I run http://fixedreference.org <http://fixedreference.org/> (where
we've put static periodic copies of some of the WPs e.g.
http://july.fixedreference.org/fr/20040727/wikipedia/Accueil etc.) and I
have received a request from a charity which distributes 1500
refurbished computers a year to low income families in New York for a
static version of WikiPedia to put on the computers they distribute.
I don't have an offline static version. I guess it would take a few days
in Perl to write an offline static code. Am too busy at present. Anyone
prepared to help? I am user BozMo on en.
Oh, and you posted a request for people to help with static copies. Am
happy helping if you know what you want? I put up monthly copies of
whichever WPs people have asked me to anyway at present on FR.

We currently stand at 132 open bugs out of 1112 total reported bugs,
down 7 from yesterday. We're a smidge behind schedule.
The bughunt goal is to reach 107 open bugs (half of the 214 we had at
the start) which is another 25 bugs down -- let's see if we can reach
that in the next day or so and get 1.3.0 final out the door!

I found in bug list this bug
[ 578079 ] Nonexistent pages on watchlist.
It's a old one but the problem I wanted to mention was this
when you look at Special:Watchlist&magic=yes we can see that everithing
But as far as I known we can watch page that doesn't still exist and
even page that no more exist
Could it be feasible to see this list like other links in wikipedia
(blue if they exist, and red if not)
May be could it be an option

Someone may be interested in knowing that the English wikipedia is now
bigger than a DVD: an ISO image I made including all images and all
articles as html files weighted in at 4,707 MB, when a standard DVD-R is
only 4,480 MB or so.
So now a "complete" edition is impossible even with a DVD. A selection
process must be used, or at least images should be used with moderation

Mozilla does on-the-fly decompression of tar.gz files,
at least. Might take an extra split-second to open an

Is there a FAQ or recipe book for skinning mediawiki? I like its general

Thanks much for any pointers,
I am interested in installing the EasyTimeline extension. Unfortunately documentation of this is rather sparse. I even wrote the author, Erik, of the EasyTimeline script, but he did not know how to do this for mediawiki. After some fruitless attempts to get an answer via IRC, I will now try it this way.
Where can I read more about installing the EasyTimeline extension for mediawiki?
Who can help me setting it all up?
Hope you can help me,

After ritually sacrificing several furred and feathered animals ;-) I am
*pretty* sure I got the template bugs fixed that, apparently, were
introduced all at once after 1.2.6. and should now be resolved in CVS HEAD.
I may guide your attention to Parser.php, lines 858/859, and 1914,
If anyone can confirm that this is indeed the solution to the various
problems, without any serious side effects, we can close the bugs
and probably some more. Worth checking out.
