Programs & Events Dashboard is a complex web app for keeping track of contributions to Wikimedia projects. It's widely used by the global Wikimedia community for edit-a-thons, classroom wiki writing assignments, and a variety of other initiatives.
The goal of this project is to improve the system's flexibility by adding support for program organizers to specify which namespaces they want to count statistics for.
Possible tasks include:
- Designing and implementing a UI for selecting which namespaces to track
- Updating event statistics update process to account for namespace settings
