  1. Update from Vincent
    • Vincent I'm learning Ansible via an online course.
    • Vincent My goal is to contribute to Meza.
  2. Connecting to New Users
    • Vincent Funny story about my first EMWCon. It was right after I started at NASA and didn't have much experience with MediaWiki. I listened to Lex's talk and I was in the front row, after the talk Lex approached me and asked me what I thought. One thing I didn't understand was what a Category was in a wiki so I asked him. Lex immediately asked if I was an "newbie".
    • Vincent I'd like to give a talk at the next EMWCon targeted at new users.
      • Bryan That would be amazing! I wish I had attended something like that at my first EMWCon and I'd still be really excited about that
  3. MediaWiki Skins
    • Bernhard I talked to the developer of Tweeki
      • Bryan Tweeki shouldn't be confused with the alternate wiki platform Twiki
    • Trying to decide if there's a community need for Chameleon
    • Is it possible the community should choose Tweeki over Chameleon? It seems Chameleon is not being developed
    • Jeroen In related news, we are looking for a UI developer to collaborate wtih
    • Mark What's the difference between Tweeki & Chameleon? They are both just MW + Bootstrap
      • Bernhard One difference is Tweeki can identify logged-in users and present different information (special pages, etc.) that non-logged-in users don't see
    • Ike I love Chameleon, I use it often, and have contributed patches in the past
    • Joroen There's another new skin called Medik
    • Ike I think there's an advantage to having 2 options, 3 isn't as ideal, law of diminishing returns
    • Cindy Here's a link to different MW Skins
  4. MediaWiki News
