I have written an extension to give sysops the ability to change user
passwords as our intranet doesn't allow mails from other applications
than Lotus Notes, so password mailing is not possible.
I'd like to know if it is possible to have the source of such a "third
party" extension stored in the MediaWiki CVS if it is published under
GPL and/or contributed to the MediaWiki project. I could also make that
a sourceforge project but I guess that an extension is more easily found
and used by others if it is contained in the official CVS. If there are
additional conditions (like code reviews, certificate of no criminal
record :) I'd be happy to check if I can fulfill them.
Slightly other topic:
I'm also in the process of converting my external "wikifyer" script into
an extension. It makes suggestions which words on a page can be wikified
(based on which other page titles exist in the wiki) and edits pages
based on the users decision which links to add. The current script can
already be used from an external page for the German wikipedia. I'd like
to contribute that extension to the MediaWiki project too. Anybody
interested in such a thing?
