I am wiki full time editor now.
Here is the what I done these month.

1. Openmoko wiki system is Media wiki 1.2, since we upgrade our wiki 
system, month ago , I start to ask our IT put the extension on wiki.
For example, category tree extension.
Now , everyone can use the tag, like this
<categorytree mode=pages>Category name</categorytree>
2.About read wiki offline (dump), actually , I already ask our IT do 
this since 4, July. I will push them. This function is very useful .
3. I would like to put the Youtube extension , then we can see the video 
on wiki. I would like to know if this useful ? Personal opinion , I like 
to have this.
4. I admit that , to the beginner , it is not easy to know how much 
useful page , they can find on wiki . So, I make a page name Openmoko 
official Index page.
5. Then , I classify every pages of wiki , put the category on them,

6.It's great that have many people help me to maintain wiki page. In 
fact , Too many page, hard to verify if this page is out of date? Even , 
I use google analytic , it just can tell which page is popular , but 
can't tell if the content is correct or not.
I plan to put the rating function on wiki. Perhape it can help many 
people who visit wiki , know how other people think this page is useful 
or not.

7.I would like to have a page like for developer, everyone who is the 
beginner , want to join and develop software, and use this page to get 
every material they want .
It just like a book , and has catalog like this:

Part I Choose your software develop tool
Part III Running your program
Part IV Program sharing
Part V Install
Part VI Tools used on Openmoko

Here is the page

Actually , 6,7 is my plan now, have more people edit the wiki page, make 
content become more correct and useful , will be great help .
