I've a question, I registered an account on MediaZilla, and for some
reason the e-mail that has my password is... not appearing. Anywhere. I
keep checking my POP server (yes I did put in the right address), but
Thunderbird says there's nothing on the server. So, did the server
forget about my registration or does it just take a long time?
I've created a REL1_4 branch in CVS. To update your existing HEAD
cvs up -dP -r REL1_4
To pull a fresh copy (as a developer):
cvs -d:ext:firstname.lastname@example.org:/cvsroot/wikipedia \
co -r REL1_4 phase3
(If you're using Sourceforge's anonymous CVS server it may take a few
hours before the update goes through there.)
The release branch frees up CVS for more experimental code, while
REL1_4 should now concentrate on getting what's already in there stable
and working. We'll tag and release a few beta versions over the next
couple of weeks, with a 1.4.0 final release when the main things are
If we make additional 'big' changes before release, they should be done
in HEAD first. Bug fixes should naturally go both in REL1_4 *and* the
As far as future scheduling: I would very much like us to start
getting releases out on a faster schedule, each with tighter changes
more concentrated on particular areas than the swamps we've done in the
past. Aiming for 1.5 in February would be nice (~2 months from 1.4).
We'll do some planning on future directions at the 21C3 conference in
Berlin in late December.

Hi all, I am wondering if there is any interest in some mods
to enhance MediaWikis ability to be multi-hosted from a
single core of code ?
I've done this a few times now with phpBB2 and Wordpress and
mostly have the "pattern" down on how to do it. I just spent
an hour with MediaWiki and there are not too many changes
involved. Is there any interest in this kind of thing and if
so where is the best place to post the details... wiki, here ?
