  • Group discussion on possible future partnerships, and opportunities/issues.

Meanwhile, other editors can gather for the

  • hackathon: a room will be dedicated to hacking and talking about technical issues at Wikisource.
  • Free workshops. Possible topics are:
    • Proofread extension technical (requires a technical presenter, maybe Tpt)
    • Some idea of projects to improve the Wikisource technical infrastructure (Tpt)

    • running the proofread contest, how to operate the scripts (who? please sign)
    • DIY scanner, how to assemble it (who? please sign. We have contacts who own the scanner)
      • There is a DIY bookscanner in the community space of Paris, France (Wikipédia:Cléry). I don't speak very well English but could try to present our project. Pyb (talk) 16:47, 30 September 2015 (UTC)

Saturday will be the day for the most important discussions. The aim of this day is come up with a "manifesto" of Wikisource, and a roadmap for the near future.

We will discuss:

  • What is Wikisource?
  • Differences and similarities with related projects as Wikipedia, Wikibooks, Internet Archive, Project Gutenberg, etc.
  • What is needed for Wikisource to scale up? Setting of priorities.
  • Wikisource and Wikidata?

For those who don't want to participate in the discussion (but you're encouraged to), there will be always the possibility of working in the hacking space.
