(New to mediawiki-l, so unsure if this has been discussed before)

Is there a sort of 'Extension Bundle' that gets you baseline stuff that
people who are used to wikipedia 'expect'? ParserFunctions and Cite come to
mind, but I'm sure there are plenty others.

Hey Ram! Welcome to mediawiki-india :)

Agreed on all points, and I see some parts where we could collaborate and
start putting together stuff. If I'm reading this right, here are the
potential projects that might be done:

1. A default mediawiki installation bundle (MW + A bunch of Extensions)
2. A default 'templatekit' (Commonly used templates from enwiki / other
3. Better 'levels' of information/deetail on the Manual

Perhaps we could start doing internal hackathons (online, with experienced
people from the India MW community pitching in) to do these things? These
won't be workshops, but online events for us to get stuff done. Thoughts?

Semantic Mediawiki is a lot of fun (despite a few performance problems that
prevent it from being used on large wikis). Nischay is a contributor for
SMW from India, but I don't think he's on this list yet. I'll forward this
to him and see what we can do about that too!


P.S. I'll forward this to mediawiki-l in a while, since I think it is
relevant there too.
