Wikisource community meeting, September 2023


· Wikisource ·

The Wikisource community meeting last night was interesting. Lots of things discussed, including:

  • Transkribus, Tesseract, and Google OCR issues;
  • copyright in countries with less stringent rules than the US and how we can upload those works to Commons (or locally to a Wikisource); and
  • How to restrict page validation to a subset of users (and whether it's a good idea to do so).
