leila added a comment to T185160: Gather basic statistics on languages spoken by editors.

@bmansurov I think X, Y, and Z in Diego's note are the number of people who have specified those two as the languages that they are proficient in. I think we should be a bit more specific by how you count those numbers though, as there are different levels of proficiency. So let's start with:

I reached out to workshop co-chairs to ask for details about fixed events: coffee breaks, lunch, whether they expect a keynote on that day, etc. Once that information is in, we can start working on the schedule. For now I put a tentative schedule in the Description.

Reviewing a large number of free-text responses for PII, etc. is still a challenge, and makes it necessary to manually review any given set of survey data will be able to be released. That's a task for the researchers though. @leila and @DarTar experienced this challenge when they wanted to release the "Why we read Wikipedia" dataset. I don't remember what the outcome was, but they may be able to help.

This is meant to be (I think) the dumps of content from RESTBase as stored by parsoid. I know I can't get to this before at least February and maybe later than that.

If you can get to it by February, that'd be great. If you can't, it's good to know when it's reasonable to expect for you to have time to get to this. We can set expectations accordingly with the research community.
