I be bawolff. Also known as Brian Wolff or User:BWolff (WMF)

I am a MediaWiki developer. I primarily contribute to backend related things in core Mediawiki. Currently I work on the Wikimedia Security team, where among other things, I review new extensions prior to them being deployed. I am also the current maintainer of some extensions, such as: Extension:DynamicPageList (Wikimedia), Extension:SubpageSortkey, Extension:PageInCat, Extension:PreviewFunctions, Extension:NoCat, Extension:GoogleNewsSitemap (Think RSS version of DPL), and Extension:CategorySortHeaders. In general I like to fix interesting bugs that I hear about wherever they may be.

My home Wikimedia project was originally EN Wikinews, however now I spend almost all of my time doing MediaWiki related things.

I often hang out in the #mediawiki irc channel (among other channels) on freenode using the nick bawolff. Feel free to talk to me! If for some reason you wanted to email me, you can do so at Special:EmailUser/Bawolff.

I used to work for the WMF, but I don't anymore. See meta:User:Bawolff for more details.
