Present and discuss the Commonists Org program evaluation tools to WMF stakeholders
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Over the past years, @PierreSelim, @Lena and me (under the Commonists org barnstar) have worked on tools for analysing collections of media on Wikimedia Commons, program evaluation, etc.

This includes wm-metrics, which also has a Web interface on ToolLabs, its deep backend rewrite MediaCollectionDB, and SurfaceImageContentGap

See T100088, T100710 for background information.

We should discuss whether work on these tools still make sense or we should discontinue them. Cc @Abit

When are you planning to have this discussion ?

@JeanFred Tried to find you but got waylaid. I'm in the Jerusalem room,
where are you?

In the Masada room working on WLM things ; but heading soon to the Monuments lunch meeting (T131435). Let’s find some time at some point :)

When are you planning to have this discussion ?

I had not really planned to work on these things at this hackathon, but since @Abit is here and interested in volunteer tools for program evaluation I figured it was a good opportunity to show her our work. The task name is probably too broad − I don’t think we will make any big decision in the next few days − I’ll rename it.

I presented to @Abit our metrics work for about an hour. No particular decision has been made, this was just a discussion.
