News Updates

I know this is just the beginning, but I think a lot of other people might be as curious as I to know what is happening here on a more regular basis. I also know that most people are used to using email mailing lists for this sort of thing. However, since I maintain a general disdain for email, I thought it might not be too audacious to suggest a News page for the wiki here.

It would be nice to know more about where things are going and follow discussions in HTML. It might also be nice to have regular updates on what Walter and other luminaries are thinking about the direction of this whole thing. I am quite excited about the direction this is taking (although it scared me quite a bit until this site appeared), but the general lack of information makes one uncomfortable. Thus, I am making this request.

See Walter's message from two days ago to the mailing list. This wiki didn't exist more than about a week ago, but you can read the list archive via HTML here. Cjl 23:17, 20 May 2008 (UTC)

Wiki Theme

Can I get a copy of this mediawiki theme anywhere? I love it. Will Sugar Labs release it to the public?

We are happy, that you like our Shikiwiki-theme: You can download it here. --Helga 15:12, 24 May 2008 (UTC)

ParserFunctions needs to be installed

Although the templates for translations have been copied over from, they do not work correctly, since they depend on the WikiMedia extension ParserFunctions, which is apparently not installed/enabled for the SugarLabs wiki. The symptom of this is stuff with {{#if: in the displayed text (e.g. in the translation box on this main welcome page. This needs to be enabled by an administrator, and may even require installing software on the server. Dupuy 15:22, 9 June 2008 (UTC)
