Invitation to help beta-test the MediaWiki 1.19 extension for the Wikipedia Education Program

Rob Schnautz
The MediaWiki developers have been working hard to integrate certain elements of the Wikipedia Education Program into MediaWiki. If anyone is interested in helping beta-test the new extension, click (or copy and paste) the link below to get started:

http://education.wmflabs.org/index.php/MW_1.18:Community_portal/Welcome,_beta_testers!

Please note that this site does not will not represent official Wikipedia Education Program data. Feel free to alter the data on the wiki however you wish; the more testing you do, the better!

Thanks,

Thanks for the post, Rob.  Will an Education Program admin have the same
access levels as a sysop on the English Wikipedia?

No, the "Education Program admin" refers to a volunteer administrator of the
program, such as a regional or national ambassador. The title varies
depending on what part of the world they operate in, so simply calling them
"Education Program regional ambassador" doesn't quite line up on some
individuals. I'm personally not fond of the "admin" nomenclature myself, as
it does (as you point out) confuse the individual with sysops. We're open to
other ideas for naming the user access level if you have any.

The users that are assigned this user access level will inherit privileges
from the ep-instructor, ep-campus-ambassador, and ep-online-ambassador, and
will be able to administer those user access levels. Other than that, it's a
typical autoconfirmed user.

Thanks,
Rob

We'd like to thank all those who spent time helping beta-testing. Several
bugs were identified and resolved, and we'd like to bring in some more
beta-testers for a second round.

The link has changed slightly (which might be why people stopped
beta-testing):

Thanks!
Rob
