Thanks for letting us know. You're the first to kick off this process after
en.wikipedia, so please keep us updated on how it goes. That way everyone
else will have a better idea of what to expect, and LiAnna and I can
document the process better for others.

Hi Sage, ty for information. Translation status in
Macedonian is 100%. I
think that this extension can help to our education program and I just
start process/discussion at mk.wikipedia.

I'm happy to answer what I can about the extension.
You can see the translation status for it here:
(If your language isn't fully translated, you can translated it at
The extension has some fundamental technical shortcomings related to the
way MediaWiki handles the content of course pages, and we're recommending
that other wikis not start using it until after those get fixed. For those
interested in the details, here is the tracking bug for that set of

"Depends on" bugs are the issues that we're going to fix within the next
The look of the extension will also be upgraded in the next few months.
You can see a rough partial roadmap for what we plan to work on here:
you have ideas for it, please talk with me, post to this mailing list, or
add things to the ideas list at the bottom of the roadmap.)
Even though we're suggesting the extension not be used for more
education programs until around August, you can--and probably should--start
the process soon if you think you'll want it on your home wikis. The basic
requirement before it can be deployed is to demonstrate consensus on your
wiki that it is wanted. I did that on English Wikipedia with this Request
don't need to have an RfC as complicated as that one; a simple
"yes/no" discussion would suffice if you want the default configuration.)
If you begin this process, please let me or LiAnna know (or better yet,
post to this list) so we can keep an eye on it and document how it goes so
that others can learn from it.
If you want to play around with the extension, you can do so on
me with your
username if you would like any of the user rights on
test2 so that you can create course pages, etc.
This page documents how we're using it on English Wikipedia, including
the "course page wizard" template I built to make it easier to create
decent course pages: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Course_pages(The
page wizard" is sort of a hack; later on, I hope to build
something more user-friendly into the extension itself.)

As far as I know, the MediaWiki Extension is still under construction
(although it is possible to use it); someone
(probably LiAnna) said in
Milano that the final version should be available in August 2013.
It's currently not internationalisable but they're working on it (I've
not seen a plan yet though).
