Signup API (Original name: "Account Creation, Login Screens and
AJAX-ification of everything"). Goal: Implement the Account creation
proposal, which would allow for Ajax-based login. This was implemented
as the SignupAPI extension.
Status: The SignupAPI extension is currently at "experimental" status.

the goal of deploying the extension on WMF wikis.
