Reminder : decisions taken at Montpellier's pre-hackathon:

  • each gadget has an independent repository on Git
  • a bot ships the code to each wiki that has requested the service
  • each gadget is translated on translatewiki
  • a local configuration is provided for each wiki to setup small changes

Things to take decision on:

What about:

  • How to convince English Wikipedia to be on the loop?
    • Gadgets and Modules are made by developers, who are aimed to work together.
  • Templates?
    • Can be centralized in the same project. That would ease translations.
  • How new wikis will be welcomed?
    • During the proof-of-concept time, only one gadget on a few wikis will be available.
    • Other wikis/gadgets/Templates will be progressively added. The taskforce takes all decisions when to open the project to more people/projects.
  • Third-party wikis?
    • They can have access to the repository.
    • They can get the bot working for them?


  • Goal: one gadget centralized before Wikimania as a proof of concept, and deployed on two friendly wikis (ca and fr, probably)
