*Content*


The English Wikiquote of the day for 8 August is from American poet Sara
Teasdale <https://en.wikiquote.org/wiki/Sara_Teasdale>. The quote is a
poem, "Alchemy
<https://en.wikisource.org/wiki/Rivers_to_the_Sea_(Collection)/Alchemy>,"
from her collection *Rivers to the Sea* that was published in 1915. A few
years later and for another poetry collection, Teasdale received a Pulitzer
prize <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pulitzer_Prize>.


The Commons picture of the day for 2 August was of a butterfly, a Spotted
fritillary (Melitaea didyma
<https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Spotted_fritillary_(Melitaea_didyma)_underside_Macedonia.jpg>),
in Galichica National Park, Republic of Macedonia (now North Macedonia), by
photographer Charles J. Sharp from Scotland.

The oldest “unbreak now” task on Phabricator as of 1 August was 0 days
<https://lists.wikimedia.org/pipermail/wikitech-l/2019-August/092369.html>.
(This could mean that there were no unbreak now tasks at the time that the
Phabricator report was generated, which would be good news.)
