(This is part of a (mandatory) blog series documenting my experience in GSoC 2020 with Wikimedia Foundation. This series should serve for record-keeping purposes and as a reference for future GSoC students.)
Added: More Test Questions
To prepare the tool for public usage, more test questions were added to make sure that users have test questions to answer when using the tool.
Added: Ability to Post Edits to Wikimedia Commons
One of the most important function of the tool is the ability to post edits to Wikimedia Commons. We’ve added the ability to post depict claims and depict prominence edits to the site.
GSoC Coming to an End
I’ll publish another separate blog post documenting this whole program.
Final Report for this Project
(this section is copied over form https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T261179, refer to the task on Phabricator for the most updated version of the report)
A tool, Media Data Verification Tool (MDVT) was created under this program, which allows users to verify image data, mainly depict statement and qualifiers, on Wikimedia Commons.
During the development process, we decided to work on GitHub before the tool becomes stable and get transferred to Gerrit.
