SoC:2006

Amit Vyas-2
Hi all,
I am planning to work on Mediawiki for google SoC, in particular I think of
following project,

While editing we need to take care of adding relevant [[page title | some
text ]] for the words which already have a page created. there is no
functionality for this as I know.

I would like to know is this functionality required ?

This project at instance appears to be text parsing one which Please suggest
on this.

I have last test on 8th/may so I have not gone into details as of now.

I am currently pursuing my Masters course in Computer science, from BITS
Pilani[http://www.bits-pilani.ac.in] , and Since I am not into web
design/programming yet I maintain a site and 2 internal wikimedia servers.

You are referring to automatic wikification.  There is an existing patch to
do this at http://bugzilla.wikimedia.org/show_bug.cgi?id=2336.  Automatic
wikification for Wikipedia has been proposed numerous times on this list.
Every time it is, people bring up good reasons why it should not be
implemented, especially on large wikis.  For more information, search the
archives of this list.

It is true that automatic wikifaction of everything is a bad idea, but
there is a very good application for restricted automatic wikifaction.
With that I mean that only specific special words in specified contexts
would be automatically linked. Such as technical terms and
abbreviations. The reason is that at  the time of creating a specific
page  there were no pages for all the terms and the original author did
not intent to create them, but when the wiki evolves they are created.
What I have in mind is that all the words that have an article in a
category "Auto_Words" are autowikified in articles in category, say,
"Auto_Me".

This is not something we would generally consider to be very useful or
practical, so would not likely be accepted as a Summer of Code project.

That was anyway what I need personally sometimes, and just for the comments
except from performance related issues there should not be any problem with
such a extension/feature since we all do it manually every time. Anyway
thanks, I would try to look for some other interesting work.

A overall look on projects available
http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Summer_of_Code_2006#Evaluate_PostgreSQL_as_an_alternative_database_for_MediaWikiseems
to me intresting to me following was straight

   - get this existing PostgreSQL support working properly again
   - benchmark it on heavy simulated loads

can I get comments on what exactly you mean by

   - study the scalability of using Postgres' built-in replication
   support for large installations such as Wikipedia


If possible can I ask what is the motivation for using postgres (I have
always worked with Mysql only :( .  )
