Continuing goals


  • Monitor Sugar Labs community communications to learn of potential wiki content or service improvements.
  • Monitor Sugar Labs' and collaborators' wikis contents for potential improvements.
  • Address #tickets.

Near-term goals

(3-6 months)

Medium-term goals

(6-12 months)

  • Investigate inter-wiki searching options that would allow for joint searching of Sugar Labs and collaborator wikis.
  • Seek collaboration on better separation and joining of information between collaborator wikis, i.e.,

Long-term goals

(1-3+ years)

  • Seek more ways to automatically embed integrative links on mailing list posts, patchwork, gitorious, bugs, doc, translate, etc. products so Learners can easily navigate to the source.


  • What does the team see as its constraints from being more successful in its Mission?
    1. Participation
    2. Technological complexity
    3. Complexity of organizing information
  • What are we doing to try to resolve the constraint?
    1. Maintain quality of information and service.
    2. Watch for prime wiki applications where thresholds are low and ceilings high.
  • What can Sugar Labs 'central' or the community do to help?
    1. Promote greater documentation and interlinking of information.
    2. Attract more participants by public discussion.

Test wikis

Note: The following two wikis share the same page database, but have separate server configurations.

  • Follow up on marking pages on as migrated.
    See open bugs for the remaining open bugs.


  • Install mediawikiwiki:Extension:NewArticleTemplates for easier new page editing support for new and experienced users. (Lower floor and raise ceiling.)
    1. include separate subpage template
    2. investigate to determine if the Mediawiki:NewArticleTemplate could include a template parameter that would default to Mediawiki:NewArticleTemplateDefault, but allow an arbitrary NS_MAIN page to be called for customization.
      If you want a button to "create a new page", you can use Extension:Inputbox See example at olpc::Testing_meetings. -- Skierpage 17:16, 30 March 2009 (UTC)
  • Consider embedding Nabble's Sugar Forum to provide a mailing list forum environment on the wiki.


If and when has a lot of information that can be displayed, queried, and summarized in multiple places, the olpc:Semantic MediaWiki extension is the way to represent it. As of March 2009 it's unclear if there is a compelling use case for it.
