I'm a software engineer at the Wikimedia Foundation. I'm on the Growth team.

In 2010, I earned my BS in Computer Science from Georgia Tech, where I was a research assistant with the Electronic Learning Communities lab.

Feel free to try out ProveIt, a tool we developed at ELC for Wikipedia reference management.

comment How can I pass in a FTP username and password to WinSCP?
@Redmumba, correct. The password would be exposed to a local attacker, or local malicious code with sufficient privileges. However, there are mitigating factors in our case to prevent escalation. Further, FTP passwords are already vulnerable to network interception.

comment How to check mysql status on Unix
@Stan, that means mysql isn't in the PATH. You can adjust that, or get the full mysql path from which then put it in the command: ssh server 'echo status|/full/path/to/mysql'
