Wikimania 2014 Hackathon

Wikimania 2014 logo

Quick links:

Several people interested in Pywikibot will be at the Hackathon. This page will be used to discus what to work on. We'll probably have a mixed group of people from total Pywikibot newbies to die-hard Pywikibot developers. We need to find the right balance to not scare away the newbies, but also to have a productive hackathon for the existing Pywikibot developers. The slides for this and last year are available at [[1]].



The people who will try to not make a total mess of this

Here you can include possible topics. Feel free to completely rearrange or structure this. You can put your name in a topic if you're interested in it.

Bug sprint

We have many open bugs. Do a sprint to reduce this. <include link to open bugs in bugzilla>

Core review sprint

We have quite a bit of code to review (open patches). Together we can probably quickly reduce this.
