Are the two mozilla skins of MediaWiki available for download somewhere (as a package rather than downloading the files one by one)? Dori 18:04, 1 December 2005 (PST)
- Yes, sort-of, but be catious when you consider using it, i do not think it is GPL/etc. -Callek 09:04, 2 December 2005 (PST)
Follow up, are there many changes that you guys have made to the stock MediaWiki release for the skin? Dori 18:43, 1 December 2005 (PST)
- we have made few changes to MediaWiki overall, you can see _all_ the stuff we have done for wordpres and mediawiki in our cvs, see the bonsai link: bonsai -Callek 09:04, 2 December 2005 (PST)
Very few people edit this wiki per day. Why not enable editing for unregistered users, like Wikipedia does, and see how it goes? Unforgettableid 22:21, 14 December 2005 (PST)
- I think it has to do with (a) spam prevention, (b) accountability (for technical related things), and (c) licence attribution, incase changes are ever needed. But don't quote me on that ;-). --Callek 09:27, 15 December 2005 (PST)
- Yeah we already tried anonymous posting, and it really doesn't suit this project well. We do need a certain amount of accountability and so forth. -- dria 09:44, 15 December 2005 (PST)
Sorry if this is the wrong place to ask about this, but it's the closest thing I've run across to the right area to bring it up. Mozdev.org has a list of abandoned extensions here: http://www.mozdev.org/projects/abandoned.html It would appear that contributors can pick up projects on mozdev.org if they are willing, but I haven't found any such faciliy for addons.mozdev.org What is the / Is there a procedure for reporting / picking up / killing abandoned projects?
As some of you may know, I have been going through some of the more important projects that appear abandoned, researching their current state, contacting the authors, and reporting back to the AMO extension page. I think where we are going to run into problems is when the more popular extensions get abandoned. In particular, no one knows how to contact the author of FoxyVoice, and for reasons yet unknown, FireVox was never completely set up on mozdev.org and AMO. This leaves a gaping hole in Firefox functionality, and people are already starting say 'just go use 'Opera'. So.. back to the question, what is the procedure for abandoned / apparently abandoned extensions? -- Crogon 02:18, 16 December 2005 (PST)
- I'll ask around and see if I can get an answer for you. -- dria 14:23, 16 December 2005 (PST)
