What will be included in the Wikipack?[edit]

Something is nor clear to me. Exactly what will be included in this Wikipack and what will be its purpose? I started a discussion on the French Wikipack discussion page. GastelEtzwane (talk) 09:14, 21 July 2016 (UTC)

Hi GastelEtzwane, thanks for the question. Each WikiPack is intended for a group of Wikimedia volunteers and/or an active Wikipedian in Residence in a country. Each pack will contain :
  1. Hardware: Two Raspberry PI servers for offline access to content helpful for the Wikimedian groups. In the pilot phase, we plan to equip 8 groups in Africa.
  2. WikiFundi Software: An offline “basic” editable mediawiki website, modelled like Wikipedia, for the off-line editorial practice that can be uploaded too or copied onto the relevant Wikimedia project. This software is currently being developed and will additionally be made available to everyone on an online platform. Offline versions of Wikipedia, Wikibooks, Wikiversity (those are available from the Kiwix project : http://www.kiwix.org/wiki/Main_Page)
  3. Digital content: Curated multimedia content: video and written tutorials, guideline articles and toolkits, educational content, general toolkits, how-to’s, etc.. The digital content will be made available for all on an online platform.
  4. Non digital content: Marketing and communication materials: posters, badges, stickers, banners, etc.

Let me know if you have any other questions? Islahaddow (talk) 10:24, 21 July 2016 (UTC)
