@Aklapper sounds good to me!
@Aklapper as that page will always have a limited number of gadgets chosen based on criteria, manually updating the statistics seems like a reasonable option. I can file a task around this if it makes sense.

@Aklapper this looks really good! I think it can go on the "Participants" pages for all three programs under a separate section, as you have proposed. Also, this would be suitable for the Outreach programs/Zulip page, maybe after removing 1-2 Phabricator specific points. About the FAQ, it can be moved under the "Application process steps" as a note.

It is published on diff too: https://diff.wikimedia.org/2020/09/30/one-year-of-small-wiki-toolkits-initiative-and-more-to-come/. I think we can close it now! Thanks all for your help!
Wikimedia is promoting eight projects via Outreachy Round 21, out of which 5 are focused on data science and engineering, 2 are testing and 1 documentation-related: https://www.outreachy.org/communities/cfp/wikimedia/
Just viewed some of the videos from the series and loved how they are clear, crisp, consistent, and of good quality :) My favorite frame is the "report the broken pipe.." task :D
@RexxS Thank you, all that sounds good to me and promising :) The program timeline is here: https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Outreachy/Round_21#Program_timeline.
Hi all-I've submitted the post on Diff as well for review. Hopefully, we will get it published there in a day or so and we can then close this task.

@srodlund You can keep me as the author of the post and give copy-editing credits to Birgit and yourself :)

@RexxS Thanks for your interest and willingness! Considering that you are a Lua expert, I have been searching for someone with a tech writing background. I had a chat with @Pavithraes, and she says that she can help in a supporting role, but cannot commit to this full time. She is willing to support the applicants during the contribution phase between October and November. During the three-month-long internship period, she can occasionally help review an intern's work between December to February and give feedback on the documentation. So, while I am still looking for someone who can commit to co-mentoring full time with you (which means on an average 3-5 hrs per week for three months) in the meantime, I also wanted to ask you:
- To go through these guidelines to learn about the roles and responsibilities of a mentor: https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Outreachy/Mentors and be aware of what you are signing up for :)
- Would it be possible for you to allocate 3-5 hrs per week with an intern between December-February? If it is too much work, you can frankly tell us.
It is a work in progress here: T264045

Closing this as done, thank you so much @Gopavasanth, for this idea and for implementing it <3
Ok, this task no longer needs to be assigned to me or left open, IMO. Andre did most of the work here :) I've asked folks to add their popular talks to https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Wikimedia_Technical_Engagement/Workshops_and_talks.

@Isaac Looks perfect! Feel free to upload it on the Outreachy site. And, you would be a second mentor on this project, I'm assuming?
@zeljkofilipin no trouble, you can resolve it whenever the work is done :)
@QEDK feel free to resolve this task as and when you close your proposal task.
