jayvdb added a comment to T180962: Add basic Gerrit support to git-repo.

Because it is a tool for Gerrit. *shrug* But removing the tag is ok.

@Paladox , this is a git client tool, which interfaces with lots of different git servers. It can happily support them all. Please read tasks before you comment on them.

jayvdb added a comment to T170356: Evaluation of Zulip as a mentoring tool for Wikimedia outreach programs .

Just a quick anecdote. I used zulip as part of GSOC 2017 mentoring for all the (weekly) meetings which we held, and we also used gitter to communicate occasionally for some of the more technical questions that needed an immediate response to avoid delays in the project. This is because gitter notifications worked better than zulip or IRC at ensuring a rapid response on specific chat rooms, because it also sends an email with any unread messages. OTOH, Zulip was better for scheduled meetings, and discussion threads which spanned large periods of time, and for keeping in contact with the other GSOC people (admins, mentors, students). Both clients were light weight, and low permissions, so it wasnt a huge drama for us to have multiple clients installed. We also both used IRC occasionally also, but not as a mechanism for having a discussion between mentor and mentee.

I am interested in mentoring this, but I need to co-mentor it with someone who is highly active in a community that uses FlaggedRevs. As there hasnt been any response from German Wikipedians, I've asked for a co-mentor from the Indonesian Wikipedia community, which I know struggles with their use of this extension. Will let you know if I find anyone.

While the wording in the GSOC concept that I wrote was "Pywikibot must add a bot " , I have been encouraging Pywikibot bots to be not part of the 'core' repository for the reason that @zhuyifei1999 explains, unless they fit within the core teams needs. However for a separate repo to be sufficient for GSOC , it must have their own test suite run by CI.

Hi @srishakatux , I guess that depending on the applicant. @happy5214 is interested, has a good background knowledge for this project, and we've got a good working relationship already, so it would be easy to sole-mentor the project with him. But a different applicant might bring new challenges which would mean a second mentor would be good to have.

@happy5214 , I've removed myself from other mentoring projects, but I am interesting in doing this one if you want to apply. Grab me on gitter to chat?

I havent been actively developing Pywikibot, and preparing to mentor this particular project (which would fiddle deep in the belly of pywikibot) would require getting up to speed on a lot of changes since I very active.

jayvdb added a comment to T154771: [RfC] Abandon support for Python 2.6.

The pypi package doesnt support py26 as pypi is intended to be a stable/supported release, and py26 is not stable/support-able.

jayvdb added a comment to T130805: Create some tests for pywikibot.diff.PatchManager.

Note we currently have good coverage, but there are still some major component of the PatchManager which do not have any coverage at all.
