WMHack19 Focus Area: Mobile contributions to Wikimedia Commons
Closed, ResolvedPublic


We will use this task to being tracking and planning for the Mobile contributions to Wikimedia Commons focus area for the Wikimedia Hackathon 2019.
Please comment in this task if you have ideas or are already planning to do some work in this area.

Mobile contributions to Wikimedia Commons | Taking pictures for Wikipedia is one of the simplest ways of contributing. We have a fantastic team of volunteer developers from all over the world working on the Wikimedia Commons mobile android app. A lot of work still remains to improve code quality, add some of the most requested new features and promote the app among potential users. We need a team with a very diverse set of skills to keep making this app better.

@Rfarrand: Anything left to do / follow up (in separate tasks?) in this Prague Hackathon task, or can this be resolved?

That is a question for
