I just saw the http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Version
which shows mediawiki version being used as 1.13alpha (r32485) .
Looking at the CVS commits
I see there were quite a few commits later as well as before and after
that with the latest commit
with the same subject SVN:  trunk/phase3 .
So on what basis of a particular alpha commit is it used to wikipedia?
Another question but slightly different, is there anyway to know by
either a mail or some RSS or somehow when the mediawiki back-end is
changed to show wikipedia? Let's say it moves to 1.13alpha (r32569) ;)
then how an interested/curious person can come to know without
visiting that particular URL?
Lastly, I'm subscribed but not talking any mail from wikipedia as
already over-subscribed & over-full with mail. But would be interested
to hear from all concerned, so please CC me when replying on the same
