Community updates
Things to do / input and feedback requests
A multi-licensed image on Wikimedia Commons, with a custom {{EthnologyItemMHNT}} Information template. Do you also know media files on Commons that will be interesting or challenging to model with structured data? Add them to the Interesting Commons files page.
Presentations / Press / Events
Presentation about Structured Commons and Wikidata, at WikimediaCon in Berlin.
  • Sandra presented the plans for Structured Commons during WikidataCon in Berlin, on October 29. The presentation focused on collaboration between the Wikidata and Commons communities. You can see the full video here.
Partners and allies
  • We are still welcoming (more) staff from GLAMs (Galleries, Libraries, Archives and Museums) to become part of our long-term focus group (phabricator task T174134). You will be kept in the loop of the project, and receive regular small surveys and requests for feedback. Get in touch with Sandra if you're interested - your input in helping to shape this project is highly valued!
Research
  • Research findings from interviews and surveys of GLAM project participants are being published to the research page. Check back over the next few weeks as additional details (notes, quotes, charts, blog posts, and slide decks) will be added to or linked from that page.
Development
  • The Structured Commons team has written and submitted a report about the first nine months of work on the project to its funders, the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation. The 53-page report, published on November 1, is available on Wikimedia Commons.
  • The team has started working on designs for changes to the upload wizard (T182019).
  • We started preliminary work to prototype changes for file info pages.
  • Work on the MediaInfo extension is ongoing (T176012).
  • The team is continuing its work on baseline metrics on Commons, in order to be able to measure the effectiveness of structured data on Commons. (T174519)
  • Upcoming: in the first half of 2018, the first prototypes and design sketches for file pages, the UploadWizard, and for search will be published for discussion and feedback!
Stay up to date!

Structured Commons focus group update, December 11, 2017

MediaWiki message delivery (talkcontribs)

Hello! You are receiving this message because you signed up for the community focus group for Structured Commons :-)

Later this week, a full newsletter will be distributed, but you are the first to receive an update on new requests for feedback.

Three requests for feedback
  1. We received many additions to the spreadsheet that collects important Commons and Wikidata tools. Thank you! Now, you can participate in a survey that helps us understand and prioritize which tools and functionalities are most important for the Wikimedia Commons and Wikidata communities. The survey runs until December 22. Here's some background.
  2. Help the team decide on better names for 'captions' and 'descriptions'. You can provide input until January 3, 2018.
  3. Help collect interesting Commons files, to prepare for the data modelling challenges ahead! Continuous input is welcome there.

Warmly, your community liaison SandraF (WMF) (talk)

Hello! You are receiving this message because you signed up for the the community focus group for Structured Commons :-)

IRC office hour today, 21 November, 18.00 UTC
  • The IRC office hour about Structured Commons takes place at 18:00 UTC in wikimedia-office webchat. Amanda, Ramsey and I will give updates about the project, and you can ask us questions. The log will be published afterwards.
Tools update

Many important community tools for Commons and Wikidata will benefit from an update to structured data in the future. You can help indicate which tools will need attention:

'podcast program' versus 'audio podcast'

Toaem (talkcontribs)

Hi,

you applied "instance of audio podcast" to a number of podcasts. 'audio podcast' is a subclass of 'podcast' which denotes the means of distribution. Instead 'podcast program' can be used in analogy to 'radio program'.

Mass-adding C++ to projects written in C

1
5.167.71.109 (talkcontribs)

Hi YULdigitalpreservation, I've noticed that you added C++ as a programming language (P277) to a large number of projects around 30 January 2017. I've looked through some of the edits and noticed that they all have "stated in: English Wikipedia" reference. However, many of those projects don't mention C++ on their Wikipedia pages. What's more, they don't mention C++ on their official sites or sometimes even in their code statistics. I didn't look through all the projects, of course, and I also understand that C and C++ are pretty similar/interchangeable at times, but the nature of these mass-edits suggests that many of these claims are in error. Some examples:

git (Q186055): enwiki says "C, Shell, Perl, Tcl, Python", repo statistics say "C++ 1.6%" - a minimal amount for a projects with 12 years of history

Mercurial (Q476543): enwiki says "Python and C", openhub statistics say "C++ 0.3%"

Mirai (Q27517815): enwiki says "C (agent), Go (controller)", analysis page says "C&C (command and control) code is coded in Go, while its bots are coded in C", no mention of C++ anywhere

Flatpak (Q22661286): enwiki says "C", repo statistics don't mention C++ (maybe in "other 0.4%").

GTK+ (Q189464): enwiki says "C", repo statistics say "C++ 1.1%"

GNU Emacs (Q1252773): enwiki says "Emacs Lisp, C", repo statistics don't mention C++ (maybe in "other 2.6%")

libxslt (Q6542808): enwiki says "C", home page doesn't mention C++

Many more don't mention C++ on their wiki page, like libvpx (Q26259220), Fossil (Q1439431) but I couldn't find their language statistics.

Maybe the problem was in selecting appropriate projects for adding the claim? A broken regular expression that selects projects written in C (not C++)? I've never used Widar myself, but a software bug is always a possibility.

The Structured Commons team at Wikimania 2017

Two new people have been hired for the Structured Data on Commons team. We are now complete! :-)

  • Ramsey Isler is the new Product Manager of the Multimedia team.
  • Pamela Drouin was hired as User Interface Designer. She works at the Multimedia team as well, and her work will focus on the Structured Commons project.
Partners and allies
  • We are still welcoming (more) staff from GLAMs (Galleries, Libraries, Archives and Museums) to become part of our long-term focus group (phabricator task T174134). You will be kept in the loop of the project, and receive regular small surveys and requests for feedback. Get in touch with Sandra if you're interested - your input in helping to shape this project is highly valued!
Research

Design research is ongoing.

  • Jonathan Morgan and Niharika Ved have held interviews with various GLAM staff about their batch upload workflows and will finish and report on these in this quarter. (phabricator task T159495)
  • At this moment, there is also an online survey for GLAM staff, Wikimedians in Residence, and GLAM volunteers who upload media collections to Wikimedia Commons. The results will be used to understand how we can improve this experience. (phabricator task T175188)
  • Upcoming: interviews with Wikimedia volunteers who curate media on Commons (including tool developers), talking about activities and workflows. (phabricator task T175185)
Development

In Autumn 2017, the Structured Commons development team works on the following major tasks (see also the quarterly goals for the team):

  • Getting Multi-Content Revisions sufficiently ready, so that the Multimedia and Search Platform teams can start using it to test and prototype things.
  • Determine metrics and metrics baseline for Commons (phabricator task T174519).
  • The multimedia team at WMF is gaining expertise in Wikibase, and unblocking further development for Structured Commons, by completing the MediaInfo extension for Wikibase.

Welcome to the Structured Commons focus group!

MediaWiki message delivery (talkcontribs)

Hello! Thank you very much for signing up to the community focus group for Structured Commons :-)

How to organize ourselves?

This focus group is new and experimental, and I welcome your tips and thoughts on how we can organize this in the most convenient and productive way. For now, I have posted a few separate topics on the focus group's talk page. Please add your questions there too! If we all add that page to our watchlist, that's probably a good way to stay up to date with current discussions. Steinsplitter has also initiated a brand new IRC channel specifically for Structured Commons: wikimedia-commons-sd (webchat) which we invite you to join. Please let me know if you have other ideas on how to work together.
