About SvenEdit

I am occupationally developing MediaWiki extensions, with the target of using MediaWiki in the eLearning domain (Computer Aided Instruction). I want to contribute core MediaWiki hacks and extensions back to the code base/project, thus I've started this account.

I'm actually not sure if I want to do that anonymously or not. --Sven 18:34, 15 February 2010 (UTC)

Extensions and hacks I've writtenEdit

  • Authentification against Unix/NIS/NSS/Linux PAM
  • Internal file uploads (private area) for special files with mod_rewrite and a PHP frontend, very comfortable controllable via templates
  • Integration of Mailman (Mailing list/Newsletter, subscribe/unsubscribe forms) into mediawiki, using SecuredHTML
  • Very heavy search assistant extension (own search engine for external searches)
  • Extended SecuredHTML

Things I want to writeEdit

  • Better merging of internal and external accounts (external authentification), especially making it possible to log in with aliases of own user name
