>> Hi all,
>>
>> I've been tinkering with an idea I've had for importing Project Gutenberg
>> books into Wikisource: http://tools.wmflabs.org/pg2ws/
>>
>> The idea is that, if Wikidata makes a link between a PG ID number and a
>> Wikisource Index page, then we can go through that Index page one page at a
>> time, and copy the page's text from the PG book to the WS page.
>>
>> The interface so far isn't very brilliant, but I'm just trying to figure
>> out if this is worthwhile or not. Basically, it's a matter of selecting the
>> right chunk of text in the right-most text box (the full PG text) and
>> hitting the button to move it left into the centre box. Then cleaning it up
>> (manually and with the magic cleaning button) to make it match the image,
>> and then uploading it to Wikisource.
>>
>> It's a bad tool though, because it doesn't handle the running header, and
>> the copy-across button doesn't do nice things with {{hws}} etc. — not to
>> mention all the other things it doesn't do.
>>
>> Anyway, just thought I'd mention it. :-) Anyone think this is an avenue
>> worth exploring? Certainly I'd love to be able to say we've got everything
>> PG has *and more*!
