I am interested in a GSoC 2014 project with the Wikimedia Foudation
The project aims at solving a few critical bugs in the Mediawiki Translate
extension and making it much more efficient and better.
These are the bugs included in the project. Please tell if you have any
1-Having the page title optionally selected for translation. In a few
cases, the title mightn't be relevant and it shouldn't be translated.
2-This is a bug with core. Requirement to set the content language while
creating a page.
3-The translated page isn't updated when a translation unit page is moved
4-Redesign of interface of the extension on pages and the language bar.
5-Changes in Special:AggregateGroups-Currently, it is not possible to
change an aggregate group description or group name on
Special:AggregateGroups. Also, the page should have a read-only output for
users with insufficient permissions.
Please check-out the detailed explanation of these bugs and aimed
I would really appreciate some feedback.
