Re: How to distribute a Mediawiki project?
[In reply to]
Well, the Gadgets extension will have its own distribution system, as part
of the 2nd version of ResourceLoader:
As for distributing templates, it depends on what you mean by "something
like this". You can of course just create a page on mediawiki.org,
containing links to templates and/or XML files that people have created. If
you want a setup with forms like smw.referata.com has, you would need to
either have Semantic MediaWiki added to mediawiki.org (which I think would
be a great idea, by the way); or set up a new SMW-based wiki for this kind
of thing; or use an existing SMW-using wiki - though I can't think of one
that would exactly fit the bill.
