Dead link[edit]

The "available in SVN" link pointing to gives me a 404 :/ Please fix so I can install this awesome wiki software to run my site! --Jeroen De Dauw (talk) 18:07, 11 May 2012 (UTC)

It's on sourceforge svn 18:23, 11 May 2012 (UTC)
I just fixed the link. Cheers --[[kgh]] (talk) 20:10, 11 May 2012 (UTC)

Add more?[edit]

My short question regards some stats, How many have downloaded MediaWiki and how many wikis is out there approximately?

First question: hard to say. Second: we have absolutely no idea; we need help! --Nemo 15:30, 27 November 2013 (UTC)

Jimbo Wales' programming[edit]

Jimbo notes that he has some programming skills. How much of the programming necessary to implement Wikipedia did Jimbo do personally? I'm guessing his contribution to the MediaWiki core, if any, isn't that much, since he isn't listed at Special:Version. What about the UseModWiki days, and Nupedia? Did he do any of the programming for those projects/incarnations? Leucosticte (talk) 01:57, 9 March 2014 (UTC)

Elaborate the pre-history?[edit]

Hi, I was intrigued by the w:UseModWiki section, and on that page I see that the source code is directly descended from AtisWiki, then maybe loosely descended from CvWiki and WikiBase. I'd love to enrich this section, credit authors. Also, the first two sentences about Wikipedia make me itch to reword slighty. Adamw (talk) 01:02, 11 March 2020 (UTC)
