You're awesome. I was just reflecting on wikimania and thought of you. I hope you remember me(this is Lucian). In case you're wondering I'm working on wikipedia timeline visualizer that I'm planning to bring to the hackathon in January.

Hi, at the "Today's articles for improvement" Nominations page I see you have shown "support" for the improving of the article Maalavika Manoj. Anyone who places the "support" tag there, seeks to improve the article. Is that what you meant? Please reply to me here.

Hi Sumana, this document directed me here. I have asked for user experience design review two weeks ago. But I got no response from Howief. Can you poke him?

Qgil-WMF (talkcontribs)

Why not sharing your work at the Design mailing list? You can find there all the experts, including the WMF UX designers.

I am new in creating extensions for deployment. So I merely followed Writing an extension for deployment. Thanks for advise.

Qgil-WMF (talkcontribs)

There is no question that you did the steps as suggested!

Seeing what happened to you (and may have happened to others) it is probably better to have a process not relying on single people. The creation of the Design list is more recent that the note about Howie at that page, and now it's probably just a better destination. Sumana, do you agree? I will also check with the Design list itself so they are aware of this possibility.

Bouron, thank you very much not only for contributing an extension to the MediaWiki community, but also to help us improving our processes.

Hi Sumana, I'm a developer and a Wikipedian (from I want to work with WikipediaMobile but instead using PhoneGap I'm more into conventional Eclipse IDE. So, where can I get code?

Qgil-WMF (talkcontribs)

Hi, please have a look at meta:Mobile_Projects/Contribute. There you can find links to the mobile apps source code, open bugs and other interesting information.

PhoneGap and Eclipse are orthogonal - see e.g. Getting started with PhoneGap in Eclipse for Android. As long as you are familiar with Javascript you are good to go.

The next steps for getting involved is joining #wikimedia-mobileconnect IRC channel and mobile-l mailing list. There you can find the other mobile developers and get further advice from them.

Thanks Qgil. I appreciate your taking the time to help. However, I figured it out by myself but other links you have provided are really helping. I guess I have to revise JavaScript as I'm mainly a Java programmer. I'm also a white box tester (usually work with JUNIT), how can I get involved?

Qgil-WMF (talkcontribs)

The only MediaWiki corners I'm aware of where Java is used are:

  • the Wikipedia app for Nokia Series40 (but the development is quite outsourced and even if open I wonder how easy is for external contributors to get in).
  • the Lucene search library. fwiw we have an open full time position related to this. Interested? :) Otherwise feel free forwarding to your colleagues.

You could help us get Gerrit, our source code review system, more in line with our needs -- the list of open Gerrit issues upstream and our open Git/Gerrit bugs in Bugzilla would be good places to start. In our 24/7 chat channel, you can get more interactive suggestions!

Sumanah, thanks' a lot for your interest (wp:en:User_talk:Yug#Mappers: software needs). The map and illustatrive sides of articles should indeed move to a more professional approach with comprehensive guidelines and sustainable, updatable allowed by centralized cloud technologies such as google-map. I'm currently finishing my master thesis of Chinese teaching, I will make a push and proposals to the WMF this summer. Best regards, Yug 10:12, 17 June 2012 (UTC)

Sumanah (talkcontribs)

Thanks, Yug. I hope to see your requests in Bugzilla and on the wikitech-l mailing list once you're done with your thesis. Best wishes for the success of your research and studies!

Qgil-WMF (talkcontribs)
Hi Yug, I was wondering whether you have shared your ideas at the maps-l list? Let me know if there is anything I can do to help. I work with Sumana at the WMF trying to make happy contributors like you.  :).

Missing i18n: identification of “need to translate” strings

Nemo bis (talkcontribs)

From a very proprietary point of view, this thesis mentions: «If source code is available, tools and techniques, with varying quality of internationalization, can be used to internationalize an existing monolingual product that minimize costs and improve

efficiency. This includes the use of lexical analysis as shown by Peng et al., automated

identification of “need to translate” strings as shown by Wang et al., and the use of tools like GNU Gettext. See 4.4.5 and 4.5 for details.»

Hi Sumanah! I already requested SVN access some time ago. However, I have problems checking out (getting a "server sent: publickey" response from the server). The account should be set up since I've already submitted my public key. I also see myself on the public list of users. It might be also be some Windows issue that I'm not aware of. I'm using TortoiseSVN and Pageant for my keys. Any help is welcome. Thanks!

Sharihareswara (WMF) (talkcontribs)

Hi, Edinwiki. Are you still having this problem? I don't use Windows myself so I won't be very good at helping you, sadly. You might be able to get better help from other Windows users in IRC. Good luck!

Wow! Laboratory tour!

On Tuesday January 15 at 3pm Wikipedians are invited to join a tour of laboratories at in . If you would like to attend please RSVP at . If you have questions feel free to ask on that page or contact me on my talk page or by my office phone at 914.378.2684.

I am still working on that project I wanted to show you. Also, I have not made it to the Museum of the Moving Image and I still want to do that someday. It seems that neither of those things will be done soon - I am going to India for a month starting next week to meet Wikipedians there and in Bangladesh. You are welcome to come to this Consumer Reports thing if you like; it is a long way from Queens. I hope you are well.
