Scripto is an alternative to the ProofreadPage extension used
by Wikisource. It is based on Mediawiki but also on OpenLayers,
the software used to zoom and pan in OpenStreetMap.
The only website I have seen that uses Scripto is the U.K.
War Department papers, and in many ways it is more clumsy
than ProofreadPage. But there might be a few ideas that could
be worth picking up. Take a look.
The software is described at http://scripto.org/
As for reference installations, they mention

Congratulations to all !
It makes my dream comes true today !
Thanks million times!
<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Note> seemed like an easy target for
demoing the newly deployed Score extension
(<https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:Score>) on a production site,
if anyone's interested. I tried looking around for a point and click
lilypond or ABC code generation tool (preferably Web-based), but a lot of
these tools quickly went over my head.

See below for the announcement I just sent to the wikitech-ambassadors
list about the new Score extension available to you all.
It's already been announced on the Scriptorium, as many of you probably
I just wanted to cover all the bases.
All the best,

The following was posted at English Wikipedia. I reproduce it here due to
the wider implementation and approach that the community can have
Implementing Easier and More Efficient Metadata Tags on Wikisource
Disclosure: I am contracted by Creative Commons LRMI Project.
I would like to propose adopting the use of a by-default-disabled
Mediawiki metadata feature that would greatly improve the organization and
search engine visibility of the content of Wikisource. These metadata tags
are part of Schema.org which was developed by Google, Bing, Yahoo, and
Yandex, and can be viewed here. The benefit of these tags is that when used
within educational content such as on Wikisource, the information contained
on the page is made into a way that is easily intelligible to machines by
changing just one line with the Mediawiki configuration. An example of
MediaWiki using Schema can be seen by using Google's testing tool. These
metatags were originally developed by LRMI but their recent adoption of
Schema.org is a huge milestone that has great potential to improve the
efficiency of the way we are able to search educational resources and
content on places like Wikisource. Maximilian.Klein.LRMI (talk) 21:29, 22

I have let a light response with the post, however, there are many with
more knowledge of this than I, and as mentioned a interlanguage WS
community response seems better.
Apologies if this unwelcome on the Wikisource list -- I know from
speaking with the conference organizer that they are very interested
in hearing from community projects like Wikisource.
Call for Proposals
Proposals are invited for the Social, Digital, Scholarly Editing
conference, to be held in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada, from 11-13
July 2013. This conference comes at a critical inflection point in
the transformation of scholarly editing caused by the two massive
shifts of the digital revolution: the movement of all data into
digital form and the creation of new modes of collaboration. For the
first: the creation of massive amounts of data in digital form has
already transformed the basic materials of scholarly editing, while
digital tools offer new methods for exploration and publication. For
the second: where scholarly editing in the past has been typically the
work of a single dedicated scholar, the development of social media
opens up the possibilities of collaborative work across whole
communities. These changes affect every aspect of scholarly editing.
This conference will explore the theoretical, practical, and social
implications of these changes.
Proposers accepted from this open call will join some thirty invited
conference participants, drawn from scholarly editing, digital
humanities, and the 'citizen scholar' movement. Confirmed
participants are Barbara Bordalejo, Susan Brown, Ben Brumfield,
Gabriel Egan, Paul Eggert, Paul Flemons, Alex Gil, James Ginther,
Tuomas Heikkilä, Fotis Jannidis, Laura Mandell, Murray McGillivray,
Brent Nelson, Catherine Nygren, Dan O'Donnell, Roger Osbourne, Wendy
Phillips-Rodriguez, Elena Pierazzo, Ken Price, Peter Robinson,
Geoffrey Rockwell, Peter Shillingsburg, Ray Siemens, Michael
Eberle-Sinatra, Joshua Sosin, Melissa Terras, Edward Vanhoutte, and
Joris van Zundert (to be confirmed: Hans Gabler and Jerome McGann).
The conference will be preceded by a one-day workshop, focussing on
collaborative editing systems.
Proposals should focus on some aspect of contemporary digital
scholarly editing. We welcome descriptions of current projects,
theoretical or speculative discussions, bibliographic work, or any
aspect of scholarly digital editing. Papers considering scholarly
editing in a communal, collaborative context are particularly
encouraged. Proposals will be accepted under two strands: one for
students of graduate and doctoral programs, one for all others. We
particularly welcome proposals from the GO::DH (Global
Outlook::Digital Humanities) community, addressing digital scholarly
editing in a global context. We will able to offer financial support
for accepted proposals, if needed, in the form of bursaries and/or
funding for all travel and other costs, and will give preference in
allocating funding to proposers from circumstances where support is
rarely available (if at all). As well as a 500 word abstract,
proposers should submit a cover letter explaining their interest in
the conference theme, why they want to attend and indicate what level
of support (if any) they might need to come to the conference.
Proposal submission will close on 26 April; successful proposers will
be notified by 10 May 2013.
