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

Distribution[edit]

A first proposal for extensions that are delivered with Sunflower

Technical details[edit]

  • The distribution comes with a "best practice default configuration" for all extensions/skins.
  • 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:
    • Dealing with mutually excluding extensions (like Semantic / Cargo, Google Analytics / Matomo): extensions can be part of the distribution, but they are not activated
  • Decision making and responsiblities
    • Release Board / Sunflower Consortium: Who will attend?
  • Roadmap?
    • First release in February 2020?
