Count me in.

I'll join after the "Mpas & Graphs" session.

We took over the Masada room. If we can take the food in rooms then let’s meet there.

General notes

  • André : We have been meaning to move data to Wikidata. WMSE has got funding to make it happen. How do we go from here
  • Strainu: Data is uneven (not necessarily a primary key etc) how will that happen?
  • Maarten & André : That will have to happen on a per-source basis.
  • Gabriel: At WMDE last year we supported WLM but without the Monuments Database. How does it work?
  • André & Maarten: *summarsie the workings of ErfgoedBot
  • André: We will be adding at least 10 new sources over the next year, from endangered
  • Gabriel : Presesntation of WMDE work
    • 1/ A bot to build lists of missing monuments
      • → Covered by Monuments DB
    • 2/ A bot to find “broken” lists: missings IDs, etc.
      • → Some of it might be covered by the Monuments DB, but rough around the edges in any case
    • 3/ Have Commons uploads to almost immediately appear on the lists: at the end of the upload, users could select which image to add to the list, or to replace the existing one
      • → A very nice feature. Definitely controversal, but countries could opt-out.
  • ...

Decisions:

  • Next Edition of WLM will NOT use the Wikidata backend for existing countries
  • New countries *should* also use lists
  • Monuments database maintenance level:
    • Operations: Making sure things run → OK, Jean-Fred & André as back-up
    • Development: Bug fixes and new features
      • → Maarten can chip-in some time ;
      • → André can allocate some staff time ;
      • → WMDE? Will not apparently?
      • → (Jean-Fred will focus on Ops)
    • New sources: Adding new sources/countries → ????
