You might also know him from his activity in the worlds
of GNOME, Qt, and Maemo -- he's coming to us from Nokia. If I try to
detail all the consulting, event-running, volunteer recruiting, open
source community management, writing, and projects he's done, I'll hit
some kind of mailman limit so I won't try. :-)
Quim lives in the Bay Area and will be working out of the San Francisco
office while reporting to me remotely, which is kind of hilarious. In
the near future he'll be encouraging volunteer testers and running our
Outreach Program for Women.
And tomorrow is Quim's birthday! So, happy birthday and welcome, Quim!

after struggling for quite some time on how to best work with the wikimedia gerrit site, i have created a page that i’m hoping will add some clarity for myself and others. while the documentation that already exists is helpful, i still found it difficult to understand, so i have done my best to summarize what i discovered and write the documentation from the point of view of someone who is more familiar a git workflow.
if you have a moment, please take a look and edit or contribute to the page where necessary as i am definitely not a gerrit expert.
with kind regards,
I found that on Gujarati Wikipedia there is no page view statistic. So please enable that features and also give us data of How many hits per day or per month on Gujarati Wikipedia.
Thanks in advance
