Description

Wikibase & co: the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly.

There seems to be a bit of a cultural disconnect between MediaWiki core developers, and people working on Wikibase. As a result, there is a reluctance to dive into the respective other code base. I propose this session as an opportunity to discuss what core developers like and dislike about the Wikidata codebase, and what the Wikidata team likes and dislikes about this codebase.

As a result, I hope we can work out next steps for resolving the worst issues, improve mutual understanding, and document best practices.

I won't be present on Hackaton but I'd be interested in participating in the discussion, is there a way to enable remote participation maybe? If not, please make good detailed records :)

From my experience remote participation in these kind of sessions doesn't work at all. Maybe you can provide some input prior to the event? I agree that keeping good detailed records is a must. If we do that in an etherpad you can follow the discussion real time.

Are you still planning to run this session? Would you prefer to have it scheduled in advanced (i.e. to promote it in our circles)?

It is time to promote Wikimedia-Hackathon-2015 activities in the program (training sessions and meetings) and main wiki page (hacking projects and other ongoing activities). Follow the instructions, please. If you have questions, about this message, ask here.

Here are the notes I took in the session. Very incomplete and maybe confusing, so feel free to edit and improve them!
