Create project ISA
Closed, ResolvedPublic


I request the creation of a project ISA

Name: ISA

Type: Component


This tool helps to describe the images contributed to Wiki Loves competitions.
Isa is not only an acronym for information structured additions, but is also a chiShona language word for ‘put’.

Can you please provide a link to "ISA"? How does it "help"? Where to find it hosted? Where to find its source code?

The documents about the tool named "ISA" are still not on the Wiki. Nevertheless, this project seeks to add structured data on Commons for images which are uploaded in contests such as the Wiki loves contests. The tool development just began and source code is in private repository ( will soon be moved to gerrit ) and is intended to be hosted on Tool Forge. More about this tool can be known by contacting Sandra (User:SandraF_(WMF)) of the structured data on commons team.

I can vouch for this! It's a piece of software which will be developed as a StructuredDataOnCommons GLAM pilot project.

We have just kicked off development and will also document it on wiki soon.

Is ISA the name of the tool or Information Structured Additions? My main concern would be that ISA wouldn't be a descriptive project name in phab.

Isa (or ISA) is its name indeed. It's going to be a tagging tool, and as @Eugene233 said, the word isa means 'to put' in the Shona language.

If it is too short, perhaps the project's name can be #Isa-Tool or something?
