Classic tasks:

  • Cleaning up older, out-of-date articles
  • Updating existing article
  • Organizing, categorizing, & restructuring the Wiki content
  • Editing existing articles
  • Developing ideas to improve the organization of the content on the Wiki
  • Reverting the occasional wiki vandalism

As pages graduate to the main website, it would be great to mark them as pending redirect and then have https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:ExternalRedirect to autoredirect

Local Labs

  • Walter will contact the Sugar Labs DC teacher to see if it is still active


  1. 3034 Update SL bar


Accomplish by editing http://wiki.sugarlabs.org/go/MediaWiki:Sitenotice

  1. 3047 Adopt SL bar on translate.sugarlabs.org


Applying http://wiki.sugarlabs.org/go/MediaWiki:Sitenotice to the front page of http://translate.sugarlabs.org/ can be accomplished, if it can be made simple HTML.

Sugar Creation Kit

Sugar_Creation_Kit is a long page with some great content and some stale content, owned by User:Satellit who will clean it up in the coming weeks/months

Activity Team

Activity_Team role needs some love, with the migration off of a centralized git-based repository Gitorious to diverse GitHub repos has to some extent decentralized a developer and localizer community that previously had a common point of contact.

  • Who adopts Activities stranded in Gitorious?
  • How to provide the best linkage for Activity feedback from less-sophisticated users back to developers/maintainers?
  • Translation_Team needs direct channels and responsive maintainers to advance i18n and L10n.

Activity pages

It would be highly desirable to develop a template for an activity page. It should have a box/table that displays all of the information contained (or that should be contained) in the activity.info file.

Can we get wiki pages created for these activities?

Can we identify the activities referenced in these wiki pages with a package in ASLO?

Translation Team

Chris Leonard User:Cjl would like to respectfully request editorial control over the Translation Team Translation_Team branch structure. I have some major work to do and it is going to be easiest to use wiki markup in the editing process. This is a very small portion of over all wiki content.

As an administrator, you have full editing rights. (Wiki page protection is limited in resolution to wiki group membership.) --FGrose (talk) 22:35, 20 April 2016 (EDT)
Indeed, the request is a formalism, not an admin action request, as B'crat, I can pretty much do as I please on the wiki :-) --cjl
