[MediaWiki-l] Announcing release of WikiFundi V2 !

Florence Devouard-6

*WikiFundi is a software that provides an off-line editing environment
that mimics the Wikipedia environment. WikiFundi allows for training and
contribution when technology, access and electricity outages fail or are
not available at all. It enables individuals, groups and communities to
learn how to edit Wikipedia or Vikidia, and to work on articles
collaboratively. Once connected to the internet, the articles can be
uploaded online on Wikipedia or Vikidia (manually, no automatic syncing).*


The plateform has been developed by Florence Devouard (Anthere),
Emmanuel Engelhard (Kelson), Florent Kaisser, Renaud Gaudin, and other
members of the community, in collaboration with Kiwix and Wikimedia CH.
The development of this software is made possible thanks to the
Wikimedia Foundation and the Orange Foundation. The WikiFundi software
and its documentation are licensed under CC-BY-SA 4.0.

The WikiFundi software is intended to support the WikiAfrica
<https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/WikiAfrica>movement and Wikimedia
volunteers across Africa. It is published by the South-Africa based
association Wiki in Africa <http://www.wikiinafrica.org/>. It has
already been used by wikimedia usergroups accross Africa for outreach,
as well as by several education projects, such as the WikiChallenge
Ecoles d’Afrique

The best way to get information about the tool is : * on meta:
