srishakatux added a comment to T250537: Move n3rsti/tools-gallery under toolforge on Github.

It seem like something should be done if the current owner is unresponsive. This was a tool that was worked on explicitly as a showcase and once proposed for inclusion on the Toolforge landing page to highlight community work. Does it at least have active co-maintainers who can switch out the running codebase if we create a new primary git repo?

So, we didn't hear from @N3rsti! It looks like we may have to follow an alternative route that you proposed once @bd808 (via the Git history) if we still think that this repo should be under Toolforge.

@srishakatux: If the goal for some reason was to have everything on one page then either labeled section transclusion should be used, or information on one page should be removed. I don't understand why we have duplicated info across pages as it increases maintenance costs and asks for outdated docs and confusion what to follow if you don't remember to update more than one page.
In my understanding, information that is not specifically about a round should never be on the sub(!)page for that round.

@Aklapper Good points! I have made some changes to address them. If I understand it correctly, the import and export process is the same as manually copying and pasting gadget code from one wiki to another; it is just that the former is a bit more automated. So, both should not be recommended unless there are code changes needed in the Gadget's code. I have re-organized the points accordingly. Might benefit from another look.

@RhinosF1 Sounds promising :) Anything we do here to make the process less complicated would bring a lot of value to the wikis! I can look more into this in a day or so and try to test this.

Thanks, Andre, for sharing all these helpful links. First, to one of your previous questions in this task–infoboxes indeed should be in the scope as they are in the Templates category.

srishakatux updated subscribers of T252147: Improve the new contributor onboarding process.

@Chaitanya Nice idea! It might be worth looking into the discussion on this task T136866: Improve the per-programming-language listings for our tools (especially for the per-programming-language listings) and T194556: Suggested improvements to annoying little bugs page (for expanding good first bugs page).
For building a programming list in an external tool, some organization in Phabricator around tags (and more) might be needed. I would be happy to provide feedback if you end up working on this :)

I agree with you that improving the design (including the placement of this gadget) might help. There is also something to learn from the design of the survey form used for this study: https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Research:Study_of_performance_perception_on_Wikimedia_projects,

@Aklapper Made a few minor changes here and split the point about enabling a gadget here. If you can take another look, then I can post on the SWT talk page for more feedback on Monday :)

@srodlund hey! earlier the better it would be :) Post might help convince mentors to use Zulip for coding period in GSoC/Outreachy.

As per conversation with @Pavithraes on Zulip.. in addition to sending email to accepted candidates, we plan to reach out to mentors as well about two things (in reply to the same email):

  • Link to the mentors' guide
    • Reminding especially first-time mentors to read the guide and also give them an option to set up a meeting with us for questions/discussion.
  • Encourage mentors to sign-up on Zulip if they are not already using any other platform for project collaboration, etc.
  • Highlight "building a community", "people are more important than code" aspects of these programs, etc.

https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Small_wiki_toolkits/Starter_kit#Gadgets states "if the gadget is already available" which links to https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Gadget_kitchen#Deploying_or_enabling_a_gadget but that's a bit misleading, as that is about turning a user script into a gadget on the very same wiki? Did you maybe want to link to https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Gadget_kitchen#Load_an_existing_user_script instead?

@Pavithraes Thank you for willing to take on this! :) I'm sharing with you the email we have sent to folks who we couldn't accept via Google Summer of Code. From what I remember, we didn't do the same for Outreachy as it is not that easy to obtain email addresses for Outreachy as it is for GSoC applicants.
