There was a question about the changes:

Can you explain exactly what this refers to? "wider support"? Update sql
scripts? What changes have you made to facilitate this?

1. Added creteBcrat.php which allows recreation of sysop and bureaucrat
accounts with a fresh database directly through mysql without needing to
run MediaWiki install. See meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Data_dumps. This is
a preferred environment for mwdumper and mwimport during XML import.
2. Added over 40 missing language codes to wikipedia-interwiki.sql to
synchronize with the current enwiki XML dumps.
3. Included a sample LocalSettings.php script with examples for
enabling tidylib, local HTML caching, and extensions necessary to render
the XML dumps as of enwiki-20070206.
