(removing bug from To, adding Gabriel, Parsoid developer, and Markus Glaser, another member of the MediaWiki release team)

First, as we move forward with MediaWiki development we need to hear from users like you who make good use of MediaWiki outside of the WMF.  Please join the wikitech-l mailing list and make sure your voices are heard so that we can include your insights in future architecture discussions.

Next, I'm directly interested in packaging Parsoid.  While I'm keenly aware of the differences between RPMs and DEBs, I am working on an RPM for Parsoid for deploying the Visual Editor at a client of mine.  I plan to submit that back to Fedora.  It would be good to have some dialogue on best practices and share information where appropriate.

For instance, I talked with Gabriel Wicke -- the main dev behind Parsoid -- about the init scripts he is creating for Wikimedia's use (he is working on Debian packages -- at least something the WMF can deploy on their cluster) and the startup and shutdown conditions after I saw other node.js daemons that had specific APIs for shutting down and he said that shouldn't be necessary -- the node.js daemon's response to a signal should be sufficient.
