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. MWStakeholders offer an automatically provisioned (?) rolling release on a public download portal: http://sunflowermediawiki.org/
  • There will be only one edition, where different sets of extensions can be enabled

Branding[edit]

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?
