Fwd: Help get musical scores onto Wikipedia!

Jonathan Marmor
Hi! Would you like to help get musical scores onto Wikipedia?

Basically, as you can see from this abstract https://wikimania2012.wikimedia.org/wiki/Submissions/We_want_scores! , we've wanted for a long time to get musical scores (programmable & editable) onto Wikipedia.  Now it's almost ready!

https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:Score details the "Score" extension to MediaWiki -- you can see the recent changes at https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/#/q/project:mediawiki/extensions/Score,n,z .

The one major blocker right now regarding Score is making a particular dependency configurable:

https://bugzilla.wikimedia.org/show_bug.cgi?id=43388

and it sounds like a reasonably easy place for a newbie to get involved, if you are interested.  Getting started: https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/How_to_contribute

Thanks!

What exactly are they after? Are these small quotations or entire
scores, what is the scope. Is there a desiderata list? Or are they
after whatever jumble gets thrown at them?

Are these small quotations or entire
scores, what is the scope.

I think the first one, for Wikipedia (that is an encyclopedia), but the software (MediaWiki) might be used for many scopes.

Yes, while I'm not directly involved in the project, I believe Carlo is correct: for Wikipedia the primary use case is small quotations, however for the MediaWiki software support for entire scores would be wonderful.

The link to the original proposal was mangled in the first email.  Please note there is an exclamation mark at the end of the URL.  https://wikimania2012.wikimedia.org/wiki/Submissions/We_want_scores!
