From Strategic Planning

Task Force Weekly Report: week of 2009-12-29<date>

Task Force Name:

Report of Activities

A new recommendation document has been drafted. It consists of three problems and possible strategies for solving these:

  • Bandwidth issues in under-connected regions.
  • Importance of content that are of interest to local users.
  • Localization of MediWiki system messages.
  • Simplifying the interface for translators.

Further most of the ideas discussed through the planing process has been summarized in a last section.

Planned activities for next week

It would be good if more information on character support for different languages and issues connected with right to left writing systems could be presented and strategies formed for dealing with these problems. Further some analysis on whether Wikipedias are to slow to load in many regions would be nice.

Resources needed

  • Data on average internet connection speeds in different regions of the world.
  • Problem description of problems related to right to left support and information on what it takes to solve these problems.
  • Problem description of character set support and information on what it takes to solve this problem.
