Anoncement & Discussion at WS:S Dt.10&11Feb2017 for record[edit]

Project by New Law College Pune[edit]


There is a discussion under progress at w:en:New Law College (Pune) to take up proof reading, validation, compilation etc. of Indian Laws and to begin with Copyright laws and Intellectual property laws at Portal:Copyright law/Copyright law of India as a (internship) project, most likely in consultation with CIS A2K and local wikipedian community. Activity likely to begin by middle of next week.

Undersigned requests your initial support in making other Intellectual property laws available, and initial support to new users. Please do note that most of the faculty and student's first exposure of editing is begining with wikisource and may not necessarily have previous exposure to wikipedia editing.

Besides would like to create a Project come Dashboard kind of page.
Besides would like to know if wikisource is already having any thing simillar tow:en:Wikipedia:Education_program separately for wikisource.
Suggessions are welcome.

Thanks for all support of all en wikisource community in this initiative.

This sounds like a worthwhile project, Will this be solely in English or were translations (to official languages) on the appropriate Wikisource also being considered?
Although it may not yet exist in an open format, something else I'd also strongly suggest transcribing if licensing permits is a list of former British measures repealed in the Republic of India after 1947 to present day. As I understood it Indian legal practice followed English practice closely, and so a "Table of Statutes" for the Republic of India would almost certainly exist?
Did you plan to note in the headers of the transcribed items, information concerning subsequent repeals or amendments, or were you only transcribing the "as enacted" versions of the legislation concerned? Having an accurate Table of Statutes would assist in providing this metadata.

I will also note that there was a series of {{cl-act-paragraph}} templates to assist with formatting legislation with side-titles, BUT having been involved with their development, was of the view that they need to be drastic overhaul before being used further. Other contributors here may be able to advise on formatting and cross-referencing issues.
It was however my understanding that in general, Wikisource used the "Short title" of a measure for linking purposes, Disambugating where needed. ShakespeareFan00 (talk) 15:54, 10 February 2017 (UTC)

Thanks User:ShakespeareFan00 for your valuable feed back. The focus of this college is mainly english specific; (Translations of entire laws will be too big a project for now, For example at Marathi wikipedia copyright case articles I am translating relevant sections only, at a latter stage they may be clubbed together at mr-wikisource and remainin translation can be done; For rest of Indic language translators looking for participation of different audience some thing like journalism students would be more effective.) Your discussion also reminded me need to take account pre-indipendance copyright acts applicable in Portugese and French published in Goa and Pondicherry.

Transcribing if licensing permits is a list of former British measures repealed in the Republic of India after 1947 to present day is a good suggession; this and other suggessions I will inform about this discussion to project co-ordinating faculty.

About wikisource style guide a seperate group of students can be made to study style guide and inform their peers.

Thanks for your valuable feed back once again and regards

Some of the repealed acts are listed in Index:British Statutes (Application to India) Repeal Act 1960.djvu. Another list is at w:List of Acts of the Parliament of India. Hrishikes (talk) 04:55, 11 February 2017 (UTC)
We would not usually have a long discussion in an announcement.

We have always been supportive of Wikisource:WikiProjects. I would invite you to set up a project then announce it and invite people to discuss it there. There is a range of expertise and knowledge that can be provided or requested. Style and templates is definitely an issue to discuss, and these projects will have examples of what they have done. — billinghurst sDrewth 10:44, 11 February 2017 (UTC)

Request to Subodh[edit]

@ User:सुबोध कुलकर्णी please add Mr.Tanvir's Username to the list. Rgds Mahitgar (talk) 14:47, 24 February 2017 (UTC)

creating shortcut[edit]

@ User:Billinghurst

Is it possible to introduce shortcut to Index pages (The way we can do for project pages) ? If it is possible what are short alphabates for Index namespace ?

We are interested in this feature since it will be more easy to remember links for education/internship program students to reach intended Index pages more easily, Usually these Index pages are are too lengthy to remember.

Thanks and warm regards

@Mahitgar: Not something about which the community has discussed. There isn't an alias for the Index: namespace [1] so that would have to be complete namespace component. I don't have a particular concern if we are not talking too many, and they are highly unlikely to clash with a real work name. So you might be able to do something like Index:ICA1957. That said it is a broader community decision, rather than mine, though what you suggest doesn't phase me within a limited scope.

The other thing that you could consider is a good navigation template to put onto your works, or onto a project page, we have numbers of those in place for multi-volume works, and you could have a similar concept here. Also I would encourage you to put something like <font color=white>InternshipProject</font> into the ToC section as then you can utilise that as a tag.

Then we can have magic like {{Special:IndexPages|key=InternshipProject}} to generate ...

The search engine does not work. Sorry for the inconvenience.

which allows you to easily see the breadth and progress and to have active wikilinks. — billinghurst sDrewth 22:41, 26 February 2017 (UTC)

Pages saved as proof read are around 18 but here Still it was showing 13 the old figure; I cleared cache of my browser still figure was at 13. but when I saved this message it changed to 18. It seems it is not live enough as it is live directly on Index page itself.
Please do guide. Thanks and regards
