Code, code, code away home

Hacking was cut short a bit on our first day at Wikimania yesterday due to troubles with the conference facility network 🙁 but we did get a lot done:

  • Some basic specs and programming interface for a configuration database have been hashed out — once implemented, this’ll give us infrastructure to start phasing out the more fragile parts of LocalSettings.php editing and making it much easier to manage both multi-wiki sites and one-off installs!
  • Bunch of folks hashed out some details on getting our mapping servers set up and online
  • Lots of general code review and poking!

Feel free to join us during the day — project page on Wikimania wiki and #wikimania-codeathon on IRC!
