Abstract/description of your session[edit]

  • According to the Indic Wikisource Statistic tool data, Tamil Wikisource(WSta) contributors completed more than a lakh Proofread(yellow) pages among Indic Wikisource projects. we achieved this status mainly because of female contributors, the strategy discussions and our pywikibot codes especially to write headers, mass find and replaces, placing transclusion and few more templates, moving WS data to other sister projects like wiktionary, wikipedia, wikiquote. The pywikibot screencasts will be given. Let us learn together and grow together for the Open data.
