Sunflower MediaWiki is a new multi-purpose MediaWiki distribution.

(This is a draft)


  • Creation of a joint project and impact point for third-party users
  • Development of a common basis for different projects: Meza, Semantic MediaWiki, BlueSpice MediaWiki and many more
  • Define with which basic functions new functions have to work together
  • Opportunities: Development of programming standards and agreement on technologies and architectures
  • Promoting MediaWiki and additional bundles / communities
  • Deliver a "essential MediaWiki" for admins around the world
  • Organize the maintenance of the included extensions

Target group[edit]

  • Admins and developers who run MediaWikis in a professional environment
  • Cloud Service Providers

It also comes with a "best practice default configuration" for all of these extensions/skins.

Technical details[edit]

The distribution is build using composer and published as "tarball" and "docker image" (may include Parsoid and ElasticSearch)

Release and Distribution[edit]

Approach: The releases of Sunflower will / can be delivered by Hallo Welt! for the MediaWiki Stakeholders. We offer an automatically (?) provisioned (?) rolling release on a public download portal: http://sunflowermediawiki.org/


A branding of one's own is time-consuming but necessary in order to create a project that is attractive and open to all stakeholders (from Wikimedia to Nichework, Meza to SMW) and builds bridges here.

Open questions[edit]

  • Distribution:
    • Adding Semantic / Cargo? BlueSpice Foundation? Basix extensions for extension families
  • Decision making and responsiblities
    • Release Board: Who will attend?
  • Roadmap?
