Wikimedia’s new biggest fan is named Sean Michael Kerner, and he’s
published about it in NewsForge, an online OS journal.

Kerner is dutifully critical, calling the documentation “somwhat
‘dispersed’,” that tweaking skins “involves a bit of effort,” and wishes
for an interface for automatic backups of the database, and “more granular
control of users and permissions in one master dashboard”.  But he ends
with embarrassingly high praise:

“Downloading, installing, and running MediaWiki for my own purposes has
only enhanced my admiration for both the wiki and the WikiMedia
Foundation. It’s not only easy to use, it’s also easy to install and
deploy. In the true spirit of the open source community MediaWiki is a
shining example of what open content collaboration is all about.”

I guess he read [[m:Things we wish people would say about us]] before
sitting down at his keyboard.  Oh, he also offered to help with the
documentation.  Whatta guy.
