Adam Shorland

Ad Huikeshoven Dutch Wikipedia (nl.wp) editor. Play with, and test Vagrant (roles). On Dutch Wikipedia the multiple slug (phab:T107745) or excessive whitespace in Visual Edit mode blocks furher adoption of VE. Looking forward to meet people how to tackle this problem, for example specifying a project and raising external funds through a grant application to outsource coding.
