Hi,

Neill - the basic plan is to just go through all of the Javascript, switching it over to jQuery and adding new features, and trying to make it work as well as possible; there's no major roadmap beyond that. Thanks for the 'datepicker' feature request: changes having to do with Semantic Forms Inputs are trickier, because that extension has its own developer, Stephan Gambke; and I don't want to step on anyone's toes. There's also some natural ambiguity about which inputs belong in SF and which belong in SFI; we definitely plan to talk to Stephan about all of that.

Denny - wouldn't improving the Javascript for Exhibit necessarily entail rewriting the whole thing? If so, that seems well beyond the scope of this project, and the Wikimedia Foundation is probably the wrong organization to be doing it... or do you think there's some relatively simple fix?

Finally, Sanyam, in his list of covered extensions, left out Semantic MediaWiki: I just wanted to clarify that that was part of the plan too, specifically the Special:Ask page.

I wouldn't mind if you would also take a look at the JS-using SRFs like Exhibit :) But it should be an optional goal, I agree.

Cheers,

Plus only being able to have one exhibit format query per page. Also the Prototype javascript engine used by Halo stopping maps working. There are all sorts of issues with IE7 as well, which whilst tempting, cannot be ignored.

I  have been accepted in Gsoc2010 to do a project with MediaWiki titled "Javascript overhaul of Semantic MediaWiki" under the mentor Yaron Koren. This is my first step in the world of open-source community and I get this exciting opportunity to work with MediaWiki.  I am sure I will have a lot of fun working with the community.
