Sunflower MediaWiki is a new multi-purpose MediaWiki distribution.

(This is a draft)

Objectives[edit]

By providing an "essential MediaWiki" for administrators around the world, several goals are to be achieved.

  1. To promote the awareness and distribution of MediaWiki, extensions, bundles, communities and service providers.
  2. Create a collaborative project for third-party users and developers (non-profit and for-profit) to improve stability:
    1. Organizing the maintenance of the included extensions
    2. Sharpening awareness of the basic functions with which new functions must cooperate
    3. Providing a basis for the technical developments of various projects: Meza, Semantic MediaWiki, BlueSpice MediaWiki, Language Bundle and many more
    4. Development of programming standards and agreement on technologies and architectures

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. 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?
