Restarting this blog - news for February

It has been a long time since I made a blog post, and this is the first one that will be available through the Wikimedia Planet.

Since May last year, I've been voluntarily posting monthly reports of the Wikimedia language committee. Sometimes it included other relevant news, but I would like to extend my reporting to other things I do in the Wikimedia world, so that's why I'm restarting this blog. I, or occasionally a mysterious guest blogger, will probably write posts about news related to the LangCom, language support, Incubator, … 

I think this format of monthly updates is something that I am more likely to keep doing, rather than posts about a specific topic.

The following is what was up in February:
  • On 1 February, three wikis were created:, and
  • 1.19 deployment of course, which brings localized magic words and LanguageConverter to test wikis to Incubator
  • I've added a WebFont for the Lontara script, which will be enabled tomorrow on the Buginese Wikipedia.
  • For the Burmese language, which did already have WebFonts support, I submitted a bug to enable it on the Burmese Wikipedia.
  • In the committee, I've proposed the approval for the Slovenian Wikiversity, currently an active part of the BetaWikiversity.
  • Updated and improved some documentation on Meta related to requesting new wikis: merged several templates into one (hopefully easy to use) template.
  • The Translate extension has been enabled on Incubator, which improves the translation process of our documentation there. If you enjoy translating, your help is very welcome :-)
  • I'll probably participate in GsoC (I've been thinking about e.g. global preferences).
  • Applied for a Wikimania scholarschip, and maybe I'll submit a presentation.
  • Among other things, I'm working on Special:SearchWiki for Incubator, which should make it easier to find a wiki in your language.
