[Foundation-l] Regarding the one million dollar usability grant and already extant but unused extensions

Semantic Mediawiki and Semantic Forms are already high quality mediawiki
extensions that go along way towards usability and quality issues. They are
also free. I hope the Wikimedia Foundation plans to flex its muscle in
urging projects to adopt these extensions as a part of this larger goal,
rather than dumping a million dollars into the development of new
technologies. I thought 20,000 was too much for the rating extension, a
million is definitely far too much for usability given that basic options
haven't even been explored yet.
