Over this period, 217 wikis were created by 182 unique users.
604 new users signed up on ShoutWiki.

Technical & operations

96 commits were made to our internal Subversion (SVN) source code repository.

19 bugs in our Bugzilla bug tracking system were marked as resolved during this period.

6 new MediaWiki extensions were introduced during this quarter:

  • Lock Down English Pages — an extension to prevent non-staff users from accidentally messing up the English interface messages on our Interface Messages Wiki (MediaWiki.org infopage)
  • Variables — an extension for doing complicated tricks with templates, available on request
  • Babel — allows users to show off their language skills via “Babel boxes” on their user pages; enabled globally (bug #178)
  • Piwik — logs statistics about visitors to our Piwik system
  • Semantic MediaWiki — a very complex extension for adding all kinds of semantic data about the wiki’s contents; available on request
  • Semantic Forms — allows users to add, edit and query data using forms; requires the Semantic MediaWiki extension and hence is available only on request

On behalf of the staff team,
Jack Phoenix
Head of the Customer Support Team
