Hello @Nuria! I am a new contributor to wikimedia and am Interested in helping build the analytics and ORES platform. Can you point me in the right direction in solving the task?

Probably @Aklapper can advice on a task that would be easier than this one as your first one

Aklapper added a subscriber: Milimetric.

@Milimetric: A good first task is a self-contained, non-controversial task with a clear approach. It should be well-described with pointers to help a completely new contributor. Given the current short task description I'm removing the good first task tag.

Hi and welcome @Chtnnh! Please take a look at which for example lists ORES - thanks!

@Nuria @Aklapper This is my third bug actually and this seemed to be the best task I could to find to work on apart from the good first tasks

@Chtnnh sorry, the label here was a mistake

Hm... isn't this task literally making two very simple files? One would be a list of country codes with the continent they belong to, and another would be a create table statement. Am I missing something @Nuria? The person taking the task wouldn't even have to deploy it, they'd just ask where to put the files, we'd tell them, code review and deploy with the train.

I propose that we decline this ticket as it is 8 years old and does not reference a specific use case. Any objections?
