So the following updates have been made to the libreplanet mediawiki in
the last few days; see for

1. Upgrade from mediawiki 1.5.3 + difficult to port custom changes to
1.14.0 + authentication as an extension (thanks to peabo) + migration of
username namespace to the mediawiki default (first character must be
upper case - many thanks to leth on #libreplanet who wrote code that
made the Renameuser extension usable from the command line - code will
be released shortly as it seems generally useful.)

This change should make it *much* easier to upgrade in the future, as
well as to install additional extensions etc.

2. Subpages enabled in all namespaces, including Main.

3. Semantic Mediawiki -

4. Semantic Forms -

5. Calendar -

Other than that and technical doc for that I'm planning on:

1. Installing a better search extension - I've used and it seems nice,
but I'd welcome feedback/suggestions on this topic.

2. Installing OpenID support -

3. Installing whatever is needed to make comparison pages look as nice
as they do on Wikipedia - still looks ugly.

Please tell us if there is anything else you'd really like to have, here
or come to #libreplanet on freenode IRC to chat.
