Berlin Hackathon 2011, 13.-15.05.2011, betahaus
The Berlin Hackathon 2011 was an opportunity for MediaWiki developers to come together, squash bugs and write crazy new features. Like the last two years, it was awesome. Unlike the previous two years, there was more hacking and less talking. Also, this time around, we did this independently from the Wikimedia Conference. Wikimedia Deutschland was also happy to host the meetings of the European Wiki loves Monuments team and the Language Committee during the Hackathon (a.k.a. hackfest or hackaton or developers' meeting).
Fixing the parser. Once and for all. New parser design, MediaWiki.next
Report & demos of initial work from Brion & Trevor, leading into ongoing work with YOU!
quick review of prior work, ideas combined from various sources (building off Data Summit notes and more to come)
provisional wiki document model structure description
provisional migration strategy: way to mark pages or templates as safe, and a sane system for identifying when 'tainted' bits are on the page and what to do about it. Creating tools to help people manage this transition will be a big plus.
concrete examples of migrating existing bad template usages to use new-structure-friendly constructs
concrete example of using a bulk parser to identify those problematic constructs in existing page & template usage
