On a related note, are there any plans to add support
doc/xls/ppt documents described at
to a general release instead of
leaving it up to site admins to hack? In my opinion, the extensions found
at the URL above are the most critical features missing for MediaWiki to
be used as a full-featured CMS in a large enterprise.
In 1.5 you can set up a search engine plugin, which could modify the
index updating behavior.
I'm not sure if this is something we'd include in the core distribution;
remember our target audience is large-scale free-content prose projects,
not enterprise internal CMSes. :)
