I'm glad to report MediaWiki won the first prize at les Trophées du
Libre ( http://www.tropheesdulibre.org/rubrique.php3?id_rubrique=2
a french event geared towards free software, in the category 'special
php prize' created just this year.
Many people often forget that, backing Wikimedia Foundation's
projects, lies MediaWiki, an amazing piece of software. Today
developers's efforts were recognized.
The Trophées du Libre, 2nd edition this year, gathers people from
companies, associations, and also administration. Many people from
many different backgrounds, working in or with open source software,
sharing ideas, concerns (for instance software patents), solutions.
Many thanks and kudos to all developers who make it easy & fun to work
on Wikimedia's projects!
