  • Discuss vision for Quarter 2 2009 and beyond.

Tickets entered, pending completion

  • Wouldn't it be easier to maintain the ToDo lists and Release tables in a Google spreadsheet? The parser extension tag, <gspread>, is used to embed Google spreadsheets like this example: olpc:User_talk:FGrose/sandbox, or this, olpc:Health_Sciences_Online#Links_to_content The sheets are hosted by Google and collaboration rights would be controlled by their mechanisms. Sure would add a lot of capability and usability.
    Added ticket (Trac #700) to install the extension dfarning 20:48, 5 April 2009 (UTC)

Test wikis

  • 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.
