== [ (re)-Introduce ZIM support in Mediaswiki MediaWiki Book creator/OCG] ==
[http Mediawiki/ MediaWiki] is the wiki engine behind [http Wikipedia], all [http / Wikimedia projects] and thousands other Web sites. It's a cutting edge free software providing highly featured web sites that anybody can edit. Mediawiki MediaWiki hosted content can be made available for offline usage through the [ Collection extension] (written in PHP). The Collection extension allows to easily create collection/selection of articles: so called books ; here is [ how it works on the English Wikipedia in English]. One time Once created, books can be exported in the PDF format. The PDF exporting backend itself is not provided by the Collection extension, it's done with a JavaScript based solution called [ OCG]. OCG is a NodeJS daemon able to transform a book definition in a PDF and it should be able to do the same in the ZIM format. The [ ZIM format] allows to store web pages (with images, videos, etc...) in one extremely compressed file, these . These pages are then available to read on most computers with a reader like [ Kiwix]. A [ stub of solution] has already been written] and the [ MWOffline] is already functional. This [ task] is mostly about merging them.

<translate>=== Wikipublish === <!--T:5-->=== Wikipublish ===
Create a publication platform, a Web site online similar to itunes iTunes which would provide the list of available contents to download in ZIM, EPUB, .... also offer to see the book before downloading it.
* [ Wants Want to know more...]
* Add support of EPUB in Kiwix
<translate>=== OSM === <!--T:8-->=== OSM ===
Make a proof of concept of a ZIM file providing a map using OSM data and a tool like [ openLayer].
<translate>=== Improve P2P support === <!--T:9-->=== Improve P2P support ===
* Fix Mirrorbrain to [ integrate torrent links in mirrorbrain]
* Fix Mirrorbrain to [ support fallback torrent trackers in .torrent files]

<translate>=== Ambassador Program === <!--T:10-->=== Ambassador Program ===
Create an '''ambassador program'''. '''Ambassadors''' would be special people especially aware about Kiwix and able to help others:
* Spread contents
* Makes Make conferences* Makes Make advertisement
* Local representative
To do that, we should develop a set of tools:
* Advertisement Package
<translate><!--T:11-->==== Starter Kit (Assigned) ====<!--T:11-->
Perhaps a nice kit would help. You know, like for organizing Linux installation parties[1] or Mozilla's event kits[2] etc., that encourages people, and provides step-by-step guidance and advice, to go and install Kiwix with a relevant offline Wikipedia file in their local no-Internet (or restricted/expensive Internet) school, college, community center, etc.
Would anyone be interested in working on that? WMF can contribute funding for some materials -- a Kiwix quick-start guide or cheatsheet, stickers, T-shirts.
<translate>== Video == <!--T:12-->== Video ==It would be great to have a video (screencast) presenting the software with its most important featurefeatures.
Here is a proposition:
* Presentation slide of the video with slide and authors
