There is a lot of potential in
Wikisource, but it depends
heavily on the ProofreadPage extension and it has several
bugs that are reported but don't get fixed.
ThomasV is the main developer and perhaps he is the only
maintainer? It would be in the interest of the Wikimedia
Foundation to assign a salaried developer or two into
developing a more robust framework for Wikisource, either
by improving the existing extension or by integrating
some or all of its functionality into MediaWiki proper.
People everywhere have a need to make some PDF (or Djvu)
document available on a website, page by page, with the
ability to add categories and talk pages. This ability
is what the ProofreadPage extension adds to MediaWiki.
In my mind, it is as essential as the support for
JPEG images and automatically generating thumbnails.
Adding multipage documents to a wiki should be a far more
common need than adding mathematical equations.
Are you thinking of some bugs in paticular? I would like to see what has already been
said at bugzilla if you have the numbers.
