LibreOffice events on the wiki - cleaning up duplicated content?

Hi everyone,

Many of you will have seen this page:

https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Events

There's a lot of information that's duplicated in both the calendar and
the wiki page (ie the events list underneath). I think it'd make more
sense to just have the calendar, and all events information in there.
What do others think? Is it important to have the separate wiki pages?

(On a similar note, we want to make the calendar embedded into the wiki
and LO website, rather than just via a link. This is a limitation with
Nextcloud, but should be fixed in the next release of the calendar.)

AW: [libreoffice-marketing] LibreOffice events on the wiki - cleaning up duplicated content?

The less to maintain the better.

And yes, having central places and let the other places referring to its content doing automatic refreshing too is „A Very Cool Thing“, IMHO.

One place makes sense. In the calendar, are all with access to
TDF-Nextcloud able to add events?

Re: LibreOffice events on the wiki - cleaning up duplicated content?

Hello everyone, I agree to separate the events so there is a better order.

The wiki can be a convenient way to keep track of information for an
event, coordinate people at booths, etc. For example, here's the event
page for SCALE conf:
https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Events/2015/SCALE

The wiki has some handy features that I'm not sure are available on
the calendar yet:
- Universal edit access (event volunteers, etc..)
- Version control
- Markup features

Perhaps all events should start as an entry on the calendar with date,
time, location, title, and a blurb. If we need to keep track of any
additional information for an event -- e.g. for a hackfest or
conference with volunteers -- we can create a wiki page for it, and
link it with the event on the calendar.

The top-level Events page on the wiki currently displays a handy
overview of all the events for the year, broken down by region. If
that table could be automatically generated from the calendar entries,
that'd be really slick!

Cheers,
--R

Yes, that makes sense to me.

That would be great -- although I've been investigating this and it
doesn't look possible, at least without a lot of work. We can get the
calendar data in .ics format, but I haven't found a MediaWiki method or
extension to process the content.

If anyone else has any ideas, let me know...

Mike
