Can you please place them in a subpage of your project page? I'm unlikely to watch your user page because I don't know you, but I may watchlist the status updates. Thanks, Nemo 09:26, 24 March 2014 (UTC)Reply

Join the GSoC & OPW IRC meeting


Hi! The community bonding period is over, and you should have started working on your project. In addition to the strict work, you are required to report frequently, see the details at the GSoC or OPW pages.

The Engineering Community team is organizing a Q&A session for all participants (mentors included) tomorrow Tuesday at #wikimedia-office connect, see Engineering Community Team/Meetings/2014-05-20. See you there!--Qgil (talk) 21:57, 19 May 2014 (UTC)Reply



Hi Fhocutt, I saw your emails regarding your evaluations of MediaWiki client-side api libraries, and I found your project to be very interesting; an evaluation of this sort is long overdue, and I'm already excited to hear the results! I recently began development on my own client-side library when I found the other libraries here to be lacking in one way or another. While it's still very much a work in progress, I'd like to humbly submit it for your evaluation, if you'd be interested in having my codebase be a part of your project. No pressure though. Let me know if you have any questions, and best of luck with your internship! :) -FASTILY 18:06, 5 July 2014 (UTC)Reply

Hi User:Fastily, thanks for pointing me at jwiki! Unfortunately, time pressures mean that there's no space for me to add more libraries to evaluate this summer. Feel free to look through the evaluations I'm putting up at API:Client code/Evaluations and consider how yours fits in with the ones I've looked at, or if you or anyone else want to start adding to the evaluations that are there, please have at it! --Fhocutt (talk) 01:52, 17 July 2014 (UTC)Reply
