    • TBA
    • Need to clarify when copyright fall in public domain for non US citizens and materials published out of the USA.
    • Wikisource workshop for Learning Network in west Africa.
  • Future Work (long term) for specfic use-case or works:
    • Develop a module or document the existing modules, to do colorspace conversions, A module that does XYZ or xyY to RGB triplets would be useful in respect of a specific reconstructive efforts for a specfic work at Wikisource. In addition another work expresses it's colored sample plates by proportions based on 'standard' hues expressed as wavelengths. A gadgetised pallete selector/mixer applet in the toolbar would be useful for this, with scope for it's use beyond wikisource. There is open source code that does some colorspace conversions, but the version I found was for Matlab, not js or Lua. ShakespeareFan00 (talk) 17:09, 21 February 2024 (UTC)[reply]

January 2024 meeting[edit]

  • Complete notes: Etherpad link
  • Agenda (feel free to edit!):
    • Check the Etherpad for complete notes on what happened in the meeting
    • YouTube channel for Wikisource Community User Group
    • Potential items for agenda, (Technical):
      1. Potential for PDF-image quality improvements on Wikisources? (see T256848, T224355, T184867)
      2. Special:Pages (and User contribution logs) should support coloring for Page:s per Page Quality Status)
      3. Special:LintErrors should support options to filter Page: by "pagequality" directly.
      4. Update LintHint.js script used by some users into fully integratable Gadget, that is also aware of Page: header and footer considerations.
      5. Review approaches to side-notes/side titles and margin-notes, implementing a single practical solution. In respect of certain works such as legislation updates to the Cite Extension allowing for margin refs, that will render either as sidenotes/margin notes on desktop but footnotes on mobile should be considered.
      6. Cite extension uses SPAN for footnotes, In some instances this requires work-arounds for block based footnotes. Direct support for block-based references in <ref>..</ref> tags would be a benefit to Wikisources.
