I think that Wikisource could *greatly* benefit from that direction.
What part(s) specifically?
Tough question! hard to say specifically but, here some of my random
- first, the whole process was incredible: very inclusive, collective and
broad (and not just for the Â« English Wikipedia Â» as it happens too often ;
even if I know that some exchanges have been heated on the French
wikisource, at least there was exchange), it not meaningless as it can
really be seen in the end result (look at all the footnote with so much
- the direction itself :
-- is quite obvious (and it's not a bad point for me, it's always good to
remind some basics and to determine our strengths, and at least it's not
disruptive which can be quite bullshity and can make the community afraid ;
in the end, it feels very natural to me, like something I could have
-- stress on the need to open more, towards new public, new systems, etc.
and to improve what already exist on that matter
As Wikisoure rely heavily on external resources (both in entry : scans on
digital libraries, tools like BUB and in exit : tools like WSexport), it's
even more important for us to know that building and improving relationship
with our allies is a direction of the movement.
