Wikimedia documents initiative
The Wikimedia documents initiative (WMDOC) aims at creating and maintaining a centralized set of standardized, up-to-date and localized core reference documents for public relations, marketing and public outreach. It follows the PR material cleanup.
All documents will be hosted on meta-wiki. Their PDF version will be hosted on Commons.
This initiative's goal is to maintain a set of core documents such as leaflets, cheatsheets, presentations and one-pagers. All-in-one kits with several of these documents will also be offered for Wikimedians who want to stage an event easily. More specific documents such as posters can be created but they won't be a part of the core set of documents.
Tools & fonts
- Scribus for most of the desktop publishing
- LaTeX Beamer for presentations
- Inkscape for vector graphics
