Where will deleted articles be? Tables archive_page, archive_revision,
archive_text? Will it just be like the current version?
At the moment it uses an archive table only slightly modified from 1.4
(it includes a stored revision ID also so this can be restored on
undeletion), however I expect to be changing this soon to make it easier
to eg show the existence of deleted items in page contributions, or
individual revisions in a page's history which have been removed for
copyvio etc. A rev_deleted flag is likely; I'm not quite sure yet how
best to handle it on the page side.
At what stage (beta, rc, etc) of 1.5 will you be using
it on Wikimedia
Generally we've declared "beta" at the point at which we're willing to
roll out the software on some of our production wikis for live testing.
Will you wait for 1.4.0 first?
I'm pretty sure 1.4.0 will be out first. :) Just finishing up some
language file tweaks etc.
Is a Bugzilla search for the new features possible?
Can you provide a
link or some instructions?
You can check the RELEASE-NOTES if anyone's updated. Probably not. ;)
Will you bring up http://test.wikipedia.org
I'm planning to set up a 1.5 test wiki on my personal site soon. I took
down the old test.wikipedia.org
because we've had a history of having
what are in fact security holes checked in on the dev branch and not
noticed for a while, and I really don't want that running on our
production servers at this stage.
Is the HEAD branch in CVS the one which will become
REL1_5? (I don't
understand CVS very much)
Right; at some point we'll create a REL1_5 branch which will freeze the
state of the trunk.
Is that branch currently usable without major
Might I find anything really cool if I tried to use it?
It's still going through some upheaval, so I wouldn't recommend it.
