Package: mediawiki-extensions
Version: 1.6
Severity: wishlist

There're some interesting extensions that is nice to be included in debian
The following are the requested extensions,

* http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:UsabilityInitiative (require
mediawiki 1.16+): enhanced edit toolbar and others.  The development
of this extension is being driven by the Wikipedia Usability

* http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:CreateBox (require mediawiki
1.11+): this extension is used in wikia.com

CreateBox is a specialized version of Inputbox that focuses on page
creation.  If a user were to attempt to create a page that already
exists, Inputbox allows the user do so, and disregards any preloaded
content or edit introductions. CreateBox, by contrast, directs the
user to an error page where they can enter a different page name, and
all specified properties are preserved.
