UserBase Wiki Team

Notes from the 2017 Akademy BOF BoF notes 2018

  • A new Introduction to new contributors - should be short and focus on the bare essentials; how to get an account, how to get in contact, a few things to avoid when editing existing pages, links to detailed info.
    • The existing help pages needs cleanup and restructuring.

Use [[Category:New page]] at the bottom of any page that we are currently working on (wheather it is a new page or an old page under revision. When the work is done change [[Category:New page]] to [[Category:Good page]] (it won't be displayed on the actual page - it is just there to help us keep track of our work.

Plan of attack

  1. Plasma pages - at least the general stuff.
  2. Create pages for missing applications -- at least short description, logo, screenshot and links. Details can come later.
  3. Existing application pages - make sure basic info is up to date, links working. Determine if content needs rewriting
  4. Contributors pages

Needs attention at some point

  1. Stats - most of the statistics no longer works.
    • {{Special:TranslationStats produces what look like an image frame that can't find the associated image file. TranslationStats is part of the Translate extension (see more here).
    • <TopTenPages /> doesn't seem to be reckognized any more.
  2. The Translate system behaves somewhat unpredictably.
    • Pages that have been marked for translation does not always show up in the Special:LanguageStats page.
    • The given number of translation units that needs attention is sometimes not correct
    • In the translation interface (Special:Translate) when displaying differences the whole page is being shown rather than just the actual unit.
  3. Some pages are not linked to: fx KDE_System_Administration
  4. Some pages are probably not needed anymore:
  5. There are several references to Strigi, sRts, KControl, Kicker
  6. The mediawiki installation: It is old - may need updating, which might solve other problems
  7. Searching for users: the search box is not as useful as it might be - it finds everything including all translations
  8. Searching for contributors and admins: The templates and DPL examples in User:Claus chr/DPL have been updated - they should work as originally intended.
    • The DPL extension is very old and has been superseeded by DynamicPageLoad 3 — should we update (that would require updating mediawiki as well)?

Needs to be added to/changed in help page

  1. The new {{Emoji}} template

Pages that are not linked to

  1. Phonon
  2. Baloo
  3. Accessibility (and pages linked from there)
