srishakatux added a comment to T251182: Improve our GSoC/Outreachy documentation based on Lessons Learned (2020).

@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 I don't understand why we have duplicated info across pages as it increases maintenance costs and asks for outdated docs and confusion what to follow if you don't remember to update more than one page.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.

  • 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.

Trying to recall..I don't think I have ever logged into superset or turnilo before. Anything else I can do to help reproduce the issue? :-/

srishakatux added a comment to T248964: Implement inequality metrics for WikiStats.

Hi everyone! After checking with Google about the time requirements for the program, I learned that we would not be able to accept this proposal as part of GSoC as it does not meet the requirement of +30 hrs time commitment per week. Of course, @Quasipodo can work on the project outside GSoC.

@srishakatux: Ah, so you do not plan to "recommend the top 20 most used gadgets" to small wikis, good, thanks. :)

@Aklapper Yes, it is about the potential approach to identify recommendations so that we can start somewhere ;-) The idea is that once we agree on a plan, we use that to build a list and then later gather feedback from interested folks to modify/expand it. From what I understand, with these recommendations we are targeting small wikis that don't use gadgets or templates at all or use them way too less. Does that make sense?

@Aklapper I think not in the scope of this very task but the parent task, yes! But, maybe in the first phase we focus on the items already filed as subtasks.

@Xqt Hi! As this task is tagged as good first task, it might be ideal if there could be some getting started steps added as well to this task's description. It is not clear to me how to begin and add wikihow family farm to pywikibot/families.

@Gopavasanth Hi! As this task is tagged with good first task, it might be ideal if you can add to the task description, what home.js component does, and how to go about splitting it. For the scope of this task, contributing to one new component might be reasonable that you can advise what that should be. Please update the task description accordingly. Thanks!
