Poster "sign-in" di konferensi pertama pengembang MediaWiki, yang dilaksanakan pada 29 Desember 2004 di Berlin, Jerman.

Pengembang adalah orang-orang yang berkontribusi kepada kode perangkat lunak MediaWiki. Mereka mengusulkan perubahan ke repositori Git pusat dengan mendorong perubahan untuk ditinjau di Gerrit di mana salinan perangkat lunak yang terbaru disimpan. Pengembang terdiri dari staf Yayasan Wikimedia yang dibayar dan para sukarelawan. Semua orang bisa mengajukan perubahan untuk ditinjau setelah membuat sebuah Akun pengembang (tetapi hanya para pemelihara yang bisa menggabungkannya). Untuk melihat pengembang mana saja yang benar-benar aktif, cobalah, yang memberikan ringkasan rinci dari berbagai jenis statistik menarik.

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.


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.
