Description Sumana Harihareswara 2012-12-29 08:10:39 UTC
It's hard for administrators to learn of the existence of extensions, and to intuit which extensions would be best to install, and thus to get on the path to becoming power users (and possibly developers).

Therefore, I suggest that we choose some extensions portal on, and then add a pointer/link to that onto the last page of the MediaWiki installation screen.

This is easier than bug 31279. :-)

Merged, looks fixed. I didn't even know an "extension portal" existed. I see it's the manual page [[mw:Manual:Extensions]], we need to keep an eye on it now.
