Poster « Connexion » durant la première conférence des développeurs MediaWiki, qui s'est déroulée le 29 décembre 2004 à Berlin, Allemagne.

Les développeurs sont les personnes qui contribuent au code du logiciel MediaWiki. Ils valident les modifications dans le dépôt Git central en les mettant en relecture dans Gerrit où la copie la plus récente du logiciel est rangée. Les développeurs comprennent le personnel payé par la Fondation Wikimedia et les bénévoles. Chacun peut soumettre un patch pour relecture après avoir créé un Compte développeur (mais uniquement les personnes de la maintenance peuvent le fusionner). Pour connaître les développeurs actifs actuellement, essayez https://www.openhub.net/p/mediawiki/contributors, qui fournit de beaux résumés de toute sorte de statistiques les plus variées.

Developers are not to be confused with system administrators, who are people having shell or root access to Wikimedia Foundation servers, where the code repository is stored. They might not really be developers; in many cases they rarely use their commit access, or if they do, only to maintain non-MediaWiki things in the repository.

Contributeurs de maintenance

A maintainer of a specific project (including MediaWiki core or an extension) has +2 access to the relevant Git repository, so that they can merge patches others submitted. They usually regularly respond to bug reports and changeset review requests. A list of maintainers are kept at Developers/Maintainers .


Historically, developers also managed Wikimedia Foundation servers (now managed by system administrators). Before bureaucrat and steward groups were created, developers were the only ones able to promote and demote sysops, and lock user accounts (before the "block" feature of MediaWiki existed). Thus they had an important role in the Wikipedia power structure.

From April 2006 to March 2012, Subversion was used. Only people with Subversion commit access (which must be approved by SVN administrators) could submit codes. Codes submitted to Subversion were merged to MediaWiki codebase immediately (though only be manually deployed to Wikimedia wikis by a system administrator), and may be reviewed by "coders" before they are deployed. In January 2013, the MediaWiki SVN repository was made read-only. All active projects have moved to Git.
