Re: IMSLP to merge with WIMA

Just a quick update on the progress with the technical features required to start the uploading phase of the project:
-On every work page, there is now a link to a special page that will easily enable project members to transfer PDF files from the WIMA servers. There will be one for audio files in the future, but this isn't necessary at the moment since we're not uploading their audio files until a little later on.
-There will be a separate website created to host WIMA source files (linked to from IMSLP). There may be a new feature added enabling them to be automatically transferred to the new website, the same way PDF files can be transferred to IMSLP right now. Ideally this will be able to be accomplished in the same step.

I volunteer to help transferring files.
I would like to start with my own compositions and after that continue for example with works by Pachelbel.

I think it would be constructive to start a Wima Transferring Queue similar to the existing User Scanning Queue with the same purposes.

Excellent. You have now been added to the list of project members. However, please keep in mind that in order to preserve maximum organization of the project, one should systematically upload by contributor rather than by composer.

I have started this here and linked to it from the 'Uploading' section of the main project page.

As a number of issues have now been worked out and some preliminary uploads from WIMA have gone smoothly, it has been decided that the project will now officially open! Everyone may now upload freely, making sure of course to carefully observe the guidelines :wink:

I'm willing to help move my scores, but there are only a few that are not already here, 6 piano preludes to be exact and I was hoping to re-typeset them in the near future. I'm not sure there's anything I really need to do, but if so, I'm willing to do it!

I will try to transfer my own scores (Pierre Gouin - Les Éditions Outremontaises) as soon I can figure out how to do it...

At this point it doesn't look like there's anything you need to do, unless of course you want to help out with other contributors' files :wink:

Having joined IMSLP and this forum I will attempt to transfer my WIMA scores by myself. The implicit disclaimer is about my skills with computer code, which are not really existing. Yet I tend to get by, if I see the way the code-jugglers are thinking.

Actually I may take the chance to change a few graphic parameters in my Finale-based .pdf files. I used to have an excellent eyesight, 125% on both eyes which is the optimum in Danish terms. After some years with bad cataract problems surgery formally has restored eyesight to 100+% on both eyes. Yet I prefer more black on the pages now. That is: all lines being slightly thicker-

Is there a time limit for the transfer? It may have been announced, but then it has passed by me.

The Misc notes template of each piece I transfer says: These file(s) were originally part of the WIMA . Does this past tense mean that the piece will automagically disappear from WIMA? Then this would be useful to watch the job that has still to be done ;)

I'll not remove any files physically from WIMA until I feel comfortable with the merge. Transfer means copy, not move.

However, I do add redirection statements to the WIMA server for files copied to IMSLP. The effect of that is that clicking on links in WIMA composer pages takes you to IMSLP work pages for the compositions in question. For now I've added such redirection statements for the music by Elaine Fine. Please have a try!
