Good evening, wikitech-l!
EtherEditor testing, round 3: Minor stress test
I've been developing an extension recently called EtherEditor . I
emailed this list about it twice  before , mostly to ask for help
testing it at various times.
To sum up, the extension, with proper configuration, enables multi-user,
real-time collaborative editing of the wikitext of any page.
Well, this project is coming to the point where *I* think it's pretty
stable. There are still a few details to iron out, and I'm excited to
fix those things, but there are also a few things I haven't ever tested.
Most notably, multiple users for an extended period of time, and all the
fun bugs that are sure to appear in that case.
So I'm here to ask for some volunteers to help me test EtherEditor
tomorrow, between 20:00 and 22:00 UTC. I'll be in #ethereditor on
Freenode with a list of things to try out, and really, some number of
people helping me stress test the connections to the backend would be
If you don't have an account on Freenode, or prefer to contact me in
some other way, the best way is probably to use this email address. If
you have any questions, you can always ask them on-list.
If you want to chat about the extension at any time, you can always join
the IRC channel (#ethereditor on Freenode), and I'm always online.
Remember that IRC isn't necessarily a synchronous communication system,
and be patient when asking questions.
In case you want to try the extension, it is and has been running on my
TestWiki instance , so feel free to attack it! If you could report
any problems on the Bugzilla , I will gladly fix them with great
quickness! If you want to try installing it on your own MediaWiki
instance, the mw.org entry  has some instructions for that. As
before, please report problems to the Bugzilla  :)
