00:08: - How to get what you want from MediaWiki's developers
Sumana Harihareswara
Want improvements in the wiki software? I'll tell you how the
Programrs work, what information sources they pay attention
to, and seven ways for interested community members to make
bigger impacts on MediaWiki development.

23:09 - Editing 2.0: MediaWiki's upcoming visual
editor and the future of templates
Brion Vibber, Neil Kandalgaonkar, Trevor Parscal
A rich ecosystem of templates and extensions has made
MediaWiki as used in Wikipedia and other projects incredibly
rich and powerful, but has taken its toll on ease of use. This year
we're changing that: we're creating a solid specification of the
wiki markup and a document structure to build from it, which
many editing and conversion tools will be able to use directly.
We'll be demoing an early version of the visual editor built on
top of this, as well as showing off testing tools that anyone can
use to help identify problem pages and templates that need to
be restructured to work in the future.

34:05 - Testing for MediaWiki
Mark Hershberger, Markus Glaser, Priyanka Dhanda,
Trevor Parscal
One of the things that the MediaWiki software lacks and would
benefit greatly from is a robust and reliable test infrastructure.
This panel would discuss feasible ways to achieve better test
coverage of the software and how we can encourage test
driven development.
